Our expert academics, research and impact

Your learning experience is important to us and we are passionate about providing you with the highest quality of education, enhanced by world-leading academics, research and enterprise.

Learn from the best

Loughborough’s reputation attracts outstanding academics from around the world, many of whom are globally-respected leaders in their fields. This is so important to us, as it means we can offer our students opportunities to learn from passionate subject specialists who are at the forefront of current research.

Did you know that we have one member of academic staff for every 13.4 students at the University? Your teaching time matters to us, and we are committed to delivering the support you need to succeed.

Making an impact

We’re proud that 91% our research is considered to be ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally-excellent’ (REF 2021), not only because of the impact that has on our academic reputation but also because of the contribution we’re making to society and the rest of the world.

Queen’s Anniversary Prizes

To acknowledge the contributions our teaching, research and enterprise activities have made to society and the wider world, Loughborough has received seven Queen’s Anniversary Prizes for Higher and Further Education. These esteemed awards represent outstanding educational achievement in areas of service and benefit to the nation – from work in developing counties to improving social policy-related programmes for vulnerable families.

Opportunities for students

Joining a university with such a passion for meeting real-life challenges is incredibly rewarding and there’ll be many opportunities for you to help us pave the way with inspiring and cutting-edge projects.

Our vibrant research culture enhances our degree courses and underpins many of our collaborations with business, public and voluntary organisations that result in excellent placement and graduate opportunities.
