As well as Loughborough University there is Loughborough College which sits just across the road from the University. It is very well reputed and offers a wide range of vocational options including the sport related courses outlined below.


Loughborough University offers a wide range of courses across a broad spectrum of subjects from Business, Sciences, Engineering, European Studies, Computer Sciences, Sports Science, as well as Foundation Degree programmes in a variety of areas.

We are aware that a large number of students wish to study sport at Loughborough, and that for some students the entry requirements may well be outside their reach. As a result Loughborough College in partnership with Loughborough University has developed several Foundation Degree programmes in a range of sports related subjects.

These courses are validated by Loughborough University, although to apply to study these programmes, you will need to apply through UCAS to Loughborough College.

The specific courses include:-

Foundation Degree in Sports Science (C600)
Foundation Degree in Sports Science, Sports Development and Management (N222)
Foundation Degree in Sports Coaching (CX61)

PLEASE NOTE: N222 at the College does not transfer to N222/N281 at the University – but you can apply for CN62 at the University from this course.

The above courses are initially for a period of 2 years with two options for the final year of study, both of which
result in a degree level qualification.

1) Apply to the BSc In Applied Sports Science (Top-Up-Degree) at the College (C601)
2) Apply for 3rd year entry at Loughborough University, School of Sport, Exercise & Health Sciences

After two years you then have the option of 1) Applying to Loughborough College for the BSc (Hons) in Applied Sports Science known as the Top-Up Degree, you will need an average of 55% in your second year modules.
Alternatively you can apply to be considered for entry into Year 3 at Loughborough University, 2) you currently need to achieve at least 65% in Years 1 & 2 across your modules when applying to Loughborough University’s School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences for consideration to complete the Degree programme at the
University. Several students have successfully transferred to the University’s Degree programme.

At the end of your course of study at Loughborough College you will receive a recognised BSc (Hons)
qualification validated by Loughborough University.

For many years Loughborough College students have been integrated as part of the Loughborough Students
Union. Therefore students enrolled on the above courses are eligible to join the Athletic Union clubs and
currently these courses also allow students to represent the Loughborough University sports teams in BUCS competitions and at the World Student Games.

We have had several students who have represented the University teams from these courses, including:-

Nathan Douglas (Athletics), European Championships Silver Medal (Triple Jump) (2006), Commonwealth Games 4th Place (2010)
Samson Oni (Athletics), Commonwealth Games 4th Place (High Jump) (2010)
Lloyd Gumbs (Athletics), European U23 400m Hurdles Champion (2009).
Charlie Matthews (Rugby), England U20 Squad (2010).
Liam Tancock (Swimming), World Champion, 50m Backstroke (2009).
