"The diversity amongst the student body at Imperial has really opened my eyes to the world. I never before had the opportunity to interact with people of so many different cultures. Everyone has differing opinions and practices, which is great for creating innovative ideas. Receiving a President’s Scholarship from Imperial really helped me to buy all the essentials that were required for me to settle in another country."
