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.

About the institution

New College of the Humanities is based in central London, and offers an exciting liberal arts inspired undergraduate curriculum. All students undertake their chosen degree alongside a broad humanities diploma, comprising Applied Ethics, Science Literacy and Critical Reasoning, and LAUNCH, our extensive professional skills development programme.
Our combined honours degrees typically comprise 75% of your degree studies in a chosen major, and 25% in your minor. We offer majors in Art History, Economics, English, History, Law, Philosophy and Politics & International Relations.

We also offer the single honours Law LLB, as well as the popular trio combinations of Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) and Philosophy, Politics and History (PPH).

NCH students benefit from one-to-one tutorials led by inspiring, experienced academics, as well as small, interactive tutorials and seminars.


Number of Undergraduate Students


Average Undergraduate 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.

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.
