Imperial College London is one of the world’s greatest universities, renowned for its ground-breaking research, talented community of staff, students and alumni, and its international reach. Our mission is to achieve enduring excellence in research and education in science, engineering, medicine, and business, for the benefit of society.
The College was founded in 1907 in South Kensington, bringing together nineteenth-century institutions including the Royal College of Science, the Royal School of Mines, and City and Guilds College.
From its location in this great cultural quarter, Imperial provides one of the world’s best educations in STEM subjects for more than 19,000 students, over half of whom come from overseas, reflecting its status as the UK’s most international university. Its alumni and members also include 14 Nobel laureates and three Fields Medalists.
In 2022, Imperial College was selected as University of the Year in the Sunday Times Good University Guide. The College was also awarded University of the Year for Student Experience 2022, recognizing the significant increase in investment in learning and teaching, including the development of a world-class hybrid educational experience.
Imperial invested over £7m in improving teaching spaces across all its campuses within the last year alone. This sits alongside a sustained level of investment in student wellbeing throughout the pandemic, including generous levels of hardship funding, and financial training support for the shift to digital learning.
It is in this context that we are seeking to recruit our next Vice-Provost (Education and Student Experience). As Vice-Provost you will be responsible for the delivery of the College’s learning and teaching strategy across our four faculties. You will be responsible for leading the delivery of the College’s strategic aims for the provision of a world-class education for its students, the enrichment of its student experience, and to ensure that an ‘Imperial education’ reflects the College’s dynamic and enterprising culture.
The incoming Vice-Provost (Education and Student Experience) will be a collaborative and strategic individual who will play a critical role in the leadership of the College as a whole, as well as owning delivery within their own portfolio. With a deep understanding of the rapidly evolving higher education landscape, they will have a strong track record of delivering an excellent education and student experience, and steering positive change in a complex, high performing university. They will be distinguished and internationally recognized in their field, and ready to join the executive of a world-leading university.
