As the world leader in sports research and sport-related study, we are keen to continually develop our partner links with industry for the benefit of sports research, teaching, enterprise and employability. This conference, which is unique to Loughborough and only available to Loughborough University students, aims to:

  • Bring together high calibre passionate sports-minded students with employers in the sports industry;
  • Develop the employability skills and knowledge of students;
  • Provide careers insight and advice to students;
  • Promote employment opportunities to students;
  • Build further links within the sports industry.

The conference will include our hugely successful annual careers fair, with employers from across the sports industry. The conference programme is currently being finalised.
