This is the natural next stage having been granted our own Taught Degree Awarding Powers (TDAP) last year. As part of the process for University Title, the Office for Students (OfS) is consulting on the proposed new name.
As part of Northeastern University’s Global Network, the name we have applied for is “Northeastern University – London”, which is set to replace the name NCH at Northeastern Ltd as the registered name of the institution.
In the event that the regulator approves our application, the College intends to continue to use the NCH London brand for its undergraduate programmes for the foreseeable future.
This is a very exciting time for our prospective students, as it means that, while continuing to benefit from the exceptional educational experience for which NCH London is renowned, you will benefit from the international reputation of the Northeastern University name when applying for graduate jobs. Moreover, the name will enable the University to expand its reputation in London and beyond.
In addition, this will allow us – in the longer term – to introduce a wider range of mobility opportunities to allow our students to both study and work abroad as part of their degree programmes.
