    I have a question for anybody attending Imperial who does engineering (or has to regularly make use of the Labs)

    I have heard of quite a few people who have turned down Imperial after receiving an offer. I've been told by a student at Brunel uni that he turned it down because of the an attitude that he said a lot of the people there have (stuff like having a large ego), and also because of the high research intensity the labs are hard to get a hold of.

    Can these claims be confirmed or refuted by anyone?

    Cheers

    Aside from anything else, Brunel's campus is depressing.

    That sucks. Was that for Engineering? UCL's Engineering is pretty lacking compared to its other departments.

    Yeah :| UCL has a wide range of bursaries, scholarships and support in general while Imperial is more, let's say, "elitist".

    I don't think it's quite elitist as Imperial's bursary scheme is the most generous in the country and also all of its scholarships. It's just that international students aren't offered bursaries.

    As an Imperial grad, I can confirm that it is every bit as good as the rankings suggest :yes:

    Rejecting Imperial in favour of Brunel is simply unheard of :rofl:
