About Imperial College London and Scholarship

Imperial College London, officially known as the Imperial College of Science, Technology, and Medicine, is a prestigious public research university situated in the heart of London, England. It all began with Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s consort, who had an idea for a cultural area that would house famous establishments like the Natural History Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Royal Albert Hall, and other royal colleges.

The Royal School of Mines, the Royal College of Science, and the City and Guilds of London Institute came together to form Imperial College London, which was founded in 1907 by royal charter. This alliance established a powerful entity devoted to the advancement of science, technology, and medical research and teaching. By joining forces with St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School in 1988, Imperial broadened its scope and established the Imperial College School of Medicine. In 2004, the school expanded its range of academic programs with the official opening of the Imperial College Business School by Queen Elizabeth II.


A name for itself in the domains of research, engineering, business, and medicine has been established by Imperial College London. The center of large-scale teaching and research operations is the main campus, which is situated in South Kensington. In addition, the university opened a second campus in White City to promote entrepreneurship and innovation. These campuses are complemented by teaching hospitals that are placed thoughtfully across London, resulting in an academic health science center.

Once a part of the University of London, Imperial College London became independent in 2007, a significant turning point in its academic history.

With 59% of students from outside the United Kingdom, the institution’s extremely international student body reflects its dedication to fostering a worldwide academic community. With students from 140 countries, the campus is a proud representation of a melting pot of many cultures, contributing to a lively and stimulating learning environment.

The collaboration between Imperial College London and Conicyt, the Chilean government’s student funding agency, is one special project highlighting the institution’s worldwide perspective. Imperial provides financial options for postgraduate students pursuing master’s and doctorate degrees through this collaboration. This is a prime example of the university’s commitment to promoting global partnerships and giving students everywhere the chance to pursue innovative academic and research possibilities.
