Balancing lectures with practical tasks, it's a chance for you to challenge yourself academically and personally as you join a global community of learners.
You'll also gain a first hand look at life at a world top 10 university, with plenty of opportunity to see for yourself why London attracts more international students than any other city in the world.
Learn from experts
The work of our experts in making the world a healthier, safer and cleaner place to live has helped us earn the title of the UK’s most innovative university for the third year running (Reuters’ Europe’s Most Innovative Universities 2018).
You’ll hear from some of these experts first-hand as they introduce you to some of the latest advances in areas including:
- climate change reduction
- global health
- cyberspace security
- data science
Discover the journey of an entrepreneur
Hear from some of our entrepreneurs who are driving progress by launching their innovations into the commercial world.
The number of start-up companies founded by Imperial students and researchers has more than doubled in the past five years – reaching a record high of more than 136 in 2018 and generating close to £900 million of investment since 2012.
Improve your English language skills
All Summer School students will have an immersive learning experience in English.
If you think you would benefit from additional English language support, there is the option to take a week-long integrated English language course before the two-week summer school starts. This makes the programme three weeks in total.
