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.
