NCH-Northeastern Global Strategic Partnership
As part of Northeastern University (Northeastern)’s global network, NCH has a global outlook and enjoys wide-ranging support from a highly ranked US teaching and research institution, while retaining its academic independence as a UK higher education institution. Furthermore, with its campuses in Boston, Charlotte, Seattle, Silicon Valley, Toronto and Vancouver, Northeastern’s network opens up enormous opportunities for NCH students and graduates, including the possibility of studying in the USA.
The College also welcomes international students from around the globe converging in London to study a range of Northeastern University programmes, including NU.in and GEP, which in turn, broadens students’ global outlook and networking opportunities during their time at the College.
The Accelerate: Pre-College Program at Northeastern is a two-week all-inclusive, residential experience in the vibrant, global community of Northeastern University in Boston, USA during the summer before a student enrols at NCH. The programme gives you the opportunity to participate in immersive, experiential, non-credit bearing courses with Northeastern University’s acclaimed faculty and other talented high school students from around the world.
In the past, courses titles have included:
- Design Discovery
- Experiential Entrepreneurship
- Humanity in a Digital World
- Law & (In) Justice
The programme is worth £4,500 but prospective undergraduate students starting their degree in 2021 can secure their place for free by accepting their offer to study with us by their personal deadline. The only costs covered by the student are flights, transfers and travel insurance.

Located in Boston, Northeastern University leads the way in redefining library service in the 21st century. Resources include over 800,000 e-books and over 100,000 electronic journals. The Northeastern University Library provides the resources and services which enable students to ignite interests, spark creativity, and forge new discoveries.
NCH students now gain access to Northeastern’s global network of more than 3,000 employers, which can provide experiential learning opportunities leading to both personal and professional development.
Double Husky Scholarships
NCH graduates achieving a first class or upper second class undergraduate degree may receive preferred admission to graduate programmes at Northeastern. In addition, all NCH graduates accepted onto one of 100 eligible degree programmes at Northeastern are eligible for a 25 percent tuition fee discount through the Double Husky Scholarship.
Inter-Institutional Academic Research
The global strategic partnership between NCH and Northeastern creates opportunities for inter-institutional research between faculties.
Mapping Black London in World War II
Dr Olly Ayers, Senior Lecturer in History at NCH, is currently working on a project using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) techniques to chart black activities in wartime London, offering new visual methods of examining the historical connections between the histories of anti-imperial protest, US civil rights and British racial politics. This project is funded by a $10,000 grant from a joint initiative with Northeastern University.
This half-day event, held at NCH in Hilary Term 2019, on the topic of ‘Understanding Brexit’, was a joint venture of NCH Politics & IR faculty and Northeastern Political Science faculty members.
The N.U.in programme gives Northeastern students the opportunity to add an international edge to their studies with a semester abroad. The N.U.in Programme is very different from a traditional study abroad experience—engaging students immediately in the experiential learning model they will follow throughout their years at Northeastern.
Global Engagement Programme
The Global Engagement Programme (GEP) allows Northeastern students to spend a year at NCH, teaching you the business skills necessary for a rewarding career as well as an appreciation of the human experience. GEP teaches students to view employees, suppliers, and shareholders not just as business associates, but people with personal, philosophical, and psychological needs, allowing students to foster the important habit of looking at business decisions in creative ways.
