The below information has been taken from the Loughborough University website which can be accessed here

Inspiring Minds is Loughborough University’s series of taster days for Year 12 students. It’s an excellent opportunity to learn more about the options available at university and how to get there. The events allow you to not only experience studying your chosen subject area at university level, but also to meet our current students and academics and discover university life!

At Inspiring Minds: STEM, attendees can choose up to four sessions from our STEM-related subjects and explore our campus through tours of our STEM departments.
Sessions providing information, advice and guidance on university applications and student finance from our award-winning School and College Liaison team will also be available, along with a talk from our award-winning Careers Network on where a career in STEM could take you.

Individual students, as well as school and college groups, are welcome to attend.
