The following programmes will be running in the forthcoming academic year, offering maximum flexibility in light of the current global pandemic:

*Please note that our full time Loughborough based courses are being delivered online as well as on campus during Semester 1, enabling students to join us in person when able to do so in the event that attendance is impacted by the Global pandemic. This will allow students to engage remotely with lecturers/ others in class and interact with the Loughborough community virtually before travelling to continue studies face to face when able to do so.
