Inspiring Minds is Loughborough University's series of academic taster days for post-16 students. Students will have the opportunity to come to campus and experience university lectures, discovering what it would like to study their chosen subject at university level.

Our subject areas have been split into separate events. More information and detail for each event will be available via the links above when bookings open in December 2023.

These events offer students the chance to delve deeper into their chosen subject area through lectures and workshops led by our academic staff, as well as facility tours and the chance to meet current students. They help students explore their higher education options, gain insight into university-level study, and make informed decisions about their future studies. The sessions also cover practical aspects like UCAS applications, personal statements, and student finance. Attending these events can enhance a student's personal statement for university applications. Both individual students and school groups are welcome to attend, and there is no attendance fee.

Please note that the primary purpose of these events is not to provide detailed information on the specific content of our degree courses, but to allow students the opportunity to experience university level study through a range of undergraduate level taster sessions. Course information can be found using our online prospectus and brochures will be provided to take away with this information.
