Open Days at Loughborough University
Open days are always the best way to experience a university properly, and Loughborough is pretty easy to reach as it's located right in the middle of the country and has good transport links. Additionally, because Loughborough's campus is all on a single-site, you can get round it all in one visit - fitting in a visit to a relevant department, a proper viewing of accommodation and a wider exploration of the campus.
Loughborough hold their open days twice a year, in June and September. On open days they provide detailed course information via information stands, all staffed, talks and tours. There'll be current students talking about their life at Loughborough and support services staff are also on hand to advise. You can visit and find out more about accommodation options in person, and be there to ask questions about student finance and bursaries. On top of that you get to see the world-class sports facilities that Loughborough has.
