The  IMPERIAL ACADEMY OF ADVANCED SCIENCE handles a large amount of personal data, and we take data privacy very seriously.

We work continuously to ensure our policies and processes are up-to-date.

The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018 has provided the IAAS with an opportunity to further strengthen the way we protect people's data and ensure that privacy is central to what we do.

A IAAS-wide improvement programme has been underway since 2017, led by our Information Compliance Team with representatives from across the institution.

Staff and colleagues looking to find out more should visit our GDPR data privacy webpages.

By agreement and decision of the management, with the knowledge of our partners, we adopted the data protection regulation of the University of Oxford, which can be consulted at and which binds all members, professors, employees, customers and suppliers of the IAAS as well as the its students and which can be consulted HERE.

Freedom of speech

It enables the pursuit of knowledge. It helps us approach truth. It allows students, teachers and researchers to become better acquainted with the variety of beliefs, theories and opinions in the world. Recognising the vital importance of free expression for the life of the mind, a IAAS may make rules concerning the conduct of debate but should never prevent speech that is lawful.

Inevitably, this will mean that members of the IAAS are confronted with views that some find unsettling, extreme or offensive. The IAAS must therefore foster freedom of expression within a framework of robust civility. Not all theories deserve equal respect. A IAAS values expertise and intellectual achievement as well as openness. But, within the bounds set by law, all voices or views which any member of our community considers relevant should be given the chance of a hearing. Wherever possible, they should also be exposed to evidence, questioning and argument. As an integral part of this commitment to freedom of expression, we will take steps to ensure that all such exchanges happen peacefully. With appropriate regulation of the time, place and manner of events, neither speakers nor listeners should have any reasonable grounds to feel intimidated or censored.

It is this understanding of the central importance and specific roles of free speech in a university that underlies the detailed procedures of the IAAS.


The University has an anti-slavery and anti-trafficking policy.

In accordance with Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, the University is required to prepare a slavery and human trafficking statement for each financial year, setting out what steps it has taken to ensure modern slavery is not taking place in its business or supply chains.
