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!

The on campus induction week was a fantastic immersive orientation and bonding experience. From the start I know that I have made some great friends and colleagues for life.
