Coaching sessions provide opportunities to support students in an objective and non-judgemental way, explore their goals and enable them to reach their full potential. This includes:

  • Careers Coaching: to explore career options, graduate opportunities and progress career planning.
  • Academic Success Coaching: to facilitate goal setting and overcoming challenges to enhance academic performance and outcomes.
  • Interview Coaching: to practise and improve interview technique, provide feedback and build confidence.

As well as hosting one of the largest university careers fairs in the UK, we hold sector-specific events where students can network with employers and Loughborough alumni to help form valuable industry connections and secure high-quality placements and graduate roles.

Passionate about supporting all our students, we also offer tailored support and resources for international students, students with disabilities and those from diverse backgrounds.

Loughborough students and graduates are highly sought after and Loughborough students achieve some of the highest quality destinations in the UK, with 85.4% of our 2020 first degree UK graduates in graduate level work or higher level study within 15 months of graduating.

Our support continues after graduation and is also available to University staff.
