The admissions process

Applications for our 2020 cohort are now open. You can apply to us directly - which means that LIS will be an additional option alongside your five UCAS choices.

We welcome applications from all subject backgrounds, whether you've specialised in STEM, the arts, or humanities. We don't set a minimum bar for grades. Instead, we'll review your grades in the context of your educational, family, and personal background, to understand what you've achieved given your starting point.

All applicants will be invited to a Selection Day. These allow us to go beyond your grades: it's a chance for you to tell us what motivates and inspires you, and to show us your potential to tackle complex problems with imagination, energy, and intelligence. These days have been designed in line with how the world's leading companies are recruiting their employees today.

    Selection Day

    Selection Days will take place in London and will include a face-to-face interview so we can understand how you think. You don't have to prepare; just be yourself. It's a chance for us to get to know you, for you to get to know us, and hopefully to learn more about yourself along the way.

  • LIS Discovery Day


    We will award conditional offers that take into account your personal background, circumstances, and individual learning needs. If successful, you will be part of our Founding Cohort starting in Autumn 2020.
