Inspiring Minds: Social Sciences & Humanities

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.

This event is for those students interested in studying subjects from across the social sciences and humanities 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.

Some of the comments received last year include:

"I was a bit unsure if I definitely wanted to study sociology, but now I definitely do. Dr Iris was so enthusiastic and really captivating"

"The event has opened my mind to the wide range of things you can do whilst at university"

"This event gave me a feel of the lectures I may potentially be studying. The lecturers were all very friendly and helpful. A lot of information was provided to make my choice easier"

"I have learned many new and interesting things which have provided me with knowledge I can use in the future"

Please see below for the previous event timetable, which outlines the sessions that are typically avaialble for students.
