Inspiring Minds is Loughborough University’s series of taster days for Year 12 students. It’s an excellent opportunity to learn more about the options available at university and how to get there. The events allow you to not only experience studying your chosen subject area at university level, but also to meet our current students and academics and discover university life!

At Inspiring Minds: Art and Design, attendees will choose subject taster sessions in the morning and then spend the afternoon exploring the Art and Design Degree show, where they can talk with current students and discover some of the amazing work produced here at Loughborough University.
