Non final-year students have until 31st May to inform Registry if they wish to switch to an Imperial College degree, rather than remaining on their University of London degree.
College has made a document available describing the differences between the degrees. For most undergraduates it makes little difference, with no changes to examination procedures. Those on the PhD programme will see minor differences in manner of assessment, in particular the makeup of the final examiners. They will no longer have to submit a copy of their thesis to the University of London at Senate House if they opt for the Imperial option.
Students switching to Imperial College degrees will lose easy access to the University of London library, however a ticketing system administered in College will still permit access to those on relevant courses. The biggest changes will come to those using ULU clubs and societies, to which those on Imperial College degrees will no longer have access. Imperial teams will, however, continue to play in ULU cups and leagues.
Anyone wishing to change who has not yet done so should email Registry Support as soon as possible. It is possible to change the decision before 31st May, but not to change it back again.
