Loughborough University has today been named as the number 1 University in the World for Sports Subjects, according to the QS World Rankings.

This is the 5th year in a row for the University to be given the title and reflects the vast facilities and programmes available on the Midlands Campus.

“With perfect scores among academics and employers alike, Loughborough’s education in Sports-related Subjects receives the seal of approval for both its academic standards and its graduate employees. We also find clear strengths in other areas, including outstanding offerings for Art & Design, Mechanical Engineering, and Communication & Media. After a challenging year for all in the sector, we congratulate all at Loughborough for their efforts to cultivate outstanding educational programs.”
