    Imperial College London - MEng Chemical Engineering

    Imperial provides a great foundation for you to launch your future career. The university makes a lot of effort to ensure students gain adequate theoretical knowledge, before learning how to deploy it effectively in a range of group projects and labs. The material is challenging, engaging, but most importantly; it is deeply interesting.

    One thing that sets Imperial apart from other British universities is their supportive attitude towards students who wish to start a business. You can easily book a consultation in the Enterprise lab to get advice, and can even pick up mentors to guide you further in your journey. We even have our own start-up competition, which this year had a prize pool of £80,000.

    Lastly, Imperial is situated in the midst of one of the greatest cities in the world: London. There’s never a shortage of things to do. Even within a ten minute walk of Imperial you have great attractions such as Hyde Park, the Natural History Museum and the Royal Albert Hall (where Imperial’s graduation ceremony is held). Club nights out are quite simply better than any of your friends’ at other unis, thanks to the plethora of options available.

    Friendly and hardworking uni environment with great prospects.

    This university is very much what you make of it. If you put in a lot of effort to put yourself out there and work hard, you will enjoy a lot of the events . However, even if you do not do this you still ensure that you will do well in the future by doing well in your chosen course. This is a very STEM oriented uni and thus the environment will be very hard working and faster paced at times, but in your down time there are plenty of activities and clubs to take part in.

    Great university with enthusiastic professors in the centre of London

    Imperial is a university that puts emphasis not only on students’ acquiring of theoretical knowledge, but also focuses on their future careers, having a lot of career fairs and mailing lists as well as careers service on campus. Most professors in my department are truly enthusiastic about the subjects they teach and are very open to all questions, responding to emails quite quickly and answering questions after the lectures. What I liked is that we had a lot of group projects and lab work outside of the lectures, which allowed us to learn how to solve real-life engineering problems. The student-department communication is usually quite good, most issues are solved with the professors by student representatives and I feel like they usually really try to take our opinion into consideration and solve the problems we have whenever that is possible.
    Imperial is located in South Kensington, in zone 1 of London, which means that it is right next to some of London’s big tourist attractions: the Museums, Royal Albert Hall or Hyde Park.
    My overall feeling about this place is that Imperial is definitely a challenging university and you should be ready for a lot of work, but this means you will find a lot of inspiring and original people in here, and experience cultures from all over the world, which is, in my opinion, a fascinating experience.

    Difficult but worth it

    Imperial is a great university for STEM students. For each department there are several useful facilities for students to use should they need them, such as computer labs, workshops and research facilities should they need and have it granted for use. Additionally, the library has an incredible number of resources at your disposal for any field you’re interested in, and a dedicated staff that can help you locate what you are looking for. Aside from academics, the university has space for playing music, they’re own cheaper and well-equiped gym for students, and a full building dedicated for union operations and activities. The university is also located in South Kensington so you can easily enjoy museums next door, and find almost everything within 30 minutes of travel ranging from all cuisines. cultural hotspots, parks, leisure locations and landmarks. College accommodation is also within this range, meaning the commutes won’t be too dreadful. Going back to academics, you receive an education from those who are leading the research field in their disciplines and even write the textbooks in some cases. This gives you great insight into the industry, research, academics and a better dive into concepts that we don’t fully understand. For the courses themselves, it depends on what you study, but it is definitely rewarding to go through the workload and stress if you know you are studying is what you want to be doing, especially when Imperial can help you connect with many bright individuals and innovators that you’re path after university seems even more clear once you’re done. Lastly, the world has no limiting horizons anymore since you meet people from all across the world that you will be connected to every continent as colleagues or even friends.

    Very challenging, but if you are motivated you will be able to get through it

    It should be expected that the courses in this uni is challenging, but it is also more than doable if you are self-motivated enough and have decent time management. The quality of accommodation can vary depending on which hall you are in, but overall my impression of them is good. Also, being located in central London makes everything very convenient and the night life is amazing. Moreover Imperial offers a lot of help with careers and entrepreneurship, more so than I’ve seen of other unis.

    Challenging yet Rewarding!

    I have highly appreciated my time spent at Imperial College London thus far, studying Mathematics for this first year has been an enriching experience. Imperial’s atmosphere boasts a strong balance between a relaxed and intense working environment, in order to bring the best out of every student. This is perhaps most shown through how much freedom each student has to complete their work on time, to be able to work at their own pace, yet the standard of work is still maintained since sufficient help and support for exam preparation is given to students throughout the year. The facilities are incredible, for example the Imperial library of 5 floors is more than enough to accommodate all students’ needs for individual studying. Panopto is also used as a means of lecture recording across many subjects, allowing students to recap on learned material, which comes as a great aid to students who have fallen behind on lectures. My favourite part of Imperial has to be the sheer number of clubs, societies and projects available for students to take part in, as made aware during Fresher’s Fair – my personal highlight being taking part in EMW 2019 for Imperial’s Indian Society. I would highly recommend Imperial to any student looking to study a STEM course, especially Maths, since it really does allow you to reach your full potential.

    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.
