About Imperial College London and Scholarship

Imperial College London, officially known as the Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, stands as a preeminent public research university situated in the heart of London, England. Its distinguished history can be traced back to the visionary Prince Albert, consort of Queen Victoria, who conceived a cultural enclave comprising the Royal Albert Hall, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum, and several royal colleges.

In 1907, Imperial College London was officially established by royal charter, uniting the Royal College of Science, the Royal School of Mines, and the City and Guilds of London Institute. The subsequent amalgamation with St Mary’s Hospital Medical School in 1988 led to the formation of the Imperial College School of Medicine. In 2004, Queen Elizabeth II inaugurated the Imperial College Business School, further enriching the university’s academic landscape.
