This summer, ORA welcomes students from around the world to the wonderful environment of Imperial College London, in the heart of London. Over two weeks, students will have the opportunity to explore their chosen subject in detail, under expert guidance from ORA’s teaching faculty, whilst living and studying in the UK’s bustling capital city. Imperial College welcomed its first cohort of students this weekend and so far the programme has been splendid!
Following an induction and welcome talk over delicious refreshments, students got the chance to have free time around the city and then play some ice breaker games on arrivals day on Sunday. This prepared the excited students for a week of jam-packed lessons and activities!
As with all of our campuses, a team of dedicated Counsellors took the students at Imperial on an adventurous tour of London, soaking up the beautiful rays of sun along Southbank and the River Thames. The best way to spend a summer’s evening in London, while getting to know fellow course friends along the way and seeing the iconic sites in this amazing city.
The students here are taking range of subjects including Business, Law, Architecture and more, while complementing their studies by living on the state-of-the-art university campus; living and dining like a true Imperial College student.
As the sun set yesterday evening, students were inspired by the England v Columbia football match to have a kick-around of their own, in a Grade I-listed major park in Central London: Hyde Park. You can see from the photos that students here have really enjoyed their first few days at ORA, with smiles all round!
Coming up for the rest of the first week (the days are going by so quickly already!), are more intellectually stimulating experiences such as a debate hosted by one of our guest speakers, cultural excursions to the Saatchi Gallery, and of course the end of week party – with a 1980’s theme!
Stay tuned for more updates from the students at Imperial College London, you won’t want to miss out on what ORA has in store!
