Established: 1907Imperial College London is a public research university located in London, which specialises in science, engineering, medicine and business. Imperial College Business School was established in 2003. Imperial is organised into four main faculties within which there are over 40 departments, institutes and research centres. Imperial has around 13,500 students and 3,330 academic and research staff.
Undergraduate: Imperial is amongst the most selective universities in the UK. The overall acceptance rate to degree programmes has consistently been below 20% and, in 2009, the acceptance rate for postgraduates was 19.5% and 15.3% for undergraduates. Along with University College London and the University of Cambridge, Imperial was one of the first universities in the UK to make use of the A* grade at A Level for admissions, with engineering and physics courses requiring an A* in Mathematics. Imperial announced in 2008 that it was exploring the possibility of entrance exams to help it select the most suitable students. Since then, Imperial has been reviewing and piloting a range of assessment approaches, such as subject-specific tests, skill tests and motivation-based tests as part of enhanced interviews. The Faculty of Medicine already uses the BMAT as part of the selection process.
Postgraduate: Students want to apply taught Master's programmes normally require a First Class or high Upper Second Class UK honours degree, or its foreign equivalent.
