It is a lovely place to live and share your ideas, knowledge with other like minded students. It is a well furnished accommodation with superb location in the walking distance of river Thames and offers high quality living standards.

As a place of research, not many places in the world are as good as imperial, the campus, although small, has great facilities and some genuinely brilliant staff members. However, as a place of education, Imperial lacks in some of the most important areas; student satisfaction is a major problem, they can’t seem to do anything right when it comes to the likes of feedback, exam timetabling, workload balance, etc. (This is only regarding the Physics department, although I’ve heard similar stories from students from other courses, I can only speak for my own) I can say the support they give for mental health is actually not bad, they generally try to be accommodating of a lot of problems you may experience. The issue is the number of people experiencing mental health problems as a result of their course. There are people who enjoy their time at imperial, a lot of them, but I cannot say I have.

There was a lack of transparency in the MSc course. I am thankful we received our graded coursework to review, but we weren't allowed to see our marked exams, which I take issue with. (Part of learning is recognizing any gaps in knowledge. Transparency also protects.) On one coursework, I was docked points for missing material. In reviewing, I found an entire section of my work unchecked. When I brought this (& included material) to my instructor's attention, he conceded & returned points that made a rather significant difference to my grade. All this to say, it would have been helpful to have seen our marked exams and to have been able to check for any mistakes in grading. To be fair, there are some really good instructors in the CivEng department. To make the MSc a stronger educational programme, I advocate for more transparency. Lastly FWIW, I left with the impression that the programme was operating more like a business (lots of int'l funding).

You're literally paying for the 'Imperial' brand. Teaching and organisation are poor. Student support is abysmal. If you're a disabled student, don't expect Imperial to really care. They're just strict and stick to rules for the sake of them and palm you off to other people continuously if you've got any issues. Every process is very official, lengthy and drawn out - they don't even sort anything. My department also ignored the disability service's recommended adjustments, based on my disability. Putting someone with ADHD in a room with other students and an invigilator who was typing on his laptop right in front of me when it was recommended that I had a separate room because I have attention problems?! Common sense is obviously lacking. Imperial really do not care, they just care about the extra money coming in and lecturers getting those teaching hours ticked off. But hey, at least I can put Imperial on my CV!

Shortened my degree here because I absolutely hated it here. Overpriced everything, poor campus facilities always overcrowded, stressful city life, always over-worked with unachievable amounts of work, unable to provide for student’s needs when requested, unprofessional and bad university management overall. Will stress you out even after graduating: My degree certificate didn’t arrive on time, turned out it wasn’t even sent. Had to phone up 3 different telephone numbers and email 3 email addresses until I got a response. They are treating people’s important documents like toilet paper. Don’t go here if you value your mental health. The name value and career prospects are not worth it when you consider you will end up graduating a zombie. No comment on the clubs, have to sacrifice club time for work time A LOT. Also, what student union? Hardly engaging to the majority of students. The only good thing they have are cheap pints at the 568 bar.

I've been at Imperial for three years now and I'm in for a fourth. Imperial seems tough at the start but this is because we do not realise how productive we can be if we set our mind to it. I used to not like it but as the years have gone by and I compare with people from other unis I understand how my Imperial training has made me into a very competent and professional person which gives me great safety and ambition for the future. As a bonus, if you take it seriously and stay on top you can have quite a good social life even if many of your peers complain that they do not.

Pretty stressful environment, regardless of course. I did Biology and enjoyed it overall but the lack of support from the university (administrative or mental health-wise) was frustrating. The administrators for the different departments all seem equally incompetent in giving out information on time, if at all, and I've often reminded our coordinator to release certain information just hours before it's needed because they've forgotten? The clubs and societies are fantastic here, but the general atmosphere is oppressive and everyone seems perpetually stressed here. Rumours about low student satisfaction are true :)

Campus and some buildings are shockingly ugly for a supposedly world-class institution. Central Library gets quite busy and very hot. Our department lacked in student common room space and had no student cafe. The vending machines are always bloody broken so you can't get coffee when forced to work at 4am!! There is a wide array of clubs and societies. Only problem is that the sports ground is almost an hour coach away. Union has subsidised alcohol and those famous curly fries :) Careers service seems excellent, but I have never used it. They are open every day for advice and CV checkups. Wifi perfectly sufficient.

Studied computing. The curriculum overall is great and will turn you into a great engineer capable of commanding a salary well above the national average for graduates... but that comes at a cost of your sanity; the department is astonishingly incompetent at managing a degree programme. I do not have space to fully detail why here. Lecturers cannot come close to accurately estimating how long a particular assignment takes, leading to an insane workload. Some courses are so incompetently taught by a lecturer putting in such little effort you have to wonder why they even chose a career that involves teaching, especially in maths. I think they are overworked already with their other responsibilities. Some courses had badly copy-pasted slides that can be found online, and the lecturer seemed as if he had never even seen them before when trying to read them out. If you have ever seen lectures from top American unis, do not expect anywhere near that quality of teaching or effort put in.

Imperial is a great place with an immense amount of opportunity for every student, there are countless clubs and societies and it is refreshing to be around very clever people all the time. Nonetheless there are no humanities or arts students on campus which changes the vibe a bit.

Can’t really live on campus as it’s in south ken. On the flip side it’s a really nice area, compared to, say, queen mary’s. Apart from that it’s a really well funded uni and does it’s best to cater to every aspect of students’ lives.

This university is a sausage-fest with 3 counselors per thousands of students. Don't come here if you care about your mental, social and physical health. Doesn't actually open up as many job prospects as you may think. A bit too expensive to live in London too. Student union doesn't actually care about its students. Campus is tiny and has very expensive, yet tasteless food.

Imperial is without a doubt up there with the most boring universities in the country in terms of nightlife. Because it only offers STEM courses, there are no History, English or Art students who at other unis are more likely to be keen to go out all the time. As a result, if you come here you will most likely not have the typical uni experience unless you're very lucky and find a great group of mates. Go to UCL

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!
