"I came to Imperial to study because of its high level of education, its location and its links with industry. Not only am I studying at one of the best universities in the world, but I also get to live in one of the most interesting and vibrant cities in the world! Imperial has a very international feel to it. I think it’s interesting and important to meet lots of different people from diverse backgrounds. It has really opened my eyes to learn about different people’s beliefs and ways of life."
