Key things to know

Non-UK students currently make up around 30 per cent of the NCH student body and are part of a truly international community. We understand how moving to a new country and culture can be a daunting prospect, all while trying to start your degree, so we offer excellent pastoral care and support throughout your application to NCH, and, of course, once you arrive. Here are some links to point you in the right direction:

Immigration and visas

We know the visa application can be complicated and daunting, so we’ve supplied helpful tools to guide you through the process. Please keep in mind that nationals of the EU and EEA, as well as Switzerland, do not require a visa to study in the UK. Head to our visa and immigration page for details on how to start your visa application.

NCH support in your country

Members of our admissions team regularly travel overseas to attend exhibitions and visit schools. We are always delighted to meet prospective students and answer any questions you may have. Please contact us if you would like us to visit your school or meet with you individually.

Scholarships and funding

Scholarships of up to £2,000 towards the annual tuition fees may be offered to international students applying for one of the new combined honours degree programmes, and who demonstrate exceptional academic ability and the potential to flourish at NCH.


A word from one of our international students


‘Coming from a small village in the Alps, I thought moving to London would be overwhelming. In fact I was surprised as to how smooth the transition was into the city. With the help of NCH students and student support, I found it very easy to move into the big city. London, although large, is an amalgamation of small villages, each with its own little charm.’
