Loughborough University is a public research university in the market town of Loughborough, Leicestershire, England. It has been a university since 1966, but it dates back to 1909 when Loughborough Technical Institute started with a focus on skills directly applicable in the wider world.
In March 2013, the university declared it had bought the former broadcast center at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park as a second campus. It belonged to the 1994 Group of smaller research universities until the group disbanded in November 2013.
Loughborough University’s annual income for 2020–2021 was £308.9 million, of which £35.5 million was from research grants and contracts. The university is in the top 7 in every UK university league table and top in its region.
However, the university was named University of the Year in 2019 by The Times. In 2020, Loughborough University was awarded the University of the Year by the WhatUni Student Choice Awards (WUSCAs).
Moreover, this was decided by over 41,000 student reviews from more than 150 higher education institutions. Loughborough University traces its roots back to 1909 when a Technical Institute was established in the town center.
Furthermore, there followed a period of rapid expansion, during which it was renamed Loughborough College and the development of the present campus began.
In the early years, efforts were made to simulate the environment of an Oxbridge college (e.g. students wore gowns to lectures) whilst maintaining a strong practical corrective to academic learning.
Furthermore, during World War I, it served as an “instructional factory”, training workers for the munitions industry.
