Imperial college business school has amazing facilities, amazing staff. I particularly like the business school cafe although it would be nice if they added a few more power sockets in the open space and heating for winter.
The course is really good too. Very interactive classes and highly diverse environment.
Excellent teaching methods, I am studying in a renewed program where we do not have any lectures, but instead, we do team-based learning sessions which is much more interactive and motivating. The lecturers are excellent. There is a lot of extracurricular activities from different societies, sports activities to additional courses in languages, social sciences etc.(imperial horizons).
I’ve only been attending Imperial College London for around 3 months now but it is by far one of the best universities I have attended, being it my 3rd. I’m doing my masters here and the education system is great, making use of interim assessment so the stress of exam burdens is almost none existent. As it is centered in London it is extremely accessible and the community surrounding it is truly unique. I completely encourage at least checking out the amazing campus.
