Student Profiles


I love that our lectures are very engaging, and that our lecturers motivate us to develop our own understanding and critical thinking skills.


My favourite part of the masters’ programme would be the topics and modules covered, which make me feel as though I am where I am supposed to be! For me, the overall quality of the teaching plays a key role in keeping students interested and invested in what they study, and Loughborough fulfils that promise! They are always happy to help and give invaluable advice.

Our assignments are varied and include various skills that are common in the workplace (ranging from producing independent research skills, class presentations & consultancy reports). Secondly, our lectures cover content that is relevant to today’s work environment. The careers service is there to provide tailored career advice for a wide range of things, such as CV building, interview preparation and activities we can join at university). I have found these to be invaluable. Furthermore, Loughborough offers access to this careers service after you graduate.

I enjoy the different opportunities the university offers to students such as the career service, sports clubs, student roles and LSU Enterprises’ schemes all give a big employability boost! Compared to other universities, Loughborough university does a great job of promoting a healthy lifestyle and pushes its students to achieve their potential in a safe and encouraging environment. All in all, Loughborough has helped me grow as a person and has given me the tools I need to confidently enter the world of work!
