What to expect at the start of term

What should I 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.

What are the minimum technical requirements for online learning?

Where teaching will be a combination of on-campus and remote learning (online) due to COVID-19, your device and internet access are the most important components of a rewarding remote or online experience.

We want to make certain that you have all the necessary resources available to make the most of your experience. You can find out more on our technical requirements page.

Dress code

Students are requested to wear business attire on their first day. 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!

International students

If you are an international student, make sure you check out the International Students page to see what support is available to International students pre and post arrival at Imperial College.
