Loughborough University London continues Loughborough's success as one of the country's top research-led universities; bringing benefit to local and international communities through applied research and sociocultural, interdisciplinary thinking.

At Loughborough University London, we are passionate about developing a pioneering and multi-disciplinary research portfolio. We want to create a vibrant, enthusiastic and forward-thinking research community in London, where world-leading academics and talented students work closely together to discover the latest, world-leading inventions.

To help us achieve our ambition, we are actively on the pursuit for new postgraduate research students, who wish to join a leading UK institution and benefit from our outstanding facilities and support networks.

Having seven specialised Institutes creates a great opportunity for working on multi-disciplinary research projects incorporating all of Loughborough University London's strengths. These include digital technologies, design innovation, creative media, sport business, diplomacy, international management and entrepreneurship.

Research has the ability to provide individuals, businesses and organisations with the right resources to transform an idea into a reality. What's more, any product that exists in a rapidly changing world requires research to continue and develop its success.

Students who choose to undertake a research programme with us will have the opportunity to work with top researchers and industry leaders, and gain first-hand experience of industry centered problem solving. Presentation of research findings at key national and international conferences will be an important part of your training. You will be actively encouraged to engage with research communities across the globe and you will become part of a talented research community within the University.
