Hi there! I am Yufeng, President of the 39th ICSS Executive Committee! Firstly, I would like to congratulate you on your admission to Imperial College London! Imperial is among the most reputable universities in the world and boasts one of the most international university communities. The Singaporean community here in Imperial is large and close-knit, and we can’t wait to make you feel right at home!
Just a year ago, I was planning to travel to London to commence my studies at Imperial College London. However, the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted my plans and I ended up spending my first year in Singapore. Nevertheless, the various activities that ICSS planned made sure that I was able to have an active student life and foster close bonds with my batchmates! We seek to do the same with all new freshers of 2021, to help you make that transition to university less daunting and to forge lasting friendships within our community. At ICSS, we aim to always be your home away from home. Throughout your time in London, we will always be here to be a pillar of support whenever you miss that fried carrot cake and nasi lemak from back home!
I’m sure you can’t wait to start this new adventure! To help you a little, we have created an ICSS Freshers’ Welcome Package just for you! This package consists of a wide range of events that are held both in Singapore and London, to facilitate your transition and get to know other students studying at Imperial! It also consists of our Ultimate Sotong Guide, which is an extremely detailed guide that helps you with all the nitty-gritty details before departing for and upon landing in London!
