New College of the Humanities

It’s cheesy but true: while studying at NCH, you become part of the NCH Family, forging genuine connections with other students as well as your teachers.


Undergraduate Students:
Average 1st Year Class Size:



There are several types of classes you might encounter at NCH:
One-to-one tutorials are of course personal. But some courses are also taught via two-to-one or small group tutorials, with up to four students in a session. There are also seminars, which might be up to 15 students. The size of lectures depends on the popularity of a given module, and might be anywhere between 10-40. You would typically attend the NCH Diploma classes with your whole cohort, which varies year by year.

New College of the Humanities (NCH) is a world-class, university –level college in the heart of London. The College offers a unique liberal arts curriculum with highly personalised teaching in an international community.

At NCH, you choose a combined honours degree comprising a ‘major’ subject and a complementary ‘minor’ subject, from any two of Art History, Economics, English, History, Law, Philosophy, and Politics & International Relations.

We also offer Philosophy, Politics & Economics (PPE), Philosophy, Politics & History (PPH), and Philosophy & Cognitive Science combinations, Creative Writing, Data Science, and Psychology as minor options, and a single honours Law LLB. .

We hope to offer the Accelerate programme again in 2021, where our first year student benefit from a pre-College summer course at the Boston campus of the Northeastern University. We are also working to expand our study abroad offer, as part of the NU global network.

We encourage and support all our students to gain work experience while studying with us, be that via part time work, or summer internships. Our students have access to a personalised career provision, with our excellent careers team supporting them in making and executing their career plans. We do not currently accept work experience as a credit-bearing part of our degrees.

We welcome applications from intellectually curious, independent thinkers who will flourish studying our academically challenging and broader liberal arts-inspired curriculum.

UFP Grades


Our typical offer for undergraduate study is 35 points or 6,6,5 in HL subjects in the IB Diploma, or the equivalent. For the IB, the overall score of 35 points includes TOK and the Extended Essay, and students achieving our alternative offer of 6,6,5 in HL subjects must also achieve an overall pass in the IB Diploma for entry to our courses.

We do accept Foundation Year programmes. Each applicant at NCH is assessed on an individual basis through their application, a reference and personal statement, and we further get to know a student’s learner profile in our academic interviews.
