Life in London

The world’s number-one student city
London repeatedly comes out on top in the QS Best Student Cities Index 2023, thanks to its concentration of world-class universities, professional and social opportunities, and its extraordinary cultural confluence.
The UK’s capital is also Europe’s finance capital. Imperial is just a short tube ride from the City, London’s finance and business hub. This will provide you with ample opportunities to visit leading organisations and build valuable contacts. Our Employer Relations team will be on hand to help. The School’s reputation also brings experts directly to you. Industry leaders regularly join us on campus, sharing their experience as guest speakers and lecturers.
With over 300 languages spoken and 43% of residents born outside the UK* London is a whole world in one city. Whether it’s food, entertainment, or opinions, the diversity is unrivalled – and invigorating.
