Overall an excellent experience! During my time at Imperial, I was able to learn cutting edge science from world-leading experts, all while meeting amazing people from all walks of life. At times the workload was intense, but I felt that with the support of my friends and academic staff, this could be suitably managed. Imperial also has a reputation for being boring with no social life; however, I was able to join a range of different clubs and societies and enjoy the nightlife of London all while balancing my studies. The experience you get from Imperial is very much what you make it and the opportunities you want to get out of the university and London!View more
Being at the heart of London, ICL not only offers access to world-class facilities but provides students with many opportunities that they may not be afforded elsewhere. There are countless societies run by the diverse student body and there is an irrefutable sense of drive and passion for both the academic and social aspects of university life from both students and lecturers alike.View more

I have loved my time at Imperial so far. I have met so many great people from all over the world and made many great memories. My course is very interesting and I believe it will prepare me well for a career in biomedical research.View more
Imperial College provides lots of support and opportunities to STEM students. My course, medical biosciences implemented a flip-classroom learning system, allowed us to develop self-discipline, the curiosity and eager to learn. I have enjoyed the weekly laboratory session, where we were given real-life challenging problems to solve with a one-year research project. I really appreciated this opportunity, as there are not many universities offering advanced lab-work at bachelor level. Imperial College is a great university to pursue your research career, at the same time they also have a well-established business school for students to pursue their career in STEM-business related industries.View more
Imperial is a great university with great career prospects and a wonderful campus. I would definitely recommend people to apply to Imperial College. For me, the course was expected and the information taught was detailed and well outlined. Personally, I love the lab sessions most as we had the opportunity to get a lot of hands-on experience and get to take the initiative to design experiments and investigations on our own. Teaching staff at Imperial are also very friendly and patient so I would definitely encourage motivated and inspired students to come to Imperial and experience university life to its fullest.View more
The amazing cohort of academics combined with the campus and location make ICL a great university choice. The standard of education is very modern and ever changing, and the university is really made to feel like a home rather than just a school. No matter where I go on in life, I’ll be glad I was able to attend ICL.View more

One thing about Imperial College London that really stands out is the importance they give to acquiring a wide range of both hard and soft skills. They don’t only focus on gaining lab-based skills for example. They also focus on developing interpersonal skills, communication skills, creativity and confidence.View more
