Autumn 2020 term notice

Your course will begin on schedule in the Autumn and Imperial College plans to reopen its campuses. Your teaching will be a combination of on-campus (in-person) and remote (online) learning and research opportunities. We call this ‘multi-mode’ delivery. Depending on official government guidance throughout the entirety of the next academic year, the balance in the ‘multi-mode’ offering may be subject to change. We will do our best to provide you with increased on-campus teaching and research activities as we progress throughout the year.

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 the academic year, you should immediately contact the Department at

For more information about multi-mode delivery 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.
