Yes, it's up there with the likes of Oxford and Cambridge. I'm sure you won't regret going there!

If you want fun, then don't. If you want to study, then definitely.

I presume it is quite tough to enter, are you at undergraduate or master's level?

It's where everyone applies who either didn't get into Oxbridge, or didn't want to for some other reason. So the cream of the crop outside Oxbridge, best No. 3 (with UCL).

To answer your question: yes. Unless you do an arts course,

I don't really think it's necessary to go to Oxbridge, Imperial is just as good but that's my opinion, it's ranked 10th in the world despite people from the US not knowing about the institution.

It’s only ranked tenth in the world - no point going to such a mickey mose university

In all seriousness though I’m really enjoying my degree and I don’t know anyone here who regrets choosing the university. Contrary to popular belief, there are also plenty of students for whom Imperial was their first choice, and who may have picked it over Oxbridge or MIT and other top US universities.

By the way, is it possible to go to Imperial for further study if my undergraduate degree I am studying is not really related to a STEM subject or is it just closed to science/math subjects? Say if I get 2.1, I'm wondering if this is possible.

Its a top 10 university globally for STEM so you can't go wrong with it. Second only to Oxbridge in terms of "prestige/reputation" but to employers its probably equal to Oxbridge. There are more international students than english students there which may be a pro/con for you and it is very male-dominant too. Has a reputation of not being a very "social or party heavy" uni and has some similar mental health issues like Oxbridge but university is what you make of it ig.

It's also my opinion that Imperial has its strengths, and Oxbridge have theirs. However, Oxbridge are comfortably world-class across the board and have a stronger reputation for that reason.

Yes that's true but OP has a stronger chance getting into Imperial.

As a UCL admit, I'd probably say Imperial (and LSE) are slightly more prestigious and better than UCL for the respective courses. UCL just has a better vibe and social life however

According to the metrics and rankings, in Imperial's case, not really, especially internationally. If so, only barely. And LSE is not rated well by its students, so I'm guessing they do some great research to rank so highly. Also, been to the university and, at least in terms of resources, it didn't look anywhere near Imperial or UCL.

Rankings are bs lol don't pay any attention to them, something that can vary so much in a short amount of time based on years' of academic growth is p silly imo. LSE isn't rated well by students because it's a p cold environment and doesn't feel like a university moreso an investment banking factory at times but as a result of this its very prestigious as its directly associated with prestigious careers in people's minds. It has less resources true.. but also a fraction of the students so.. - it doesn't do STEM so hardly needs expensive labs and equipment too. Imperial is also seen as being slightly better than UCL for STEM in the general public and by employers, especially for the maths as it makes up COWI which is the UK's top maths schools to employers. Differences might be marginal but LSE & imperial tend to be more prestigious than UCL ever so slightly, especially in some circles (like banking and academia). Speaking as someone who got into all 3 and still chose UCL, more so for the social life and course.

Fair enough, then, I don't have a zeal for finance-related courses, so it's difficult to comment on LSE. I know, if I did, I probably still wouldn't apply to LSE, over them, but that's my opinion.

I mean LSE is sorta the factory for finance careers and is second to none for it so it would be difficult to pass up for a lot of people (bear in mind most apply there for these sorta careers). Personally I gave it up because the course was sorta bad and i want to have sex at uni lol. Wouldn't say UCL is miles behind either, just like a quarter of a tier if even that, its just they're both so specialised but tbh it hardly matters
