A warm welcome to our new students. I expect you have had a good break over the summer and are now ready for the next stage of your life to begin. We aim to give you a fantastic experience over the coming year. You will be working alongside some of the brightest and most motivated students from around the world and you will be taught by an exceptional group of internationally leading experts. You will be based in arguably the world’s best civil engineering department (the authoritative international QS league tables have us in first place for 2013) in one of the world’s most vibrant and interesting cities. Now you must take full advantage of your once in a lifetime opportunity. You need to strike a good balance between studying hard to fulfil your potential (make no mistake, our courses are demanding) and enjoying the company of your fellow students and life in London. Good luck for the coming year!
