student You should explore the rest of the Imperial Success Guide to make sure you find the information and advice that will help you get the most out of your time here, but for now here are a few top tips to get you started...

1. University study is about independence

Take responsibility for your learning and SHAPE your experience. Make it what you want it to be.

2. Participate in tutorials

The more you contribute, the more you will learn.

3. Don’t skip lectures

Results show that those who attend classes get better marks than those who study alone.

4. Meet with your personal tutor

They can help with any problems. You might not need them right away, but you might need them later.

5. Learn to manage your time

Organise your time around lectures, reading, tutorials, library, societies. Include time for YOU – dance, swim, walk, sing, relax.

6. Make friends

Everyone is new. Speak to classmates, form study groups, join societies. Step outside your comfort zone.

7. Use feedback

It’s given to help you improve your work and your grades. Give feedback – we like to improve too.

8. Read around your subject

Don’t just stick to the lecture notes – expand your knowledge.

9. Ask questions

No one knows everything. The more you ask, the more you will learn. And if you like that boy or girl in your seminar – ask them ;)

10. Eat your greens

Feed your brain with thinking fuel. Can’t cook? Learn.

11. Sleep

Whether you’re a night owl, or an early bird, make sure you sleep. While you sleep, your body is working to maintain your health.

12. Know yourself

People have different motivations, study styles, backgrounds, families, habits, music tastes... The better you know yourself the more likely you will succeed.

13. Enjoy London

You’re living in one of the greatest, most diverse, cities in the world. Explore, discover, and experience the city – it’s all part of being an Imperial student.
