Delphine Legat, Politics & IR BSc with Philosophy
The material we learn is constantly changing and it’s really interesting to apply the theories we learn to our everyday life. The overlap between the courses makes interdisciplinary learning really useful.

LAUNCH provides you with the essential skills needed after university, both when looking for a job and once you enter the workplace. It ensures you're as focused on your future as you are on your degree.
Emily Hill, English BA with Philosophy
The academics are interested in developing you as a person and a critic which is hugely intellectually stimulating, especially when they help you develop your arguments further. I wouldn’t be anywhere else.

How to apply to NCH
Meet NCH's world-class faculty
Nils Zimmerman, Economics BSc with Politics
NCH provides opportunities to meet great thinkers. I could grasp revolutionary theories from Lawrence Krauss, or listen to the vice president of the ECB. This place makes you live your interests.
What is Economics like?
Ben Berry, Politics & IR BA with Law (NCH/Lond, 2016)
Moving away from home and into student halls is a big change. Will you miss your family? Yes. Will you miss your dog? Don't even get me started. But the transition can be even more daunting if home and student halls are 4,000 miles apart. From looking the wrong way before I crossed the street to burning my dinner because I got Fahrenheit and Celsius mixed up, there were certainly a few extra obstacles in my way when I moved to NCH.
But the brilliant part was that I was moving to NCH. The students are wonderful, the staff were welcoming, and one particularly lovely second year gave me a crash course in British English. Apparently 'Did you pull?' has nothing to do with how you opened a door. Leaving home is certainly hard, but if you're leaving for NCH, you'll be in great hands!
Living in the heart of London
Robert Howell, History BA with English
I’ve learned that the study of history is not for the faint of heart: you must learn to be bold, curious and daring - not an easy task - but you will be nurtured, encouraged and supported every step of the way by an intellectually reflective and personally generous faculty.

Paula Erizanu, History with Art History (NCH/Lond, 2015)
Ethics opens up ways in which philosophers have thought about complex decisions we make everyday. We’ve thought about collective and personal identities, as well as our acceptance of torture.

Studying with a cup of tea in the Thinkery (Philosophy room) in our beautiful Georgian town house generates an intellectual and studious atmosphere that is difficult to find anywhere else.

Every NCH student has the opportunity to give back to their community. Whether it's volunteering at the local bookshop or food shelter, mentoring young children, or raising money for charities. To see NCH putting their hand up at fundraising events is a great sight!

Frequently Asked Questions
Lizzie Hughes, English BA with Philosophy (NCH/Lond, 2015)
The smaller classes mean that conversations across theories and texts thrive and differing opinions are encouraged with one another. It also means that we can develop relationships with our lecturers, in turn tailoring the lessons to our needs, rather than a syllabus.
To describe the lectures as lectures is to limit them to what is normal, but at NCH the time spent with our lecturers is far more than that; if anything, it is extraordinary.

Soila Apparicio, Politics & International Relations BSc with History
Science, before university, never quite intrigued me. This module doesn't make me feel that just because I study politics I can't have an educated opinion on cognitive scientific thought.

Rory Goss Keddie, Philosophy BA with History (NCH/Lond, 2015)
I am working at Crowdmix, a startup that secured record funding for a UK startup pre-launch. The skills I learned from studying Philosophy and LAUNCH have been integral in helping me to perform well and contribute to the startup.
Graduate and alumni opportunities

You'll be armed and equipped to go into any sector of academia and beyond. Being able to say you've got a critical reasoning qualification shows that you are a conscientious and thinking being - something greatly sought after by employers.
Critical Reasoning at NCH
Thomas Bostock, PPE (Philosophy major)
The three subjects work together, and the structure of the NCH degree exploits this to the fullest. I've had the chance to learn some truly amazing things from some amazing lecturers, and spend time with some amazing people.

Tom Ward, English BA with Art History
Being taught to be creative was not narrowing but expansive. The inspiration it provided sowed the seeds for my first novel, which is now almost complete: some passages were written in those early classes, and some of the techniques taught I am still using today.
