Start of term

Preparing for the start of term

We are very much looking forward to meeting you on the first day of term!

Your dedicated programme team are busy planning a fun and informative itinerary for your Induction. Induction is a fantastic opportunity to get to know your programme team, the campus, and of course your new classmates so it is very important that you are in attendance for this.

You’ll be contacted via email closer to the start of term with confirmation of your arrival time so please make sure you check your nominated email account regularly. In the meantime, you MUST ensure that you have completed online registration before you can begin your studies.


What to bring

On your first day of term, please only bring essentials with you, as you will be given all of your programme materials when you arrive. There are specific laptop requirements for MSc Business Analytics students.


Dress code

The normal dress code for the Business School is casual; however we would recommend business attire on any days that you are attending employer presentations or events.

Welcome events

Welcome Events for all students will be listed on Imperial’s New Students website, where you can also find information about finances, support services and life as a student.

If you have Facebook, make sure you’ve joined your programme’s Facebook group as this is a great way to get to know your future classmates before you’ve even stepped foot in the Business School!

My advice would be to use any chance to meet others on the programme either when it starts or even before (we organised a dinner). You'll meet some great people but you'll also feel better during the first days if you already know somebody.
