Annual Review 2017/18

Our best year yet

Last year the University enjoyed one of its best years to date. From securing our highest ever league table position to revolutionary defence research, it was a year of notable achievements and memorable moments right across campus. And we did it together, as the Loughborough family.

But we’re not done yet. A new year brings new opportunities and new challenges. It gives us 365 days to make this year even better than the last.

2018 you were incredible. 2019 we're ready for you.
