Loughborough University has had an international reputation in the information science field for more than 40 years. The University is ranked as the top institution in the UK to study Library and Information Management (Times Good University Guide 2013). Excellence in teaching and research is also acknowledged by the award from the QAA of 24/24 in the most recent teaching quality assessment and the Research Assessment Exercise panel judgement that 85% of information science research is at an international level. The staff are committed to being at the leading edge of the discipline and to providing a first class learning and teaching experience for all students.
