    I have applied to the top 4 colleges of UK and got selected in the third and fourth college. I was more than happy. I explored both the colleges online and selected Imperial College because it suits me the best and had the courses of my choice. I applied for admission through the online system by making a payment of £50.

    The imperial college has one of the highest-ranked Civil Engineering departments in the world. It excels in the field of research in Transportation, that is my area of specialization at the Ph.D. level. In specific, research in public transportation has been at its level best in Imperial for many years. Since public transportation is seen as one of the major pillars of sustainable mobility for the future, this is precisely why I chose to study at Imperial.
