Autumn term 2020-21 news

This course will begin on schedule in Autumn and we look forward to seeing new and returning students in person, if travel and visa arrangements allow. If students can’t travel to campus in time for the start of term, the Department has made plans to still provide them a high-quality remote educational experience during the Autumn term.

Teaching will be a combination of on-campus (in-person) and remote learning (online), known as ‘multi-mode’ delivery. The balance in the ‘multi-mode’ offering may be subject to change. We will do our best to provide you increased on-campus teaching and research activities as we progress throughout the year.  For more information about multi-mode delivery, the learning experience and the steps we’ll be taking to keep students safe on campus, please see our Covid-19 information for applicants and offer holders page.

We will update our course pages with further details once they are finalised.

The pace and intensity of a one-year Master’s course can be demanding, and is different to undergraduate study. The Imperial Success Guide for Master’s Students, and the links below, provide advice about how to approach postgraduate work, as well as indicating the sources of support available to you during your time at Imperial. Helpful advice and information can also be found on:
