Loughborough University

The Fulbright Loughborough University Award covers a 3-12 month project for researching, lecturing or teaching in or across any research-active departments at the university.

Throughout its history, Loughborough University has built upon its distinctive characteristics. Today it is one of the UK's leading universities, with a reputation for excellence in teaching and research, strong links with business and industry and unrivalled sporting achievement. We have two vibrant campuses, our 440-acre single-site Loughborough campus, in the heart of the Midlands, and our inspiring postgraduate London campus, based in the former press and broadcast centres at the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. 

Loughborough has been awarded 5 stars for research as part of the QS Stars University Ratings 2024. According to the latest REF (2021), 91% of Loughborough University’s research is now ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally-excellent’. 

The university is making substantial investments to further increase its research profile, and our strategic research framework comprises three broad interdisciplinary areas that address the complex challenges of our current times:  

  • Sport, health and wellbeing 
  • Climate change and net zero 
  • Vibrant and inclusive communities 

We warmly welcome applications for the Fulbright Loughborough University Award from all disciplines, and are particularly keen to attract scholars working in fields that align with one or more of our strategic themes. All Loughborough University Fulbright Scholars will become Fellows of our Institute of Advanced Studies, ensuring that they will have maximum visibility and be fully integrated into our vibrant research communities across our campuses.
