    I was wondering if uk universities like imperial or cambridge keep the emails we send asking for information.

    That would depend entirely on the person you're sending them to and the importance of your e-mail. There is not some massive e-mail databank.

    In a specific department asking for information about the entry requirements.

    Yeah they keep them so they can reject you if you've ever emailed them with a stupid question.

    The person who'll get your e-mail will be whoever you emailed, not the department as a whole. For example if you emailed your question to an admissions tutor they would have it in their personal inbox, no one else would have access to it. I doubt they'd file it away, most academics get a great many e-mails a day to answer.

    Is the admissions tutor the person who gets your application and decides whether to accept you or not?Or is it a person who knows well about the admission procedures and is responsible for replying to emails?

    The admissions tutor is basically the person who decides to admit you to the course or not, they're usually the course co-ordinator and the leading academic in the subject. If it is a larger course there will probably be several such admissions tutors, if a small course i.e <20 then probably only one or two admissions tutor(s).

    They would save it if there is a need to save if, like if you emailed asking about your specific application. But if you just emailed a general query, they wouldn't.

    I highly doubt they would keep your email and cross reference it with your application as a way of weeding out people who ask stupid questions, in case thats what your worried about.
