MultiSci reflects Imperial College’s drive to constantly improve our positive research culture, with a structure that puts our students at the centre, providing supportive, embedded cohort mentorship, innovative career development tools developed for this programme and training, at both wider research and transferable skills levels. A key feature of the programme is the focus on our new White City Campus to enable industry interactions, outreach and global networking.
