Opening in September 2021, the London Interdisciplinary School radically challenges a lot of assumptions within higher ed. As the first new university (with degree awarding powers) in Britain since the 1960s, their curriculum is designed around solving real-world problems. With faculty from Oxford and Harvard, Co-founder and CEO Ed Fidoe discusses the need to teach skills employers want and their attempt to dismantle the traditional system - or at least offer an alternative to it.
