Comprehensive support networks are in place in each department, helping support your child's academic and personal development.
Personal Tutors are your child's first point of contact at the College. They are a member of academic staff who provides help and support with academic and personal issues.
They can help with academic, welfare, financial or pastoral issues that your child may have. Personal Tutors can even provide an academic reference when applying for jobs, placements or further study.
Senior Tutors oversee personal and academic tutors. If your child's Personal Tutor is unavailable, your child can turn to the Senior Tutor further advice.
What if my child is struggling with their course?
You child's Personal Tutor can help. They will be able to advise them about their academic progress, identify strengths and weaknesses, and suggest ways to improve their performance.
Imperial currently holds the top spot for career prospects in The Guardian University Guide 2020. We’re committed to maintaining this success.
Our Careers Service provides a wealth of guidance. Your child can meet professional careers consultants from their very first day.
Career development activities help students to prepare for life after Imperial – whether entering the world of work, progressing to further study or starting their own business.
