You must register before arriving on campus. This will mean uploading a photograph and (if you are an overseas student) a copy of your passport photo page and visa.
Make sure you print off the Registration Confirmation page and bring it with you, as this will be necessary for various induction procedures. College identity (ID or swipe) cards can be collected from the PG Office, Room 316, Blackett Laboratory or handed out in the halls of accommodation on arrival if you are staying in halls.
If you haven’t uploaded your photo, you will need to go to the ID card office, Level 1, Shefield Building, where they will take your photo and either send it to the Department for you to collect or give it to you directly. More information can be found on the College new students website.
If you have already done an undergraduate or masters course at Imperial, please note that you will need to give your old card in to the ID Card office to be able to obtain the new one.
The timetable during Welcome Week is slightly different for each student and varies from programme to programme. You should have received the information about activities specific to your programme from your Programme Director or Administrator. There is more information about the College's welcome activities on the website for new students.
There are Welcome events for Master Students taking place.
