You have already achieved success in an undergraduate degree, and possibly a Master's degree or in the world of work. But studying for a research degree is very different.
Your relationship with your supervisor is central to the success of your research degree. Your supervisor will be able to guide you on the nature of your research and the standard expected, and more generally should help you to develop your abilities and to achieve the best possible outcomes.

While your research is your own work, you will probably be part of a team, either in your research group and/or in a larger collaboration. Use your time at Imperial to develop this skill.
Research integrity is an important part of carrying out research. Imperial College expects all staff and research students to adhere to a code of ethics and professional standards appropriate to carrying out research.
