Handsome/Beautiful Super Scholars in Imperial Col

文 匿名

During President Xi's visit to London, October,2015, he asked to visit two universities in the UK,one of which was the Imperial College - a member ofthe UK G5 BRICS universities, together with Oxfordand Cambridge are called the "three pillars" superuniversities, and is also the Alma Mater of the straightA student and good-looking actor Aarif Lee.When Aarif was 18 years old, he was acceptedby the London Imperial College. At that time, hemajored① in physics, not music.But Aarif’s life in the Imperial College was noteasy. In the interview ② , he said: "In the first year, Ialready planned to tell my parents that I might notgraduate. You could imagine that waste not pleasant.It was not only a waste of time but also a waste ofmy parent's money. I said to them that my dream wasmusic anyway, and I had already signed a contract soI'd rather concentrate on writing music. They said Icould wait to see the results first. Finally, the resultsturned out to be good! Then I gained confidencein the next year and it was not difficult for me tograduate in the third year."

As the benefit of the British education system andthe open and relaxed atmosphere ③ , Aarif formed aband with other overseas students when he was inBritain. He laughingly called their band the 'London U'. If he hadn't become an actor, he would probablybecome a musician.

By the way, let's take a look at the London ImperialCollege, or simply known as the Imperial College.Founded in 1907, it is a London-based public researchuniversity. In the 2015 QS World University Rankings ,the Imperial College tied the University of Cambridgefor second, next to the Massachusetts Institute ofTechnology (MIT). The Imperial College is a member ofthe G5 Universities (other members are the University ofOxford, the University of Cambridge, the London Schoolof Economics and the University College London).

2015年10月,习大大访英期间,点名要参观英国的两所大学,其中一所就是帝国理工学院——英国G5金砖院校,与牛津大学和剑桥大学“三足鼎立”的超级学府,也是颜值爆表的学霸男神李治廷的母校!

李治廷18岁的时候考上了英国伦敦帝国理工学院,攻读物理专业,而非音乐专业。但李治廷的求学之路也不是一帆风顺的,接受采访时,他说:“我第一年已经打算告诉爸妈可能毕不了业,你可以想象,那并不是什么光彩的事情,浪费时间又浪费了家人的钱。我对他们说,反正我的理想是音乐,都签了合约,不如我就好好写歌吧。他们说,先看看成绩。结果成绩出来,原来很好哎!第二年就有了信心,第三年毕业也不是那么难。”

得益于英国的教育体制和宽松开放的氛围,在英国留学期间,李治廷跟当地的留学生组建了一个乐队,他笑称他们乐队是 London U 乐队。要不是做了演员,他很可能成为音乐人。顺带科普一下吧:伦敦帝国学院(Imperial College,London),又称帝国理工学院,简称帝国理工,成立于1907年,是一所位于英国伦敦的公立研究型大学。在2015年QS世界大学排名中与剑桥大学并列排名第二,仅次于美国麻省理工学院。与牛津大学、剑桥大学、伦敦政治经济学院、伦敦大学学院并称为英国的“G5 超级精英大学”。
