Autumn 2020 term notice

This course will begin on schedule in the Autumn and Imperial College plans to reopen its campuses. We are looking forward to seeing you in person if travel and visa arrangements allow. If you can’t travel to campus in time for the start of term, we want to reassure you that the Department of Bioengineering has made plans which make it possible to offer you a high-quality remote educational experience during the Autumn term. 

Your teaching will be a combination of on-campus (in-person) and remote learning (online). We call this ‘multi-mode’ delivery. Depending on official government guidance throughout the entirety of the next academic year, the ‘multi-mode’ balance may be subject to change. We hope to be able to offer you increased on-campus teaching and learning activities throughout the year. 

For more information about multi-mode delivery, your learning experience and the steps we’ll be taking to keep you safe on campus if you are able to join us, please see our COVID-19 information for applicants and offer holders page.

The regulations are the 'Rules' which define how your year mark is calculated, and what you must do to progress to your next year of study. The Regulations are posted on this webpage at or before the start of the academic year, and may only be changed with agreement from both staff and students.

All exams and coursework, their pass-marks, and their contributions to the overall year mark are stated in this document, along with a description of the marks required to pass the year, and the implications should a student not satisfy those criteria.

Summary of the table's contents


The Departmental Student Handbook is issued to you in week one of Autumn term in hardcopy for each year of your programme, and is also posted on this page in electronic form.

The handbook contains very important information for your academic life, and also for your life in College outside of work. You should read the handbook as soon as possible after you receive it so that if an event or circumstance arises, you know what action to take, or at least know that the information on what action to take is available to you.

The information in the handbook was correct at the time of going to printing. Students should be aware that occasionally changes have to be made. Keep an eye on the website, and check your emails regularly for updates.

Included in the handbook is information on:
