New College of the Humanities is located at 19 Bedford Square, in a Grade-I-listed Georgian townhouse. You’ll find an array of cafés and supermarkets on nearby Tottenham Court Road. You’re also a few minutes’ walk away from Oxford Circus and Covent Garden.
Regular one-to-one tutorials with NCH academics provide a focus for your independent learning - honing research skills, powers of analysis and argument, and writing. You will work closely with an expert in your subject to explore in-depth the topics that interest you.
Seminars, which take place in groups of up to five, enable you to exchange ideas and learn from other students. Each week, you might prepare a presentation, reading or questions to bring to the discussion. Our liberal arts curriculum allows you to make connections across the humanities.
Small class sizes mean that our lectures are far more interactive than you might expect at other universities. Students ask questions and lecturers call upon students. This creates a learning environment in which you feel comfortable to say if you do not understand something and to express your opinions.
As a student at NCH your experience is personal, not anonymous. All our members of staff are friendly, responsive and easy to contact. The smaller scale of the College and our dedicated Student Support Team mean that, whatever your issue, there is always someone who will listen and offer support.
Just a three minute walk from the College, Senate House Library is the main academic library used by New College of the Humanities students. The library serves students at universities across London. Bloomsbury is London’s intellectual epicentre. UCL, SOAS and Birkbeck are our neighbours.
In addition to our growing range of clubs and societies, NCH students have access to club nights, a fully-equipped gym, fitness classes and a 33m indoor swimming pool through Student Central, formerly University of London Union. Student Central connects you to a community of 120,000 London students.
