Imperial College London is a public research university located in London, the United Kingdom. It was created by Prince Albert, the husband of Queen Victoria, with a vision for a cultural district. The Royal College of Science, Royal School of Mines, and City and Guilds of London Institute were combined to become Imperial College in 1907. The Imperial College School of Medicine and St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School merged to establish the new institution in 1988, and King Elizabeth II inaugurated the Imperial College Business School in 2004.
Imperial College is a business, technology, medical, and science university located in South Kensington, White City. It has 140 different nations represented on campus, and 59% of its students come from outside the UK, making it a very diverse student body. Prior to becoming autonomous in 2008, Imperial was part of the University of London.
