London Interdisciplinary School ©2019

An open call for the exceptional

We're looking for brilliant problem-solvers who are passionate about tackling issues that matter to the world.

The admissions process

Applications for our 2020 Founding Cohort will open in Autumn 2019. You'll be able to apply to us directly - which means that LIS can 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.

Our Selection Day for shortlisted candidates allows 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. It's been designed in line with how the world's leading companies are recruiting their employees today.
