Exceptional location right in the heart of London, spread across multiple campuses eg. St Mary’s Hospital, South Kensington and Charing Cross Campus. This makes everyday different and exciting as there are lectures in different places. The course is very well structured with professors that hold regular last minute tutorials and sessions for students to learn and actually engage with the material. As expected, people here can be quite competitive however there are plenty of social opportunities with the UK’s largest ever fresher’s fayre hosted every year.View more
The course was world-class. It was taught by industry experts who are world-renowned. In the first and second year you may not be learning the most up to date topics yet, but it is important to build up the base of your knowledge so you can properly learn about the newest and most state of the art topics in the field. I found the course full of challenging yet rewarding coursework. You will spend a lot of time in labs working but it is well worth it. The graduates are highly desired and will almost guarantee you a job.View more

Imperial is located in South Kensington, one of the nicest locations in London. The accommodation in the southside and eastside while quite pricey but is very nice. Every Tuesday there is a farmer market on campus for us to enjoy. Being a student at Imperial is quite comfortable.
The professors are world-class, the lectures are engaging. They know what they are talking about and they are all engaging in first-class research. This university is quite a research-heavy institute so the students learn about the newest trends in their academic field.
The course was very practical, we had a lot of coursework was relevant to the degree. This means the graduates are highly desired after graduation.
There isn’t much of a work/life balance. They throw a lot of work at you and you barely have enough time to finish all of it.
I do know people in different courses have a better work schedule, but not in computing.View more

Excellent education and teaching, a lot of extra curricular activities that you can take part in, including Tamil society, where I have taken part in dance events such as Mega Maalai. Really enjoy the social side but the academics are challenging and can be a heavy work loadView more
