Inspiring Minds: Art & Design

What is Inspiring Minds?

Our Inspiring Minds taster days are an excellent opportunity for Year 12 students to learn more about the options available to them at university. The events aim to enhance current studies and get students thinking about their subjects from a new perspective through a range of undergraduate level taster sessions delivered by our academic staff and students.

Students can also learn more about university applications and student life through informative sessions covering topics such as Personal Statements and Student Finance, as well as the opportunity to take a tour of our stunning single-site campus with our current students.

What is more, these events look great on a student's personal statement, helping them to stand out as part of the university application process.

The events are free of charge (excluding the cost of travel to Loughborough campus) and lunch is provided for students.

Inspiring Minds: Art & Design

Friday 12th June 2020 | Loughborough Campus

This event is for those students interested in studying an art or design related subject at university.

Students will be able to attend their choice of talks and workshops, receive university application guidance and take a tour of our outstanding campus. There is also the opportunity to visit our annual degree shows, showcasing the inspiring and diverse array of work produced by our final year students.

Some of the feedback received from last year's event includes:

"I'm now very interested in studying here, I really enjoyed the lectures and workshops and now have a better idea of the course and areas I want to study"

"The event made me excited for university - it has inspired me to come to Loughborough and made me want to come to university even more!"

"The afternoon tour of the Design Degree Show was amazing, leaving our son totally passionate about his future direction. He was really inspired, whilst my husband and I were immensely impressed with the Design Show and everyone involved should be very proud"

Please see below for the previous year's event timetable, which outlines the typical session choices available at this event.
