    I have been working at Imperial College London

    Pros

    -Amazing location in the heart of London
    -Enthusiastic staff
    -Great reputation
    -Huge amounts of clubs and societies
    -A truly unique experience in the heart of London's cultural district

    Cons

    -Some of the teaching quality is poor
    -The University management seems to care little of what ordinary students think
    -It feels like this place is run like a business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the students and emphasise Imperial as a place of learning and free expression of thought. Get the careers service to find something good for me to do other than just shoving finance down my throat.

    Pros

    Teaching is great, relevant and can be applied in practical situations. Everyone is driven and this allows you to progress much faster and learn much more

    Cons

    Sometimes deadlines are set at the most inconvenient of times for a whole cohort. Having multiple project deadlines when the staff know that major job application deadlines fall at the same time is sometimes frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing and possibly start the course earlier
