SUBVERTING THE PARADIGM OF EDUCATION. New Shores International College is an innovative and dynamic college which delivers the best in inter-disciplinary education in a unique, and uniquely stimulating, way. Our cross-disciplinary approach educates students to think both widely and deeply, allowing the intellect to explore beyond the confines of a traditional education. Graduates leave New Shores as well-informed and rounded personalities, able to apply wide-ranging analytical & creative skills and aware of the wider world and their own potential to operate within it. The New Shores educational philosophy distinguishes between “expanding the mind’s powers” and “storing it with knowledge”. Naturally, our students are required to learn and retain a body of data, but, crucially, they are also taught to apply critical analysis and creativity to whatever that data might be. Distinctly from other institutions, we at New Shores regard a college education as a time of discovery, where curiosity must be encouraged and the questions should never stop coming. We want our students to be courageous and imaginative, and we recognise that that also means failing – and then learning from failure – in order to achieve even greater success. We demand from our students that they interest themselves in subjects outside the narrow curriculum imposed by more traditional learning establishments: at New Shores, we believe artists learn from scientists, scientists from managers and managers from artists.
