Alice

Industrial Design

I love studying at Loughborough University, not only because of the large campus which has everything you would need in it, but also because of the supportive environment.  My favourite thing about my course is the variety of skills we learn: from CAD to prototyping and sketching, no day is the same. The range of projects we work on gives us the opportunity to develop our skills and push our limits to keep improving, year on year. I also enjoy getting involved with extracurricular activities like language societies, MyLifestyle sports classes and the Design Society, which are great for meeting other like-minded people, and to relax when not working.

Fine art (second year)

Loughborough has given me so many new opportunities, from developing my artistic practice with access to printing, painting, woodwork, photography, ceramics, and metal workshops. As well as being able to produce my work in my own studio space surrounded by an exciting creative environment, where I can talk to experienced technicians about my work.

I have also had the opportunity to try new sports, attending the lacrosse taster session, which for a complete beginner I found everyone so helpful and welcoming and it encouraged me to join the beginner’s team this year.

 

Jemimah

Art Foundation

I have been at Loughborough for over two years now and I have loved every moment. The sense of community on campus is what I love most about Loughborough. There are endless opportunities which you can get involved with and there really is something for everyone! I have been involved with RAG raids, the colour dash 5K run and I am now a member of the lacrosse team which has been a really good fun way to keep fit alongside University work. 

I came to Loughborough to study an Art Foundation course; I was so amazed with the facilities and valuable experiences available to you at Loughborough that I decided to stay. The foundation course enabled me to really understand my strengths and weaknesses which led me to study Textiles: Innovation & Design.

I am very grateful to have been able to study here at Loughborough, I have made lifelong friendships, incredible memories which I will cherish forever and unforgettable experiences along the way.

When deciding where to study, Loughborough stood out to me from the start. The vast open campus offers so many opportunities, and the community spirit makes settling in very easy. Loughborough is close to my hometown, so I chose to commute to university instead of living on campus. This has given me a different university experience to most of my friends but I still have had plenty of opportunities to get involved in activities. I work on campus as a student ambassador and I am also a course representative in the Design School which keeps me busy outside of timetable. My course is very engaging, and I have developed so many design skills here at Loughborough. From practical workshop sessions to seminars and lectures, no two days are the same in the Design School. 

Samantha

Fine Art

After living in Loughborough for 4 years I can honestly say that the university provides so many different opportunities. Over the years I have had the opportunity to join societies such as lacrosse, life drawing and photography.  

The ‘Loughborough bubble’ is absolutely a real thing, everyone is so friendly and the community is like no other. I have made so many memories and friends for life here! Loughborough has given me so many opportunities and skills. As well as my course which has allowed me to pursue my interest in photography! I love Loughborough and will always be grateful I came here!
