Check out the list of notable Imperial College London alumni. Some of the notable Imperial College London students are Brian May, Alexander Fleming, Rajiv Gandhi, Cyrus Pallonji Mistry and Thomas Henry Huxley.

The Imperial College London belongs to the league of the world’s most popular educational institutions. The college was an initiative of the British royal family and its foundation stone was laid by the late monarch Queen Victoria, back in 1887. In the ‘Times Higher Education World University Rankings’ list published in 2017, Imperial College London was ranked 8th. The staff employed at the Imperial College London has consisted of several Nobel laureates and Fellows of the Royal Society. Renowned scientist Alexander Fleming, writer H.G Wells, musician Brian May and former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi are a few notable personalities who belong to Imperial College’s alumni association. Alexander Fleming is a biologist who invented the ‘Penicillin’ vaccine, which helps in keeping infections at bay. This path-breaking discovery didn’t bring laurels to just Fleming alone, but Imperial College London as well. Rajiv Gandhi, former Indian Prime Minister, was praised not just by his own countrymen but even other nations for his great governance. H.G Wells is a prolific English writer, who has penned numerous works of science fiction, such as ‘The War Of The Worlds’, ‘The Time Machine’ and ‘The Invisible Man’. He has also been felicitated with the prestigious ‘Nobel Prize For literature’ four times. Apart from academics the university is also popular for its notable alumni. The names of a few eminent personalities who have graduated from this university, will take you by surprise. Maybe it’s true that studying at Imperial College London enhances one’s personality greatly.
