School Description

Founded as a small technical institute in 1909; it wasn’t until 1966 that Loughborough was awarded its Charter and hence achieved the status of the country’s first technological university. At the time the University was called, Loughborough University of Technology; but later in 1996, was renamed Loughborough University.

Today, Loughborough is regarded as 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.

Because of Loughborough’s rich tradition and achievements in sport it established a Hall of Fame which recognizes alumni who have attained considerable achievement in sports – both as coaches and performers. It’s most recent inductees are Paula Radcliffe, who has many accolades in distance running to her name and Frank Dick who held the prestigious title of British Athletics Federation’s Director of Coaching and who remains one of the leading sports coaches and coach mentors in the world.
