Loughborough University has a long tradition and is world renowned for its role in the development of sporting excellence. It is a key site for the new English Institute of Sport - and the ECB's National Academy.
The MCCU allows additional support to be invested in a squad of elite young cricketers, who benefit from Loughborough's expertise and provision for the development of sports performance.
The Cricket-specific facilities and services are reinforced by access to Loughborough's wider provision of high-performance sport support services, including fitness testing and development, technical analysis of skill acquisition, physiological and biomechanical analysis, sports nutrition, sports psychology, and sports medicine services.
Widely regarded as the UK's premier academic institution for teaching, research and development within Sport, Loughborough University also has an envied reputation for education and research in a wide range of other arts and humanities, social science and science disciplines, and particularly for Engineering and Technology.
