My university experience has been excellent despite initially being very nervous about meeting new people etc as well as living away from home. The uni offers really good support services as well as the accommodation service which will help with properties both on and off campus. samcheema

"As an engineering student, I've had my fair share of work over my 3 years at Loughborough so far yet have managed to be sociable, make loads of friends and take on some new sports and societies i'd never tried before. Everyone is welcoming at Loughborough and theres nowhere i'd rather have gone now that i've had a chance to visit old friends at other universities." Authentic
"It really prepares you for what working as an engineer is like in the real world. It's based on both on theory and largely on hands on skill." smariah
