Imperial held its annual Science and Engineering Open Day on 30 June, attended by 2200 prospective students and 1200 parents. Reporter caught up with Mary Dai from Stratford Upon Avon who plans to study either Computer Science or Mathematics at university to gauge her thoughts about the day.
I was worried the Open Day would be full of people from Eton and I’ve been really surprised – it’s not snobby at all – everyone has been really friendly.
I was really impressed with the student presentations in the Mathematics lecture – you could see they really enjoyed what they did and wanted to tell us about it.
It’s a bit scary thinking about living with lots of people but the accommodation was really tidy and everything looked lovely and it didn’t feel like people would steal your food!
I was worried that I would need to know everything before I came to university but the tutors and academics seem so approachable and willing to help when topics are difficult.
Go to Imperial! A lot of people up north are worried about the idea of going to a city university and prefer a countryside setting but it is lovely here.
