This page contains important and useful information for you to consider during your time at Imperial College London. Each year every student will have to register and agree to the College's terms and conditions.

The terms and conditions form part of the student registration process and are related to how the College processes students' personal data for standard university administrative processes.

It is important that you read the terms and conditions and privacy notice so that you are fully aware of yours, and the College’s, obligations before you register.‌


If you are enrolling to study at Imperial for the 2020/21 academic year we understand that you will have questions about how the disruption caused by COVID–19 will change our operations and processes in the new academic year.

Inevitably, we have had to make some changes to ensure that we can continue to keep you and our staff safe through the pandemic. We want to reassure you that we are doing all we can to ensure that you receive the best possible academic and student experience this autumn.

We’re currently making plans for our academic and student experience in two scenarios:

  • under partial COVID restrictions (which is what we are expecting will apply at Imperial in autumn 2020); and
  • under full COVID restrictions (if we need to return to lockdown)

You'll find information on both scenarios and how they will apply to lots of different aspects of student life at the College online:

This information covers a whole range of areas from your learning experience, accommodation and extra-curricular activities to amenities, library services and how we are planning to keep you safe at Imperial.

This information forms part of the core terms and conditions for the 2020/21 academic year.

Your programme will begin on schedule and our campuses are open for students and researchers. We are looking forward to seeing you in person, if travel and visa arrangements allow.

Your teaching, research, and training will be a combination of on-campus (in-person) and remote (online). We call this ‘multi-mode’ delivery. 

Full details of the learning experience you can expect are published online:

Programme specific details for undergraduate and taught postgraduate programmes are also available online:

We are working hard – together with Imperial College Union to make sure that you have the best possible experience beyond your studies. Full details of the student community, wellbeing support, careers support and extracurricular activities available during the 2020/21 academic year are published online.
