16 Physics & astronomy reviews at Imperial College London


Student Review: 3 /5

Physics, MSci Hons

By member761183 On 21st July 21

Imperial Physics is a very “love-hate” course. On one hand, the student body generally loves physics, we wouldn’t have taken it if we didn’t, but the majority of us don’t enjoy the way imperial go about teaching it. Feedback is poor, it takes months to get problem sheets and exams results back. They also won’t give you your exam transcript back at all, just your raw mark, so there’s no way to see how you can improve. The work load is high, very high, don’t expect much spare time if you want to keep up. Lectures as a whole a really good, taught by real life geniuses gets you the best explanations for difficult topics but can also lead to some confusing maths.

because of covid-19 again, we cannot go to campus to take the course. So the experience is a little bit worse than normal. But the course content is great

The course itself is really varied and interesting and although some of the lecturers do assume a lot of knowledge or brush over complicated points, for the most part, the teaching guides you along.
