Atmosphere, there is a great deal of societies, events, parties, conferences, seminars, QView more
The best thing about the university is the reputation. I think it really helped me stand out as a candidate when looking for a job. Also, the facilities were great – we had our own flight simulator in the aeronautics department for example. It’s also really nice to be around other students that are very good and passionate about the degree subject because it inspires and helps you get better when working with them. Clearly, there’s a lot of work to do and the level is really high, so you have to be very dedicated to the degree to do well, so your social life might be a bit compromised. But the only negative thing that surprised me is that with some professors there’s a lack of support, as they need to keep the degree competitive and so they can’t help you much. They’re also very busy with their own research so it’s hard to find the time to meet with them sometimes, and tutorial sessions can be rare.View more
Imperial College London has absolutely fulfilled all of my aspirations and demands. Having being taught by a first class quality teaching staff and having the opportunity to enjoy top of quality facilities my in-campus experience has been even better than I ever thought of.
In addition, I feel completely secure about my carrer in the future as I have gained many experiences and knowledge regarding my field of studies.
I can hardly think of anything I did not like while being there.View more
I joined Imperial College for my PhD on a studentship funded programme. Brilliant and research led with good resources to draw from. I enjoy the societies on offer but feel there is a slight social divide as students often live in different areas and difficult to organise good socialsView more

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).View more
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.View more
