Imperial–MIT student exchange
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).
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:

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