Find out what some of our Imperial Family and Friends have to say about the College


Parent profiles

Markku and Heli Hokkanen

"We are extremely proud of what our son has achieved in his studies so far, and are looking forward to his upcoming years at Imperial. As we have been walking around Kensington and the Imperial campus, we have enjoyed the presence of history, and I know he will value it too. It would be fair to say that we feel a little bit envious of him!

A high quality education is nowadays just one factor in young people’s future success. While Imperial will allow our son to gain new knowledge and skills, we also value the opportunity he will have to become more international in his outlook, and to gain new friends from around the world."

"My son’s education is critical for his future, and will bring him a wide range of knowledge and build a solid base for his future career. Aside from Imperial’s academic record, we were attracted by its wonderful international community. I believe my son can make friends with top students from all over the world – a fantastic opportunity for him to broaden his horizons and experience various cultures. Furthermore, he can join the interesting clubs and enjoy participating in various sports, which must be fun!

Equally importantly, education can help to shape his character; at a top school like Imperial, we can expect that my son can grow as a real gentleman, with strong academic competence to match."
