Why should our students settle for a traditional degree at university when the future is fast-evolving?

The London Interdisciplinary School’s curriculum thinking has transformed the ‘what’ and ‘how’ of university study, making it ‘cutting edge’ in terms of learning and degree content.

School and college leaders are shaping the futures of sixth-form students. However, we should all stop to consider how the constantly evolving world impacts their higher education decisions.

The London Interdisciplinary School (LIS) offers an answer with its groundbreaking curriculum model, with FREE taster programmes for schools.

Interdisciplinary: The Future of Learning

What does interdisciplinary mean? Interdisciplinary involves interleaving multiple subjects to form learning activities, inviting fresh perspectives and enhanced comprehension.

Traditional teaching and learning concepts are merged with new approaches and thinking. This ensures that learning is at an optimum level, both in terms of retention and understanding; interest and motivation.

Simply put, this approach empowers students to design a degree reflective of their unique interests and aspirations

Our students found it truly valuable and engrossing – school leader, Godolphin and Latymer School

The benefits of an interdisciplinary curriculum

Imagine having the ownership of your degree to mould it to your specific interests and learning needs?

How would that look for your students?

It’s important for school and college leaders to consider what pathways they can offer their students to keep them engaged with education, tailoring curriculum and degree qualifications to suit their needs.

Today’s challenges demand multifaceted thinking. LIS promotes such problem-solving skills by venturing beyond a single-subject focus. The freedom students possess, underpinned by a flexible and adaptive curriculum framework, helps students to become highly engaged and multifaceted thinkers.

Students delve into complex issues in sustainability and inequality, for example, engaging with diverse disciplines in economics or neuroscience, and participating in internships with top organisations.

At LIS, students graduate with a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences (BASc) in Interdisciplinary Problems and Methods.

Enrichment opportunities for schools

LIS offers FREE enrichment sessions for secondary schools to introduce students to this exciting learning approach. Activities range from exploring interdisciplinary learning and its role in solving complex issues to tackling inequality through an interdisciplinary lens.

Students benefit from new problem-solving skills, access unique study opportunities, and consider various career paths. Plus, it encourages stronger collaboration among school departments!

This free programme offers a comprehensive insight into complex problems, interdisciplinary learning, and careers.

It’s also worth noting that the LIS is the first institution in 50 years to have degree-awarding powers! They have also attained top marks in each area of academic standards and qualities by the Office for Students.
