What are we looking for from applicants?

We are looking for enthusiasm for science, technology, engineering and mathematics as demonstrated by your personal statement. You will also need to have a proven academic ability with strong English language skills to be able to fully experience the Global Summer School. Finally, a desire and clear motivation for attending our programmes.

What are the academic requirements?

You will need to demonstrate excellent academic ability with a majority of predicted or received 9-7 grades at GCSE level (grades A*-A) or equivalent across all subjects, with a minimum of a grade 7 in maths and science.

If you receive a conditional offer, you will need to send us an up-to-date transcript of your most recent school or college grades to demonstrate that you have met the required academic standard. Where this is not available, further information from your teacher, tutor, school counsellor or equivalent would be required.

See our guide for the most common international qualifications and the UK equivalents.

What are the English language requirements?

Strong English language skills are required. We will ask you to provide proof of an English language qualification (e.g. IELTS) if your first language is not English or English is not the language in which you are taught at school.

The requirements for the Global Summer School are in line with the English language requirements for undergraduate programmes at Imperial. 

If you are unsure that you have the needed English language requirement, please contact us for clarification.
