New College of the Humanities
New College of the Humanities-Overview

Founded by philosopher A C Grayling in 2011, the award-winning New College of the Humanities (NCH) is one of the UK’s leading providers of undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses in humanities subjects.

NCH is small in size, with fewer than 300 students, but not in stature. It was created with a big mission: to disrupt the UK higher education system by offering a highly-personalised, liberal arts education, designed to produce well-rounded, highly employable graduates.

Boasting one of the best staff-to-student ratios in the UK, NCH is renowned for its small group and one-to-one tutorial methods of education, which supports students’ intellectual development.

In 2019, the college merged with Northeastern University, a highly ranked U.S. university. The partnership has enabled the college to develop and grow, whilst still retaining its academic independence. The partnership also offers many opportunities for students, including opportunities to study abroad and access to a global network of academic and employment opportunities.

The college currently offers on-campus Masters degrees: MA Historical Research and Public History; MA Philosophy; and MA Philosophy & Artificial Intelligence. It also offers a two-year fast-track LLB (Hons) with International Legal Studies (Senior Status), specifically for graduate students wishing to pursue a career in Law.
