About the College

Based in the cultural and intellectual heart of London, New College of the Humanities is a new and innovative university-level college. It is going through an exciting period of growth. Recent milestones include the College increasing its offering to over 60 degree programmes for the 2019 entry. It is currently expanding its degree offering into several postgraduate programmes, including a Historical Research and Public History MA, and a Philosophy MA, an Economics MA, and a Global Politics MSc. These expansions followed the 2015 introduction of degrees designed, taught and examined by its own academic faculty; the ability to sponsor international student visas; and the availability of government-backed tuition loans and maintenance loans. In 2018, New College of the Humanities became part of the global network of Northeastern University, which will present a number of new and exciting opportunities in the years to come, including the faculty developing courses for NU semester programmes and NUin. We expect the successful candidate to have a keen interest and willingness to contribute to the design and/or delivery of these.
