Loughborough University London was founded on Loughborough's award-winning reputation for research dynamism and creativity, as well as its enterprising outlook and unrivalled opportunities for students and alumni.

Loughborough University's history dates back to 1909 when the institute opened as a place to attend evening classes in technical subjects.

Now, over a century later, Loughborough University has flourished into a truly exceptional, internationally-renowned university, offering taught and research opportunities in the East Midlands and in East London.


Loughborough University London offers a collaborative, innovative and inspiring learning environment, bringing together world-leading scholars, dynamic organisations and creative individuals with the emerging talent and leaders of tomorrow.

You will learn from and network with pioneering thought-leaders from a range of organisations, multi-national companies to small entrepreneurial start-ups, the private and voluntary sectors, and the eminently creative local London community.


Loughborough University London continues Loughborough's success as one of the country's top research-led universities; bringing benefit to local and international communities through applied research and sociocultural, interdisciplinary thinking.
