    A good experience

    Imperial is a very historic university located in the centre of London. Its facilities are great and there are a lot of extracurricular activities. The teaching is overall very good, however th thing I found was most lacking was the student support.

    ICSM Review

    As a student still enrolled at Imperial School of Medicine, I can’t speak for the quality of teaching and level of support available in later clinical years, but I am very happy with the experience I’ve had so far.

    The quality of material taught and the clarity of expression of our lecturers is usually very good – they are happy to take questions and are keen to help out with tricky concepts. Most of the electronic platforms we use to access lectures and other e-learning tools are relatively well designed, but the faculty is continually developing new methods of teaching, so the software frequently misbehaves and makes reaching some materials tricky.

    The incorporation of patient contact and other clinical elements from the beginning of the course I found very helpful, and it added some nice variation in the first two theoretical years. The attention given to students on clinical attachments seems to vary greatly between sites from what I’ve heard, but I was very happy with the supervision and guidance I was given during my placements.

    As a retake student, I also had a closer contact than most with the pastoral support services, particularly our senior tutor who supported me and checked up on my progress throughout the whole process – both academically and mentally.

    I also think that Imperial provides everyone with a lot of opportunities to get involved with research and extracurricular activities, both academic and purely recreational. We had a three week research placement as part of our assessment this year and I’m also doing a summer research project (UROP) which has been encouraged by our tutor and faculty staff, allowing me to gain more experience in the field prior to my intercalated BSc.

    Overall I am very happy to be able to study at Imperial and I hope that this positive experience will carry on over my entire six years here.

    Excellency and breakthrough innovation

    Imperial College London is known for its excellent lectures and breakthrough research work. The college’s learning environment motivates the students to stay focused and disciplined for a long period of time. The lecturers are very supportive and helpful to the students and it is easy to approach them when we need some guidance.

    Incredible people, incredible course

    Without wanting to sound cliché, Imperial has been the best decision I’ve made in my academic life.
    I can’t speak for the entire university but the Medical School is one-of-a-kind: the medics are brilliantly talented and incredibly proactive; the professors are approachable and fun; the opportunities we are given are second-to-none (I went to Nepal as part of a research project with the university – the only university in the UK that offers this!).
    The MBBS course eases you into a life of hard work whilst still allowing you to explore your hobbies and experience university life as if you weren’t studying a 6 year degree.
    If you’re considering applying to Imperial, definitely do it.

    World class education at Imperial

    It is a great university providing excellent teaching facilities. It is also a place for one to learn from one’s peers because everyone is very smart and intellectually challenged. It has a vibrant and international community. However, if you are not motivated by your course and you are not willing to work hard, then probably Imperial is not the right place. One should be willing to stay in the library from 8 till quite late. Sometimes, it can get very frustrating and challenging. One needs to sacrifice certain things in social life when joining Imperial.

    Great university with very intense courses

    Imperial College is a great university with amazing courses in STEM. It’s got a really good student environment for things outside of education. It’s a place that can give you loads of opportunities that you could benefit from in the future, career wise, so it’s something to take advantage of during your time there. I would definitely recommend the university to anyone wanting to study a highly rated intense STEM course.

    Not as bad as people make it out to be.

    Imperial mainly gets shit for bad mental health, but they do have quite a lot of facilities to help with this imo. The on campus food and sports facilities could use some work too. The union is also a bit shitty and profit driven, but when worst comes to worst they compromise well enough. Overall it’s a fun place and you learn a lot – I don’t regret attending.

    International and fun university

    Imperial college has been a very fun and exciting experience for me as the social life is amazing and I have been able to meet lots of amazing people with not only the same passion but that are fun to be around and let’s be honest, drink around. My time here has been amazing mainly due to the amazing societies that exist in the university.

    The opportunities available at the university!

    Imperial has been the best decision I’ve made. Imperial provides so many opportunities both academically in terms of subsidised research projects abroad and on the social side with societies. People here are friendly and there are people that become friends that you connect so well with and support you throughout. There is no other university I’d rather be at, there’s a perfect balance of life and work.
