    Have to be honest, some courses at Imperial are harder, especially at the Masters level. MSc CS or Maths at Imperial takes over your life.

    Thank you for making this!! I really need to watch this. I will be starting at Imperial this October studying Chemistry. A random question. Do you hang your wet clothes in your room? I am an international student so I am unsure how washing & drying works

      HEy Jasmine, i don't recommend you do this because my encik in the army warned me that i would get pneumonia. Cheers :) Its definitely better to use a dryer

      Hey! Im glad this helps. I hung my clothes in my room because they shrink in the dryer. However, most people just use the dryer. I use a drying rack i bought on amazon. Lmk if u have any other questions! Or you can DM me on insta

    I have an offer to study mechanical engineering but I'm not sure if I should accept it as I don't know enough about what it's like to live in London as a student. Could you tell me what students do on weekends ect...? Can students afford the pubs and clubs?

    How seriously does Imperial take extenuating circumstances? For my predicted grades, I'm one grade off the minimum requirement for electrical engineering, but I had mental health issues in year 12 which meant I didn't do as well as I hoped. Does Imperial care about extenuating circumstances at all? Could I still potentially get an interview, give that the course isn't that competitive and the rest of my application is good? Thanks!

      Hey Rodin,
      Im sorry to hear that you had mental health issues that you had to deal with which resulted in a score you didn’t want.
      Unfortunately, Im afraid this isn’t a question I can answer for you. Only admission will know and I believe you will have to email imperial yourself. However, If you have mental health issues you might be able to apply with disabilities, which will put you in a different category when applying? Im not 100% sure.
      I hope this helps and good luck with the rest of your application!!

    Hi, I'm going to be studying chemistry at Imperial too this October, and was wondering if you had any tips, and also how intense the workload is compared to A Levels?

      Hey Adam! Congrats man! Well my tips are definitely try to meet new ppl and just have fun. However, you still need to find time to study. I did the American highschool system which is easier than A levels and i spent about 3-5 hrs a day studying the first term. If you did A levels you’ll definitely be fine. You’ll get an average of 2-4 hrs of lecture a day so be prepared to spend an extra 30-60 min to absorb your materials.

    Hey I am planning on applying to imperial for my Msc, any tips and advices for my interview and in general

    • The Ethan Experience
      The Ethan Experience  Hace 2 años +3

      Hey I think for your interview just relax and if you’re applying masters and continuing on what you’ve been learning in undergraduate then I think you’ll be fine.
      Just be prepared to be asked some questions and try to work them out to the best of your ability. Some questions you’re not supposed to get right but they wanna see your process of solving the questions!
      Hope this helps!

      @ally well, I haven’t yet started looking out for accommodations. But, afaik, accommodations in London are indeed the most experienced in England. Plus, I am an international student from Bangladesh, haven’t been London or any London schools so far.

    • ally
      ally Hace un año

      @Sohailul Islam Alvi right now im thinking of firming oxford instead because they do general engineering and im still not totally sure what I want to do. im thinking of putting imperial down for my insurance but im a bit worried about the accommodation costs. did you find living in london stressful financially?

      Hey. I would say I have not really experienced any racism here besides only one occasion but that wasn’t even racism exactly..hard to explain. However, in general London and Imperial is super diverse. People are generally very open minded!!

    Hey I'm gonna be starting Chemistry as a 1st year next month, very excited! Just wanted to ask, how much and what kind of physics do you learn in the course? Also, which ancillary module did you take and how did you find it in comparison to the core modules?

    • The Ethan Experience
      The Ethan Experience  Hace 2 años

      It wasn’t very interesting, a lot of bio and i think it would have been better to take an easier course to reduce my workload. A lot of ppl who took M&P have taken physics and maths A levels so i think it was generally fine. Didn’t hear much complaint, the grade distribution was a lot better than med chem.

    • Raphael S
      Raphael S Hace 2 años

      ​@The Ethan Experience Thanks v much. I don't really know much about either of the chemistry ancillaries atm but the horizons do look pretty interesting. what made you dislike the med chem option? Also what was the general impression surrounding the maths and physics option regarding the teaching and content?

    • The Ethan Experience
      The Ethan Experience  Hace 2 años

      I'm glad you're excited about joining Imperial chemistry :) if you ever run into any problems feel free to reach out.

    • The Ethan Experience
      The Ethan Experience  Hace 2 años

      I took medicinal chemistry instead of maths and physics. Medicinal chem was my worst module, I really didn't enjoy the content. I would recommend doing something else in the horizon course for your ancillary, such as language, business or philosophy. However, if you're interested in the ancillary chemistry modules then you should try them!

    • The Ethan Experience
      The Ethan Experience  Hace 2 años

      I didn't really need any physics to be honest. I have only taken the basic physics course in high school and I was fine. The only thing you need is probably wavelength and frequency equation which will be used heavily in spectroscopy.

    Two questions:
    1. Do you guys get to interact with other students from M.Sc or MBA
    2 what's the cost of internet there?

    • The Ethan Experience
      The Ethan Experience  Hace 2 años +3

      Umm not in the course but you do get to meet MSc and MBA students in societies and clubs. Cost of internet is free, if ur asking about sim card then it depends. I recommend THREE they offer unlimited DATA

    Hey, thanks for this video. I am from latinamerica and i really don't know what means A-levels. I am still in high school, i graduate of school next year and i want to apply to Imperial, un Chemistry degree. I search and there are like two types somenthing like Bsc? And MsC? (Sorry If write it wrong, My English is not good). It will very helpful for me if You reaply this message. I have more questions anyway... Also, which type of grades i need to apply? The stuff of A-levels. I am thinking on traveling to UK mostly for July,to search that university and other one which is the UEA thats on Norwich, maybe You can tell me anything else i can do when i arrive there. Thanks a lot for reading this and sorry If it's too much (I am 16, on July also i will be 17)

      A-Levels are the exams taken by most 18-year-olds in the U.K. before they finish high school. They determine whether you get into certain universities or not. Most people taken 3 subjects whilst some do 4 and they are measured using the grading system A*-U (A* being the highest grade you can achieve)

    • The Ethan Experience
      The Ethan Experience  Hace 2 años +1

      So you will be applying to BSc which is a bachelor degree when you apply after highschool. You need to check what grades your school is using and if imperial accepts that grade. I don’t know what grading system you’re doing right now so I can’t answer that. Traveling will be harder right now due to covid but I would suggest just walk around the schools that you are interested in.
      In addition, there are english exams that you’ll have to take like IELTS and TOEFL to get in, so you might want to study English as well before you apply. An adequate english level is crucial to your studies in university.

      Hey dw you’ll be fine. Like i said if you’ve gotten in you should be able to complete this journey. Ik things seem daunting but you shouldn’t worry about something that hasnt even happened yet. A lot of happiness comes from within, you’re bigger than your environment :). Do you mind DMing me on insta so i can send u my timetable? Sorry about that, i forgot to put it in the video.

    • Charlotte H
      Charlotte H Hace 2 años +3

      Thank you for your response :) Truthfully I’m really nervous about going to imperial, none of the students I’ve reached out to have responded to me. I’m not the smartest person it can take me a while to grasp something, I don’t want to sacrifice my happiness for the imperial name. I’m not doing chemistry but civil engineering. Also you said in the video that you would show an example of your timetable but I didn’t see this. I would be really grateful if I could see please.😊
