"I really wanted to be in an environment that welcomed international students. Because Imperial is one of the most international universities in the UK, I knew it would be right for me. I was so welcomed, especially during the first few days after arriving, and felt instantly at home. – Anjanette, Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Indonesia)"
