Careers at The London Interdisciplinary School

At LIS, we have built a university that will give students the skills to go and tackle some of the most complex problems that we face in the world.

Students won’t be tied to the library. They will put their learnings to work through paid internships at some of the UK’s top organisations including Virgin, McKinsey, Innocent Drinks and the Met Police.

The LIS curriculum cuts across disciplinary boundaries, equipping students with knowledge and methods from across the arts, sciences and humanities.

Multifaceted real-world problems, such as childhood obesity, knife crime and the ethics of gene editing are placed at the heart of the degree. Students start with a problem and break it down to identify the different knowledge areas required to understand and analyse it. They then learn the methods needed to take action along with the skills to enable them to amplify their impact.
