HISTORY

Imperial College London is a public research university located in London, United Kingdom. Its founder, Prince Albert, envisioned an area constituted of the Victoria and Albert Museum, Natural History Museum, Royal Albert Hall, and the Imperial Institute. The Imperial Institute was opened by his wife, Queen Victoria, who laid the foundation stone in 1887. Imperial College London was granted a royal charter in 1907. In the same year, the college joined the University of London, before leaving it a century later. The curriculum was expanded to include medicine after merging with several historic medical schools. In 2004, Queen Elizabeth II opened the Imperial College Business School.

The main campus is located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The university’s emphasis is on emerging technology and its practical application. Imperial’s contributions to society include the discovery of penicillin, the development of fibre optics, and holography.

In 2017, it ranked 8th in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, 9th in the QS World University Rankings, 22nd in the Academic Ranking of World Universities, and 9th in UniRanks ‘Ranking of Rankings’ of World Universities. In 2015, Imperial was also ranked the most innovative university in Europe, and in 2017 as the 5th most international university in the world.
