How to apply
Applications can only be submitted online. In order to apply, please visit the College how to apply section.
Applications for 2018 entry are open and have a deadline of 15 June 2018; however, please be advised that we reserve the right to close applications before this date. As such, we recommend applying sooner rather than later.
We strongly recommend early applications, as the numbers of places are limited.
GRE scores on Verbal and Quantitative Reasoning are required for all MSc Computing (Specialism) degrees. Applicants for the MSc Computing Science and MSc Advanced Computing are welcome to submit GRE scores should they wish, but it is not mandatory for these courses.
All MSc Computing Specialism applicants (UK, EU, Overseas) must provide Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores for Quantitative Reasoning and Verbal Reasoning. When sending scores to the Department of Computing, please submit through the GRE Online System using 3007 Imperial College as the Institution Code and 0402 Computer Science as the Department Code. While there is no minimum requirement for GRE scores, a strong application would include scores higher than 159 for Quantitative Reasoning and higher than 145 for Verbal Reasoning.
Only the first set of GRE scores received will be considered and we will not be able to assess an application until we have received the official online confirmation from ETS.
