The New College of the Humanities is an innovative liberal-arts university in the heart of Bloomsbury, London.
At NCH we offer personalised humanities degrees where you can choose what you study from a variety of humanities subjects including Philosophy, Politics & IR, History, Economics, English, Law, Art History, Creative Writing and Geography.
Our liberal-arts curriculum means you will study a combined honours degree comprised of a major subject and a complementary minor subject, so you can develop your curiosity in and understanding of more than one subject. Our small class sizes and our one-to-one tutorials offer students the opportunity to develop beyond the lecture by exploring their interests with our world-leading academics. This way, NCH students get both breadth and depth in their learning.
In addition to your degree, studying at NCH means you will also be awarded our unique Diploma, which includes courses in Critical Reasoning, Science Literacy, Practical Ethics, and LAUNCH, a professional development programme designed to equip students with skills for life after NCH.
NCH’s world-class professoriate includes world-leading academics such as Simon Blackburn, Sir Partha Dasgupta, Richard Dawkins, Daniel C Dennett, AC Grayling, Bettany Hughes, Lawrence Krauss, Steven Pinker, Sir Christopher Ricks, Adrian Zuckerman, and many more. This gives our students access to some of the world’s greatest thinkers, which is unparalleled at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
Founded just 7 years ago, NCH has earned a reputation as a world-class academic institution that is leading the way in UK higher education. In 2015, The Times described NCH as offering ‘bespoke higher education’ and as being positioned ‘at the forefront of a new era, the academic equivalent of space travel’, with our one-to-one tutorial system giving NCH ‘the edge on even Oxbridge’s one-to-two tutorial system in one crucial way’.
