The NCH alumni network

At New College of the Humanities, we’re proud to be at the heart of a community of brilliant, entrepreneurial and enthusiastic graduates, academics and professionals who together make up the NCH alumni. The NCH alumni network demonstrates that the experience of joining a small, intimate college not only renders life-long bonds with peers and faculty, but also provides the foundation for global partnerships and cooperation.


The College organises drinks for its alumni on a quarterly basis. These usually take place at a pub local to the College, and one that alumni may have frequented during their student days. In addition, an annual alumni reunion party is held at the College during the spring. We encourage graduates and staff to join us at drinks evening and alumni parties.

These events provide a relaxed opportunity for alumni to catch up with old friends and to meet and network with the wider NCH family.
