Economics Finance and Data Science Imperial College

Hey guys, I wanted to open a thread to people who applied to Economics Finance and Data Science for 2023 entrance.

Considering the fact that we have got a while until offers will start to come out I thought it would be a good idea to share thoughts/ experiences/ and when the time comes offers to make this less stressful for all of us :smile:

Exactly why I'm confused. My friend had her interview already, and interviewer said the same; then she got an offer in January, haha.

I mean I think she was exceptionally good then because the UCAS deadline was three days ago so I think they are only now starting to review everyone else and still have interviews going on. Hopefully we will be fine. What are your stats? In terms of predicted grades etc...

Hi everyone, I wanted to confirm whether this course is a part of "Imperial College London" or "Imperial College Business School". It's important to make this distinction because if you're paying exorbitant fees not only for a top-tier education, but for the name, you want to ensure that it's the former rather than the latter that you are able to put on your CV.

The course is taught at Imperial College London under their department which is Imperial College Business School. I believe up until today they only taught post graduate degrees but this is their first undergraduate degree to be started in October 2023
Im in yr12 and this is my main choice for a course to pick for UCAS along with economics and politics at LSE I do not do further maths, I take maths, economics and comp sci. First of all do you need FM to apply for this because it does not say it from imperial but as yk most of the times it comes as most likely fm gets higher acceptance. And also how did you guys write your personal statements for this along with ur other options because the rest of mine are straight economics at UCL, Warwick etc so how to tie in all. Pretty much if you look at all my options there the subjects overall to discuss are economics, data science and politics

If a weighting of your fees are for prestige, would this then show up on your CV as Imperial College London or ICBS?

Although FM is preferred, it is not required (I believe). With regards to your PS, they don't expect you to incorporate all three domains of knowledge. It is perfectly fine to focus on one, because in year three, you can specialise in one area or focus on all three areas.

I'm not sure but I think Imperial College London as ICBS is the department rather than the university.
