New College to Run Degrees Without Subjects

A new higher education institution is opening in London next autumn which will not teach traditional separate subjects – but will be able to award its own degrees.

The London Interdisciplinary School is opening in Whitechapel, east London.

It is claimed as the first institution since the 1960s to start from scratch with full UK degree awarding powers.

The private college will be partly owned by the UK government, which is part-funding the project.

Students will all take a combined arts and science course aimed at teaching problem-solving skills.
