Student life

Our community welcomes people from around the world and all backgrounds.

We provide dedicated support services to respond to challenges our students can face, including mental health and disability advice services, and year-round support for international students.

We also offer a range of scholarships for UK and international students, like the Imperial Bursary, scholarships for students of Black heritage and the IB Excellence Scholarship. Unlike loans, these don’t need to be paid back and can help cover tuition fees and living costs during your studies.

With more than 370 student-run societies and clubs, plus a huge range of extracurricular activities, there’s plenty of opportunity to have fun, learn new skills and meet lifelong friends.

What’s more, London and everything it has to offer is right on your doorstep. Being a student is a great way to explore the city and your student ID will help you get discounts on everything from transport to clothes, food and cultural experiences.

There are 32 boroughs in Greater London, stretching from the City of London and Westminster, to surrounding areas like Chelsea, Camden, Richmond, Hackney and Islington.

It’s big, but it’s easy to jump on a train, tube or bus to experience everything on offer – from food pop-ups to world famous music acts, free museums and West End shows.

Fantastically diverse and historical, with many industries and businesses based here to kickstart your career, London is one of the most desirable – if pricey – cities in the world.

Campus and facilities

Our main South Kensington Campus is a stone’s throw from Hyde Park and world-famous museums including the Science Museum, Natural History Museum and V&A. Most of our teaching happens here and it’s also home to our central library and sports centre, Ethos.

The White City Campus is our hub for innovation. It’s the base for cutting-edge facilities and pioneering research in healthcare, molecular sciences and bioengineering.

There are also our hospital campuses at Hammersmith, St Mary’s, the Royal Brompton, Chelsea and Westminster, Charing Cross and the North London Hospitals.

Just outside London is our Silwood Park Campus, a leading centre for ecology, evolution and conservation.

Our campuses are well-connected to public transport, including by Tube, bus and railway. There’s also a free shuttle bus that runs between our South Kensington, White City and Hammersmith campuses every half hour on weekdays.
