Loughborough University is one of the UK's leading centres of excellence for teaching Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

The sporting community has now grown to encompass not just students but also elite athletes, national governing bodies, the local community and of course in 2012 the official preparation camp for TEAM GB ahead of the Olympic Games.
Loughborough University holds one of the best students men’s rugby teams in the UK, with over 70 of their players having made it to an international level and 17 making it to The Lions. In 2015, Loughborough opened its second campus on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London; resulting in a diversified and expanded higher education designed to advance students’ professional development.
“As an international STEM recruitment group and a highly driven performance-business, we were looking for a university whose values and results mirrored our own as well as our passion for success. What attracted us to Loughborough was the well-known international performance heritage synonymous with the University, and we couldn’t be more excited about the partnership and season to come.” commented Phaidon International’s Marketing Executive, Victoria Rush.
