Loughborough University location - http://www.lboro.ac.uk/about/find-us/
Loughborough is at the heart of England in the northern most part of the county of Leicestershire and being centrally placed is well served by road, rail and air. Main line road and rail networks link Loughborough directly with the rest of the country and the university is less than two miles from junction 23 of the M1 motorway. London is one-and-a-half hours away by train, Birmingham one hour and Manchester and Leeds around two hours and there are regular scheduled flights from UK, European and international destinations to East Midlands Airport, only 7 miles away.
Loughborough University - thanks to the vision of its founding father, Dr Herbert Schofield, Loughborough University has developed into one of the country’s leading universities, with a reputation for excellence in teaching and research, strong links with business and industry and unrivalled sporting achievement.
A public research university, it has been a university since 1966, but the institution dates back to 1909, when the then Loughborough Technical Institute began with a focus on skills and knowledge which would be directly applicable in the wider world.
Loughborough town - a busy market town with a vibrant history, is ideal for exploring the cities of Nottingham, Leicester and Derby and is close to attractions such as the Peak District, Sherwood Forest and the National Space Centre. Close by is Bradgate Park and the ruins of Bradgate House one of the earliest brick-built country houses in England and the birthplace and childhood home of Lady Jane Grey, Queen of England for Nine Days in 1553.
