Imperial College Personal Statement Length

Once you have entered the contact details of two referees and submitted your application form, your referees will be sent an automated email explaining how to submit their reference to Registry. If any referees have problems submitting a reference using the online system then they must contact the Engineering Admissions team in Registry.

Your references must be academic otherwise your application will not be assessed. The email addresses stated for each referee in your application must be their official institutional email address . References from personal accounts such as Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, 123 etc will not be accepted by Registry and your application will not be assessed by the Department. Please note that references must come directly from your referee, any recomendation letters uploaded by you will not be deemed to meet our requirements.

If your referee does not have an official institution account, then a hard copy reference should be sent to the Engineering Admissions team in Registry instead.

Postgraduate Taught

The selection process for postgraduate taught courses is continuous from mid November, when applications first open, until August, except when courses become full and close at an earlier date. All applications are given careful consideration. Applicants can normally expect to receive a decision on their application within six to eight weeks of receipt of a complete application (including references). However, we advise applicants to check the relevant department's web page for specific information. 

While the specific selection criteria vary by course there are certain general points which are equally applicable to all departments. 

Postgraduate Research

Selection for research programmes occurs throughout the year and all applications are given careful consideration. Some programmes may have specific deadlines, for example when combined with a one year Master’s programme. Some departments and schemes will restrict applications to particular times, either due to funding requirements or because the students are all admitted at a specific time. Students should look at the Departmental websites or the websites relating to that particular scheme for detailed information.
