Students will be able to access the information and support they need more quickly and conveniently thanks to a re-design of the student web pages.

The new look Imperial Students means support services, resources and news are now presented in a more intuitive and attractive design.

The College worked with students to find out what mattered most to them in order to make the information more prominent.

The improvements mean:

  • Student support services and information from across the College is gathered in one place
  • The information students find most useful is more prominent
  • The latest term-time updates, such as graduation and exam information, is easier to find
  • The latest Student Blogs and College News is just a click away

David Ashton, Academic Registrar, said: "There is lots of information online for students. However with this redesign we took a student-centric view and worked with students to determine the information they needed and how it should be best categorised.

"This single access point means that students and those who guide them can find information easily.”

Why has the page been redesigned?

It’s important that students can get the support and information they need as easily as possible. By bringing all of this information together under one landing page it helps staff and students do this with ease. Support has been divided into the following categories:

My Studies

Students can check they are up to date with exam regulations, find support for any academic administrative issues and get timetabling advice and hints and tips for using the Blackboard.

My Finances

Students with queries about their finances can browse the fees and funding pages for advice on tuition fees, council tax exemptions, and scholarships.

Here for You

Students requiring a wide range of support, from chaplaincy advice, to dentist appointments, to resources from the Disability Advisory Service, can find relevant information in this section.

Resources

Students can access advice on the Library and ICT Services. A range of helpful study guides are also available.

Getting Involved

This section highlights the Imperial College Union, various volunteering opportunities, and advice on making sure students’ voices are heard throughout their time at Imperial by getting involved in the National Student Survey.

Other Services

This section provides students with answers to questions they might have for the Careers Service, or the Visa and Accommodation teams.
