Academic year 2020/21

Imperial College London will be open in the academic year 2020/21 with courses being delivered using a mix of online and in-person teaching, depending on the course. We will be in touch with all the information you need closer to the start of term, but in the meantime you can find further details and useful links below.

New student information


For the latest information please see the Exam results: What next? and COVID-19 information for applicants and offer holders pages. You'll find specific information on the Chemical Engineering course programme details page for new and returning students.

Contact Andreas Kogelbauer (Director of Course Operations) or Margaret Gee (Undergraduate Administrator) if you have further questions.

MSc students

Your course will begin on schedule in the Autumn and we plan to reopen our 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 next academic year, the balance in the ‘multi-mode’ offering may be subject to change. We will do our best to provide you 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 using the details in the ‘Further information’ section below.

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 and MSc Chemical Engineering offer holders pages.

Common questions

What if I’m not able to attend the course in person due to personal circumstances or travel restrictions?

If you’re unable to attend in person, we have made provisions so that all students can complete the course whether they choose to attend in person or remotely.

Who can I contact if I have further questions?

Christian Addie is the Senior MSc Administrator and will be in touch with you over the coming weeks with further information about your course. Please contact him if you have any specific questions.

PhD students

For information on your course please see the Chemical Engineering PhD Offer Holders page.

Your supervisor will be in contact with you directly to discuss your research needs and any access needs you may have. If you have any questions in the meantime please contact Postgraduate Office Manager Susi Underwood.
