Support at Imperial

Central Library – Imperial South Kensington Campus

There are a number of different books available on writing. All staff and students can easily access the library catalogue from the library website. Run a search and type in 'Writing Skills' or 'Effective Writing', and a number of books will be suggested.

Study Loan Scheme

College staff can benefit from an interest-free loan to help with the costs of part-time study while employed by Imperial. The aim is to help staff engage in studies that will further their career aspirations yet fall outside the College's provision.
The scheme works similarly to the Season Ticket Loan and the i-Cycle scheme.

Useful Websites
