Student Experience

Every student’s university experience is different, no matter what their background is Higher Education will be able to offer a host of exciting opportunities and experiences to complement their academic studies.

A university’s Student Union will host a huge variety of clubs, sports team and societies – ranging from the more popular and mainstream hobbies such as football, theatre and computer games to the slightly more obscure and unusual including tuxedo swing, hot air ballooning and wakeboarding.

Degree courses can vary significantly in the ways in which they are taught and assessed and the contact hours. Some subject areas involve several hours a week dedicated to lab and workshop time, others require extensive independent study and self-directed learning. Finding out the format and structure of a course in advance can help a student to decide if it really is the right choice for them.

We asked a selection of undergraduate students to share their experiences with us, their answers showcase just some of the many elements involved in the Loughborough Experience and how each and every students experience is truly unique.
