    Hi I am current trying to decide between two uni's (Loughborough being one of them) and I have a few questions:
    -how much access is there to the workshops outside of lesson time, for example if I had a design I had thought of and wanted to make could I ?
    -how much cad is there and is it a large part of the course ?
    -is there more preference in making a model or cad for a project ?
    - are the industry links as good as they say they are, who have recent live projects been with ?
    - in the placement year do students get to go to large companies or only a few do, for example if I wanted to complete a year at dyson, Disney or Lego would that be possible ?
    - employment- are they mainly large companies or small and do students get approached whilst still in school or do they go and apply for jobs afterwards ?
    - are the lectures are really good?
    - is it possible to play in sport teams or are they dominated by national players ?
    Thanks so much to anymore who takes the time to answer these queries.
