Students working together on an assignment

If you are an undergraduate student starting in academic year 2019-20 onwards, you'll take a for-degree-credit module from outside of your discipline in either Year 2 or Year 3 (depending on your department).

The modules are called I-Explore Modules.

How it works

In either Year 2 or 3 of your degree (depending on your department), you will take an I-Explore Module. The module you choose will be fully integrated into your course’s curriculum and will count as credit towards your degree.

To make it easier to follow your interests, we’ve divided our huge portfolio of options into the following four categories.

Imperial Horizons

Imperial Horizons gives you access to a wide range of options, including modules focused on humanities, social sciences, languages, and culture, society and global challenges. There are also opportunities to collaborate with the Enterprise Lab and the Advanced Hackspace and work on projects with real-world impact.

Business for Professional Engineers and Scientists (BPES)

BPES modules, delivered by Imperial College Business School, give you the chance to gain a greater understanding of the financial, strategic and operational context of your core subject through face-to-face and online classes.

STEMM modules

These modules allow you to study areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine (STEMM) from outside of your chosen subject.

This will also include topical areas of science being pioneered by our researchers that are not currently offered within our undergraduate courses.

Multidisciplinary projects

Like the Faculty of Natural Sciences’ annual ‘Make-A-Difference’ competition, these multidisciplinary projects have collaboration at their heart.

You will work with staff and students from across the College on projects which provide the opportunity and space to explore an idea, create a prototype or solve a problem.

*Students taking a year abroad or a year in industry will not normally be able to choose from the full range of I-Explore.
