Loughborough University is first in the world for sport for a reason. The facilities, from the lecture rooms and labs to the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine, are incredible and very advanced. The teaching quality was amazing, too. Being taught by lecturers who were top in their areas with years of experience really helped me to engage. Their love and passion for the subject was obvious and their teaching was second-to-none.
