Performance sport and scholarships

Our students are encouraged to compete at the highest levels and given additional support. We stand behind our athletes.

We have a unique system for academic support which allows committed performance student athletes the flexibility to balance the demands of competing at the highest level of your sport with your studies.

We have a number of sports with enhanced high performance programmes. If you are performing at national or international level and secure a place in one of our performance sport squads, you will receive high quality coaching, strength and conditioning, sports medicine support and a unique personal development programme.

For our most exceptional performance student athletes, we offer sports scholarships which include financial support and other benefits.

Represent your university

Our Athletic Union has 59 clubs and provides plenty of opportunities to represent Loughborough through competitions including the BUCS (British Universities and College Sport) Championship, which we've won consecutively for the past 40 years. With over 4,000 members and so many sports to choose from, there is something for everyone.
