Imperial College London is renowned for extending the boundaries of knowledge and unveiling brilliant discoveries. Its teaching and research attracts academia of the very highest international quality and a reputation for excellence.

Friends of Imperial College gives you a chance to explore and discuss the great advances being made in these fields with the very people making them. You can also meet our lecturers after events for an informal discussion over refreshments.

Whether you are a member of the public, a local to the College, a student of any age, a student at heart, come along to a Friends event and hear from the best. You do not need to have any connection with Imperial College London to come to our events, beyond wanting to learn more!

School groups, school students and A level students are also welcome to our public lectures. We have a number of FREE school tickets per lecture. A teacher can book to bring a group FREE by providing us the name of the school and the number of students attending. You can see how to do this on each public lecture page.

All our public events are accessible.

Know a lot, know a little…if you have an enquiring mind and want to know more then come to our events!
