Welcome to UCIL

Hello and welcome to UCIL. Whether you’re choosing your very first UCIL unit, or your fifth, we’re thrilled to have you on board this year.

Our interdisciplinary course units give you the chance to study something new as part of your degree programme. These units are designed to be accessible for all students, no matter what subject you’re studying. They give you a unique opportunity to work with groups of students from different disciplines and will equip you with skills to enhance your employability.

UCIL units are available to all undergraduates with a free choice, and this year we are delighted to announce that we are also offering our very first postgraduate UCIL unit: ‘Creating a Sustainable World: Interdisciplinary Applications of the Sustainable Development Goals.’

New units for 2021/22 are:

All our units are delivered by teams of academics and experts from within and outside the University. You’ll also have the choice to choose from blended, face-to-face and online learning, whatever your preference.

Our UCIL course unit convenors look forward to meeting you and, on behalf of myself and the whole UCIL team, we hope that you enjoy studying with us.

Prof Cathy McCrohan, UCIL Academic Director
