PowerPoint templates

When you are presenting on behalf of the College to internal or external audiences, we recommend that you use the College’s Powerpoint template to create your slides.

Imperial PowerPoint template

The Imperial PowerPoint template is blank for you to add your own content:

This is Imperial Template

The 'This is Imperial' presentation contains pre-made slides about the College. You can use all or some of these slides in your own presentation to external audiences:

PPTProspective student presentation

In collaboration with the Student Recruitment and Outreach Division, we have developed a specific set of slides for presenting to prospective students. These are available in versions suitable for applicants to undergraduate study, postgraduate study, or a generic audience.

The slides are populated with content about the College, but also contain blank templates for you to personalise with your own content:

If you have any problems accessing this content, please contact the Communications team by emailing the Style Guide. We will be happy to send these materials to you directly.

Email signature template

Email signatures should use the Arial font and follow this style:

Name
Job title
Department / Division (if relevant)
Imperial College London, Your Campus Room, Building (if required)
London XXX XXX (local campus postcode)
Tel: +44 (0)20 XXXX XXXX (using the international dial format helps overseas recipients)
Other number (if required)
Fax: +44 (0)20 XXXX XXXX

At the bottom of your signature, you could add a sentence directing viewers to a particular service or offer that is relevant to your area.

We do not recommend the addition of the College logo or any other icons or images to your message as the files may react with spam filters used by recipients.

Dissertation and thesis cover templates

It is not permitted for you to use the College crest on your dissertation or thesis cover. The College crest is an important part of the graphic identity of Imperial College London and is reserved for uses which promote the heritage and history of the College, such as degree certificates, invitations to formal College events, and sports team apparel and official merchandise.

Instead, please use the Imperial College London logo.

For more details, please contact Style Guide.

LaTex templates

These files have been tested on Linux and some Unix systems. They require the current version of LaTeX, which is LaTeX2, and the packages Fancyheadings and Graphics.

The following files need to be downloaded. Either individually below or download the set as a LaTex zip file:

  1. The Imperial College London logo as an encapsulated PostScript file: imperial.eps
  2. A LaTeX class file that conforms to the formatting rules: impletter.cls. Download the set as a zip file see link above.
  3. One (or more) of the LaTeX files to be used as templates for your letters

If you have purchased paper with personalised printed headers (including your name, address, contact details and qualifications), you need letter_headed.tex.

If you have paper printed with the blue logo and a blue statutory information footer only, you need letter_logo.tex.

If you are going to use blank paper you need letter_blank.tex.

Comments in the LaTeX template files explain the College's formatting requirements. Some adjustment parameters are provided to centre the printed page because different printers position the print area slightly differently.

Make your adjustments and personalise these template files. They can then be copied to become every new letter you write.

LaTeX needs to be able to find the logo (1) and class (2) files. There are several ways to make these files available:

- Ask your system administrator to copy them into the system-wide directory for LaTeX inputs.

- Place copies in the same directory as the copy of the template file you are using for your letter.

- Create your own LaTeX inputs directory and place copies there. To make LaTeX aware of the files in this directory, add the following line to the shell configuration file in your home directory:

shell file line to add bash(Linux) .bash_profile export TEXINPUTS=path-of-texinputs: ksh .profile export TEXINPUTS=path-of-texinputs: csh/tcsh .login setenv TEXINPUTS path-of-texinputs:

where "path-of-texinputs" is the path of your LaTeX inputs directory. Make sure you add the : at the end - otherwise the system-wide tex files will not be read!

If your distribution does not have the package Fancyheadings, copy this file, fancyheadings.sty, to the same directory you used for the logo and class files impletter.cls‌. You can download the set as a LaTex zip file.

LaTex 2.09 templates

These files work on Unix/Linux and the most common Windows implementations of LaTeX 2.09. An alternative to fancyheadings must be included with all the other files.

The following files need to be downloaded individually or download the complete LaTeX 2.09 set as a zip file:

  1. The Imperial College London logo as an encapsulated PostScript file: imperial.eps
  2. A LaTeX class file that conforms to the formatting rules: implet.sty. Download the complete 2.09 set in a zip, see the link above.
  3. One (or more) of the LaTeX files to be used as templates for your letters

If you have purchased paper with personalised printed headers (including your name, address, contact details and qualifications), you need implethd.tex.

If you have paper printed with the blue logo and a blue statutory information footer only, you need impletlg.tex.

If you are going to use blank paper you need impletbl.tex.
