Campus and neighbourhood

The best of both worlds: a vibrant campus community in the centre of London

Exceptional teaching, research and leisure facilities

During your weekends on campus, you’ll join your fellow Executive MBAs at our vibrant South Kensington Campus in one of London’s most attractive neighbourhoods. The campus has some of the very best teaching, research and leisure facilities, including our 24-hour Central Library, a wide range of restaurants, bars and cafes, as well as the Student Hub – a one-stop-shop for all student enquiries. As a student, you will also benefit from a free gym and swim membership at our Ethos sports centre and have access to all the events, clubs, societies, facilities and services at Imperial College Union. There’s plenty of green space too, including a beautiful landscaped square, with our famous Queen’s Tower at one end.

Experience the place where science, arts and inspiration come together

South Kensington is at the heart of ‘Albertopolis’, the realisation of Prince Albert’s vision for an area where science and the arts would come together. As a result, some of London’s most famous cultural treasures are on your doorstep, such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, Natural History Museum and the Science Museum. Another near-by iconic venue is the Royal Albert Hall where you will celebrate your hard work and achievement in style as this is where our graduation ceremonies are held.

If you’d like to take a relaxing break from studying you can head over to one of London’s largest and most popular parks, Hyde Park or neighbouring Kensington Gardens one of the capital’s eight Royal Parks. Or, if you fancy a spot of shopping you are just around the corner from Knightsbridge where there are some of London’s most exclusive shops including one of the world’s favourites– Harrods. There is an expansive choice of places to eat and drink around South Kensington, from Farmers’ Markets to afternoon tea at a 5-star hotel.
