Life at LIS
We handpick a diverse cohort of students who we believe have the highest potential to solve the world’s most complex problems
The LIS student experience

We know there’s more to life than studying and that a lot of what you’ll get out of your time at LIS will happen outside the classroom.

As an LIS student, you’ll be part of the fast-paced, intensive, and fun journey of building a new university. That means you’ll have a unique opportunity to play a key role in co-creating events and establishing clubs, societies, and traditions that future students will enjoy for years to come.

Student life

You'll have the opportunity to get involved in a number of diverse pursuits and activities at LIS. Our SXP team actively curates a broad range of events and activities that both complement your studies and help you develop new interests - and, have fun!

Clubs and societies
Fames nulla tincidunt purus

Some of our student-led clubs & societies are sports-based (football, climbing, boxing) and others are interest-based (music, podcasting, exploring cultures, LGBT+, art).

If you want to launch your own club or society, go for it. We’ll provide you with the support to make it happen.

Support and wellbeing

We care about our students and want to help build your confidence and resilience whilst at LIS.

Our support offering includes drop-ins and 1:1 meetings with our Head of Student Support, mindfulness and yoga, and access to counselling and other local NHS services. We also offer workshops on managing stress, anxiety, sleep, organisation, and finances.

Our Head of Student Support is on hand to listen and provide advice, guidance, and support on any difficulty you may have.

What do our students think?

"After starting a 'monodisciplinary' degree, I was dissatisfied with the extremely limited scope of knowledge that was being taught. I stumbled upon LIS and discovered the degree that would give me the space to explore several academic interests, all while developing an invaluable professional skillset. No brainer."


Current Student

"You know when someone asks if you could have one super power, what would it be? LIS really feels like that superpower."


Current Student

"LIS is exactly the institution I hoped it would be plus more. The collected faculty has such diverse and overlapping sets of interests that I feel as though every field and method is only a message away. Without the dusty tradition and institutional sluggishness of my previous universities, the staff have been able to listen fully to students and their partners to build the university around the problems it solves. It's a really exciting place to be, and I'm thrilled to see how it continues to develop.”


Current Student

"During my time at LIS, I have grown to recognize the vital nature of interdisciplinary collaboration in unravelling complex problems. By forging connections between seemingly unrelated fields, we facilitate a more intricate and all-encompassing understanding of the world we inhabit and inspire the birth of positive change.”


Current student

"There is only so much you can be taught and so much you can read, but when debates or conversations start in our seminars, I am forced to think critically and am exposed to so many perspectives which is a very enriching experience."
