Undergraduate

The Department currently accepts exchange students from our partner universities in the Erasmus programme (Telecom Paristech, INP Grenoble, Ecole Polytechnique, RWTH Aachen, Tor Vergata Rome, KTH Stockholm, KU Leuven, TU Delft), the Swiss-European Mobility programme (ETH Zurich) and also from National University of Singapore and the University of California.
 

Students usually select their modules from those offered to the 3rd and 4th year students; although students from Singapore may select 2nd year modules. Exchange students can come for one term, or an academic year. If you come for one term, you will need to return in May-June to take exams.

You should discuss your interest in the exchange with your home university co-ordinator. You must have been selected and nominated to Imperial College before you submit an application to us.


Master's

Master's level students can come to spend time with us working on their project.

You are advised to familiarise yourself with the department's areas of research and possibly contact a potential supervisor to informally discuss research topics before submitting your application. Keep in mind that formal admissions decisions can only be made after the application has been processed by the College Registry and the Department.

Students can spend up to one calendar year with us. If you are a non-EEA student who needs a student visa to study in the UK you will be required to apply for ATAS clearance before applying for a Tier 4 (General) student visa. If you are planning to spend longer than 6 months with us you will need to meet the College's English language requirement.
