Studied here for the Conservation Science MSc degree in the Silwood Campus. The campus itself is isolated from the main Kensington campus and throughout the year course there were no efforts made by staff to aid students who wanted to travel there. The main director for our course was condescending and always gave misleading information that always seemed to contradict the course guidebook as well as the other director. The facilities were decent but I've heard that the accommodation facilities (ie washing machines/hobs) were often breaking down and needing maintenance. Course content was good and enjoyable but it could do with better coordination and organisation. Which leads to the topic of administration. The admin team was, to be honest, quite incompetent at times. Bus schedules were sometimes not on time and causing the students to wait up to 40 minutes. Requests made by email were not always followed and required students to visit the office in person.
I’m not into the social aspect of university life so so can’t really comment on it but I love my course, it’s challenging but the lecturers are fantastic and we have access to some really good resources. 1st year accommodation is pretty great too, in comparison to other unis I’d say you’d enjoy your 1st year here more if you’re slightly introverted but that’s just my opinion.
I've found all my lecturers to be wonderful and our specific education Office listens to our problems and gives us help if we need it. However, the students we've elected into the union don't get as much as control in important matters to the students as they should. This has resulted in threats of closure of important students outlets, especially Reynolds bar which is the only imperial outlet for medical students at Charing Cross, and a lack of respect regarding pay and food on shift for student workers like myself at the Union bar and shop.
Honestly, the university itself seems amazing in principle, hence why people fight to get there! And the courses are actually really interesting. But in terms of stress, workload and general student happiness, I think many people would agree it’s one of the worst universities out there...
Located in the heart of London, this bustling University provides top-class education from the leaders of its fields. Imperial College, London always strives to be student centred because they strongly believe that students' views matter. The campus in South Kensington is large and equipped with several cafes and bars. The majority of lectures are held here, except if you're a medic which means you will also be in Reynolds Building, Charing Cross Hospital. The University provides a lot of help and academic resources and useful tips and guidance on revision. The sessions are fun, engaging, thought-provoking and challenging. The course has also been structured so modules studied simultaneously accompany each other! The student union hold a lot of events as well as the clubs and societies. Imperial College has the most clubs and societies than any other university in the world!
Brilliant university where you're being taught by world leaders in their fields. Too bad the workload is horrendous and the stress is ridiculous forcing you to hate a subject you once loved. Reducing the workload would skyrocket student satisfaction but until that happens we're gonna be dropping like flies.
Overall an excellent university with plenty of opportunities around. If you are willing to choose to go above the minimum it is very enjoyable. Only those who are used to having everything handed to them, born with their silver spoons, would be disappointed by Imperial, as they make everyone work equally.
I could not think of a better place to be spending 6 years of my life, clubs and societies to cater for anyone's needs. A centre academic excellence and quality teaching on an international level, and you can really tell that the courses are well designed and well taught. Some of the facilities are slightly outdated, but we make the most of them!
