Venue

Loughborough University (East Midlands Campus)

Loughborough University (LU) prides itself in being a community lead campus in which staff and students can achieve their best in all aspects learning, teaching, research and enterprise activities. It has its roots in engineering as a Technical Institute established over 100 years ago. Its philosophy was then and still is ‘Learning by doing’ and ‘Healthy body = healthy mind’. LU is the best university in sports related science in the world. It supports training of the national teams: Rugby, cricket, swimming, tennis, badminton, netball, and many more. It’s home to many UK squads and stars: amongst them Lord Sebastian Coe, who championed the 2012 Olympic games in London where LU was the base of the UK team. Besides sports science, LU also delivers programs across engineering (civil and building, aero auto, electrical, mechanical, manufacturing, materials, etc.), arts and design, business and social science. LU is ranked 5th in the UK universities and 1st for student experience.

Loughborough

LU’s main campus is located at Loughborough which is a town of 60,000 in the midlands of the UK with easy international transport links – just over 1 hr by train (a 10 minute walk from the Eurostar, or a tube from the Heathrow Airport) from central London. There are also local international airports in the nearby cities of Nottingham and Birmingham. Loughborough is home to the world’s largest bell foundry that has cast bells for cathedrals across the world, including Great Paul, a 16 ton monster cast in 1881 for St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. But there are lots more to offer: beautiful wood land walks through what once would have connected us the stomping ground of robin hood in nearby Nottinghamshire; Bradgate House was the birth place of Lady Jane Grey, Queen for just 9 days in 1554; home to vibrant markets, dating back to the 1300’s, and an annual fair dating back to 1228; the River Soar and the Grand Union canal, the central water ways of England pass through and around the town; the UK’s only double track heritage railway – a section of the formidable Great Central railway; and just an hour away, the limestone dales, and gritstone edges of the peak district await exploration!
