Begin your studies in January 2021

To provide maximum flexibility for as many students as possible, we are also offering a January 2021 start for a number of master's programmes in Loughborough and in London.

Master's programmes starting in January 2021 will run for 13 months, ending in February 2022. In order for a January start to be made possible, we may be required to make some adjustments to the ordering of modules for these programmes. Revised programme specifications for courses starting in January 2021 can be found here.
