About the institution
When Imperial College London was first founded in 1907 it was based wholly in South Kensington. The South Kensington campus remains Imperial’s main campus, but there are now eight others across London and the south east as well. A number of these specialise in medical teaching and are based around some of London’s main hospitals, such as the North West London Hospitals Campus. This reflects Imperial’s status as the only university in the UK to focus solely on medicine, business, engineering and science.
