Calling all Imperial alumni, current students, tutors, future applicants, academics..

Why do you think Imperial has a relatively low satisfaction rate compared to other UK universities? Although this may vary by subject, the trend appears to be quite consistent to put Imperial low within the satisfaction metric. Is it truly because of the London factor, .. or the amount of workload? If you think it is, then why won’t people from Oxbridge simply rate Oxford/Cambridge down because it’s hard? Or maybe, Oxbridge students just generally think that they’re already at the best institutions (therefore, have a tendency to be self-sufficient with it); with literally no other institutions to compare with (at least in the UK). Also, of course they don’t wanna let their prestigious unis go down a slot in the league tables. Oh wait, is it culturally/morally wrong to talk bad about Oxbridge? Whoops.

“They got supervisions/tutorials, so they might as well feel more supported than their Imperial friends,”

If so, does that mean that Imperial doesn’t support their students as much as Oxbridge do? Do you think there will be improvements in the future?

:charm: :charm: :charm:

PS. The lack of social life there has been proven untrue for quite a long time, it actually depends on what kind of person you are and the type of people you’re surrounded yourself with.

When I went to the Year 12 Lecture event thing at Imperial in February they did discuss that there is a fair bit of pastoral care, so I don't really get it. Actually, having checked Complete University Guide, quite a few of the London universities don't have great student satisfaction. LSE particularly.

Indeed, but I’m particularly interested to Imperial’s performance, since it had ranked relatively low compared to other London unis (QM, KCL, UCL, even London Met — tagging Kyber Ninja) in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, for example, according to CUG.

Nice try, London Met doesn't offer chemistry. You're getting reported again, this time for misinformation on London Met

It's a very study hard environment. Not only that but the students have to be very independent. You're lecturers really don't give a toss if you're studying or not.

Oxbridge scores high because of the supervision system.

Fair point. I found that some unis with ‘tough’ courses usually suffer in these 2 criteria (Unistats):

1) The criteria used in marking have been clear in advance.
2) Marking and assessment has been fair.
