For the next coming weeks, we will have students from the Arts and Sciences (BASc) course taught at University College London (UCL) presenting their truly interdisciplinary work on our blog.

We launched this blog series as we feel that this unique programme is very much in line with the passion and ideals of AXNS. For this reason we want to offer a platform to increase awareness of this unique course in the UK and get public exposure for the students' innovative work. We are convinced that our network of artists, scientists, curators, technologists and funders— established over the years AXNS has been working—will make for an engaged, interested and inspired audience.

UCL’s Liberal Arts course was first held in 2012 with the aim to graduate students with a breadth of knowledge, capable of working across the disciplines in our increasingly interconnected world. It allows students to incorporate both arts and sciences specialisms. Students choose one of four pathways: Cultures, Health and Environment, Sciences and Engineering, Societies. Alongside the pathways, students study core courses that encourage them to link traditional UCL subjects in new ways, and explore the conceptual and methodological differences between the arts and sciences.
