Discover the exchange programme between Imperial and MIT

Imperial has an exchange programme with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

The programme gives students from ten Imperial departments the chance to spend up to a year studying at MIT, while at the same time building credit towards their Imperial degree.

It builds on existing links between the College and US-based institution, including through the International Research Opportunities Programme (IROP).

Participating departments

A limited number of places will be available through the exchange.

Currently, ten Imperial departments and eight MIT departments are taking part. See which MIT departments our departments are partnered with:

How the exchange works

To be considered for this exchange, you need to be achieving a certain academic standard by the time of selection for year abroad places within your department. This may vary by participating department.

Places highly competitive, so other selection processes may apply and vary by department.

Please contact the department you're interested in joining directly for more information about the selection process – the contact details for each department are available on our course pages.
