Imperial College, one of England's foremost academic institutions located in South Kensington, part of London's Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, developed following the Great Exhibition of 1851. The scientific and cultural heartland of London, the area around Imperial College contains historic museums and galleries, international hotels, and first class shops and restaurants. The college's closest neighbors include the Victoria & Albert and the Science and Natural History Museums, the Royal Albert Hall, and Harrods. Being located on a major college campus provides students with access to numerous campus facilities including the Imperial College Sports Centre with a 25-meter pool, Jacuzzi, 4 squash courts, fitness gym, and weight room.
In London, we follow a weekday schedule of lectures, seminars, and travel. A typical day starts with a hearty English breakfast at the college dining facility, followed by class from 8:00 - 10:00 a.m. By 10:30 you are on your way, exploring London and nearby cities for the remainder of the day. Return for dinner each evening to the college dining facility. Announcements and bulletin boards keep you informed of theatre, symphony and ballet performances, as well as shopping and sporting opportunities. For a quieter evening, Imperial provides a Commons Room, BBC television, game rooms, and washing/drying facilities. Some weekends are scheduled with faculty-escorted trips. Other weekends allow free time for shopping and for exploring on your own.
Quiet time? Hyde
Park, a two-block walk from your dormitory, provides ample space for relaxation
and Sunday debate opportunities at its famous Hyde Park Corner. You will
have a rare opportunity to participate in church services at the Westminster
Abbey, St. Paul's, All Souls or Bloomsbury Baptist. Photos? You don't
have enough film to capture all the sights: the River Thames, double-decker
buses, Buckingham Palace and the changing of the guard, the London Eye,
Trafalgar Square, the Tower of Big Ben, and Parliament.
