    So on Wednesday I'm having a campus tour of Imperial College because I never got the chance to look around when I went for my interview (I was late ).

    The tour lasts an hour and my train isn't until half past six so I was wondering what else I should do whilst I'm in South Kensington? What particular attractions should I see? I'll have around 4 hours of free time whilst I'm there, so I figured I'll get something to eat and then explore
    I don't know London too well, but if it's sunny you could go to Hyde Park (5 minutes away from the South Kensington Campus.) The Science Museum is also really close to the campus. You could also get the tube and go to Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Trafalgar Square, Houses of Parliament, Oxford St. etc. I don't think it takes that long on the tube; and there'll be plenty of places there where you can grab something to eat



    Did anyone else get an invite to the Imperial Festival? It looks pretty good :yep:

    Right next to Imperial college you have the V&A museum, the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum. You have also got Hyde Park only a few minutes away. There are loads of places in the area to get food. You won't find it hard to kill 4 hours. .

    Heyy! Thanks for the reply.

    Yeah, I sorted it out with Sheffield. It's sort of possible, and apparently it actually happens with their students- leaving to Cambridge/ Imperial. Ah I see how Imperial works then. Do you have a clue on whether it's easy/hard to get in to the MSci course? Of course, nothing in Imperial is easy. But statistically speaking, perhaps?

    I don't mind studying at either unis, it's just that an Imperial degree goes THAT much further in looking for jobs.

    And Well, converting currencies and all, I FEEL like I might slowly go bankrupt and die in London hehe. Just in case, so I'm exploring all options.

    THANKS THOUGH.
    Glad I've helped. As for stats:

    I've got a question. I am an international applicant and i've just passed my exams. Imperial offer is 90% overall with no less than 90% in math and chemistry ( I'm taking extended English, Math and Chemistry). Right now I now I'll get 90% in English as well as Chemistry but definitely not Math. One day before my Math Exam my dad died and I coudn't write it well. Is there any chance to get into Imperial by letting them know about the situation? I know that the score which I'll get will be less than 70%...I'm ready to write an additional Math exam but is it possible?

    Hello there!

    I haven't found a thread for those of us who plan to apply for 2012 yet, so I thought I'd create one. It is, of course, still early days yet (though last years applicant thread was created in May...)!

    Discuss courses, AS results, pre-application anxiety, conditional offer anxiety, post-exam anxiety, cakes (:rolleyes:) etc.

    Below is a list of 2012 Applicants. Please feel free to add yourself to The Stalking Page as well.

    If you want to be on "The List" quote this post with:

    Username: [your username]
    Subject: [the subject you're applying for]

    (If you do change your mind and want to be taken off "The List", let me know!)

    Yeah I got one, I'd like to apply for it but it said about French and I am hopeless at languages so I don't know if I will. Plus I couldn't find much information about the donor!

    Hey Guys,
    I'm trying to apply for undergrad accommodation but am having trouble. Does anyone know how to do this? Apparently after accepting their offer on UCAS we receive an email that allows us to apply for accommodation? But all i have received is an email which explains how to make an account for their e-Service?
    Any help/ explanation would be much appreciated.
    Thanks

    You will also get an email inviting you to apply for accommodation. This usually comes out from may onwards. However there has been some sort of technical problem which is why the accommodation invitations have been delayed.

    Depends on your budget, whether you're willing to share a bedroom, how far from campus you want to live etc. Check out the Imperial College Accommodation Guide Thread for a break down of the different halls. Imperial also has a lot of info and pictures on their website.
