About Imperial College London and Scholarship
Imperial College London (often known simply as Imperial) is a public research university in London, England. Its history began with Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s consort, who envisioned a cultural region that comprised the Royal Albert Hall, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum, and many royal colleges. Imperial College London was founded by royal license in 1907, combining the Royal College of Science, the Royal School of Mines, and the City and Guilds of London Institute. The Imperial College School of Medicine was founded in 1988 by the merger of St Mary’s Hospital Medical School and Imperial College. Queen Elizabeth II established the Imperial College Business School in 2004.
Imperial College London specializes in science, engineering, business, and medicine. The main campus, where the majority of instruction and research are conducted, is in South Kensington. A second campus in White City offers a setting for business and innovation. Additionally, there are teaching hospitals spread out around London that are part of an academic health research center. Before becoming an independent university in 2007, the institution belonged to the University of London. With 140 different nations represented on campus and 59% of its students coming from outside the UK, Imperial has a very diverse student body.
According to Times Higher Education’s rankings based on the 2021 findings of the Research Excellence Framework, Imperial was placed first overall in the United Kingdom. 96.6% of Imperial’s research is classified as “world-leading” (66.3% received the top grade of 4*) or “internationally excellent” (30.3% received 3*) in the 2021 Research Excellence Framework. The REF discovered that 93% of Imperial’s computer science research was rated as being of the highest caliber, earning a score of 4*.
The institution encourages the commercialization of research, in part through its specialized technology transfer firm, Imperial Innovations, which has given rise to several spin-out businesses based on scholarly research. Imperial had a significant role in the development of fiber optics and the discovery of penicillin.
With more than 15,000 publications co-authored by Imperial and American writers over the past 10 years, the United States is the college’s leading international partner. A long-standing collaboration between Imperial College and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology may be traced back to the Second World War.
