University College for Interdisciplinary Learning

UCIL provides a University-wide platform for delivery of interdisciplinary teaching and learning opportunities to all undergraduates. At the heart of UCIL are units that truly bridge disciplines, with many focused on big issues and societal challenges that can only be addressed by interdisciplinary approaches - for example, the digital revolution, globalisation and climate change. Cross-University teams of academics deliver many of the units. Interdisciplinarity is also achieved by students from different Schools and Faculties studying together, bringing their own subjects’ perspectives to a topic. On the way, students acquire essential employability skills such as team-working, cultural awareness, problem-solving, critical analysis and adaptability.
