My course, graphic communication and illustration, is really industry focused. We are always taught to design our projects like they are real briefs which pushes us. Only small thing more contact hours in third year would be ideal.

Great University! They are serious about your academics and are extremely supportive! The campus is beautiful with many sports facilities available. We have a free bus that takes us around campus. The hall of residence are all nice and clean! They are building more too!

Students union is a hive of activity. Boasting 3 clubs for nights out and a gorgeous piazza this is the best union around. With a cafe and munch bar allows students to grab a bite to eat whilst working there betweeen lectures.

This university went above and beyond all my expectations. The halls were amazing, the social life was fantastic and the people I met there will be my friends for life. My course was really broad, with a good mix of being able to select my own modules and set modules. Only issue was accommodation is expensive compared to a lot of what my other friends paid, and being a campus university there is little other choice.

One of the best universities. Very clean and the staff care about you and your well being. The students Union helps you whenever you need anything and provides plenty of support.

Great students life and education. The university has lecture capture, which really helps with reviewing. The sports facilities are top-notch and I have nothing to complain about other than the fact that the east side of campus is far less renovated than the west side.

The campus is feel kept, clean and safe. The sporting facilities are world class and mean there is an ethic on campus to be fit and healthy. My course has world leading lecturers and researchers that are passionate and engaged with the students. The union is busy and a great place for a night our. The careers centre is very helpful and has lots of people so that there is always someone to support you who has experience in your field. There are also carrels fairs throughout the year for different subjects so that you can speak to as many prospective employers as possible to give you the best chance of success. My experience has been very positive.

Campus is very big and has loads of great facilities. I really enjoy the free weekly sports sessions they run. The course is good but has too many 9am's for me personally. The careers services here are very good due to the many careers fairs and the career events they run.

The campus is lovely, with the oppertunities at this uni so plentiful I've done so much more than I thought I ever would. The halls are lovely with a real community feeling about them, and I've had some of the best weeks of my lives already doing this. I'm so glad I chose to do my degree here.

Loughborough University is has campus with a campus Bus which makes everything easy accessible and you can get from one end of campus to the other in 5 minutes instead of 30. Sadly this bus is not an electric bus which means that Loughborough University is producing quite a bit of CO2. Loughborough still has quite a bit to do on the sustainability front but they have a huge sector for charities. They have an entire office dedicated to charity work and they raise over £1,000,000 annually. The student union has been labeled one of the best in the UK and not without reason. During the day it is the perfect place to hold a meeting, get some lunch or just to meet up with friends. At night it turns into a club with at least 3 different dance floors. Every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday it is packed and you'll always be able to find a dj which you like.

I am an Engineering student at Loughborough and from my perspective the facilities for all the engineering departments are outstanding, the lecturers are very approachable and knowledgeable and I have never had an issue with any of the ones I have had within my 2 years of university. The nightlife at Loughborough is extremely diverse, there is an opportunity to go out every night of the week whether it is the union, which has 3 clubs, or in town. The union usually has a big appearance every few weeks, whether it be a DJ like Mistajam, RnB artists like B Young, or old school artists like Sean Kingston. As most people know the sport at Loughborough is extremely high class and competitive, any sport you want to play Loughborough has a team for it, even though some clubs are at an extrememly high standard and making the team is very difficult, IMS which is Loughborough's internal league, which Student Halls place against eachother, is a lower standard and anyone can go and play and enjoy the sport. Usually there are even BUCS scouts at the IMS games so if you are performing to club standard they will ask you to tryout for the BUCS team.

Very nice atmosphere of a community with it being a campus university. Everything close and feels safe.

University itself is great but my course (Graphic Communication & Illustration) is not so much, course is very poorly organised and certain tutors focus more on their ego than teaching.

Loughborough university is incredible! It provides a wide range of facilities in the campus such as gym, medical centre etc. International students feel like home as there are several events for them to socialise .

Lots of opportunistic due to the university's great network with hundreds of companies across the UK. The employment fairs are huge and there are constant employment talks for those interested. Facilities are amazing from sports to accademic. And the societies and athletics extracurricular available is extremely diverse. There's something for everyone at Loughborough university!

The gym called power base is really nice. Campus is the biggest in Europe and I really like it. There are a lot of sports facilities that I can use to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Student union has very cheap drinks which very much so appreciate.

I love Loughborough and wouldn't have chosen another university. I love a campus based university as there is a community feel to it, especially being an international student.

Loughborough is a fab uni!! Really great student atmosphere and the halls are similar to an American style campus, with inter-hall competitions and sports all year round! The town is only a short walk from the campus and has a great night life but also a good range of shops. Each cours has a impactful amount of contact hours and you are taught by some really great lecturers. The sports facilities are impeccable and overall it's an incredible university for all students!

Large campus everything is 5-10 minute walk, good facilities e.g. library, great sporting facilities. Course is well structure and they offer great support for your course as well as personal. Everyone is very friendly, you'll make friends everywhere and there's always something to get involved in.

The overall experience at this university as been incredible. The tone was set on moving in day where you are met by several very friendly fresher helpers. They make you feel very welcome and give you someone to talk to and find on a night out if you get lost. They were also very good and making my transition from home and school life to university life. Freshers in itself was a great experience, going out with all of your block-mates and the rest of your hall made making new friends very easy indeed. The events themselves were well run and highly enjoyable, even if my memory of it all is a bit hazy.
