The Loughborough College Sport Talent Academy is designed to support all athletes who compete in individual sports. We will support athletes with voluntary workshops on nutrition, hydration, finance, lifestyle management, scholarships as well as regular support meetings with lead tutors to balance their education and sporting commitments.

Loughborough College and Loughborough University work incredibly close to ensure learners can access Loughborough Sport Athletic Union's (AU Clubs). Loughborough College learners can join and access all Loughborough AU clubs if selected. There are costs involved to access certain AU clubs, that can be found on the sports individual pages. Loughborough College further education learners can not compete in BUCs fixtures due to age & course restrictions.

Learners can compete in all other sporting fixtures for the AU clubs if selected. Many Loughborough Sport AU clubs compete in regional and national leagues, such as Loughborough Cycling Academy & Loughborough Students Gymnastics Club

  • Badminton

We do support learners in competing in other competitions/tournaments that may arise during the calendar year. In the past we have had learners represent the college in Judo, Swimming, Boxing and many more sports.


Every year we take a group of learners to Mallorca for a four-week warm weather training camp. The camp allows learners to continue their education (lessons take place at our campus at the BEST Sports Centre) and experience warm weather training in a picturesque setting in Colònia Saint Jordi, Mallorca. There is an additional cost for the warm weather training camp. The sports on offer are as follows:

  • Triathlon
  • Swimming
  • Golf
  • X - Country
  • Tennis

Further information on costs and dates are released at the start of the academic year.
