What we do

Friends organise public lectures and Member-exclusive events exploring extraordinary discoveries and developments taking place at Imperial College London - with the very people making them!

Inspire the next generation of young students

Enthrall, entertain and educate

As part of our mission to share a passion for knowledge, Friends offer school groups free places at our public lectures in order to promote an interest in science amongst school children. Some lectures will be relevant to the curriculum, some will simply enthrall.

Whether you are a member of the public, a student of any age, an Imperial alumnus, we have events for you!  You don't need to have any connection with the College to come to our events - just have the desire to learn more.

Bring important scientific developments to the widest possible audience

Know a lot, know a little…if you have an enquiring mind and want to know more then you’re with Friends!

Enable College students to realise their full potential

The revenue raised provides sufficient surplus each year to make a donation to the President's Scholarship Fund at Imperial.
