Welcome to the next generation

Help us welcome new students to the Imperial community

Can you remember how you felt when you first arrived at Imperial? Were you excited? Nervous? How many times did you get lost in your first week? Did you make friends straightaway or did you feel lonely or homesick?

In some ways, students joining us in October 2020 will have an Imperial experience unlike any other. With a mix of in-person and online teaching, some students joining remotely from countries around the world, and social distancing measures to consider, it won't be a typical start to their university life. Some things, though, are universal. The nerves, the excitement, the potential that a new term brings. We're asking you to share some words of advice to help us welcome the newest members of our community, to make their lives a little easier and to reassure them that the knowledge, experience and friends they will gain here will last them a lifetime.
