Hi,

I applied to study maths (G100) as an oversea student and I wanted to compare imperial to other unis like oxbridge, warwick, etc. I found this very informative thread but it is 8 years ago, so I'm expecting there have to be several changes in both academic (course difficulty) and non academic aspects (e.g. teacher to student ratio/social life/job prospects) since then. I must say that the thread described imperial maths as something very appealing to those who enjoy challenges/extremely competitive environments.

I'm not sure about my exact career paths yet. Not sure if I'm going to like London but if the college try their best to help me get a job that pays well, then i guess i'm fine with it. (I'm desperate, i won't be going to uni at all for the sake of only socialisation/"associationship" or only knowledge. not that I can't afford the cost. i would like having those thicc money after graduation.)

Thanks in advance

They've just changed up the course for people starting in 2019 with the Introduction to University Mathematics module. That's one module that you do for around the first month or so. I don't do maths but from what I've gathered it seems to have a pretty good set of lecturers. The intro module mixes together a lot of content, even taking content from 2nd or 3rd year modules. So the first term is actually surprisingly intensive.
The downside is, they didn't really have a fresher's week except for the first day. But that's only fresher's.

That's really not the job of the university. Yes, there will be assorted sessions on transferable skills that industry / employers likes, career advice and quite a few "meet and greet" sessions with firms that are recruiting, above and beyond the academic side of the course, but the university is not going to contact employers, line up interviews of guarantee a particularly job for you. What they will do is provide an opportunity to earn a very well respected degree, but how you sell that to an employer is really down to you.
