University has good conditions to study philosophy. Although you can clearly see that university is still in progress and the courses sometimes look not very well structured, in general it is a good place to be. read full review

Sebastian - January 2020

So far... its a university... I learn things that I came here to learn...

I could now compose a rather long rant on why this idea of a 'university experience' is not only damaging to the very idea of what higher education in supposed to be but additionally, in this case, has also undermined this very questionnaire and those like it. However, I will not bore you but merely mention that these sorts of questions are awful and perpetuate the ridiculous idea that one goes to university to party and not to try and live up to the name that we have so arrogantly given our species Homo sapiens (wise man)... This question should be removed. read full review
It’s been amazing as I can have that focused style of learning, I can email my lectures anytime and they are always willing to help. Having personal tutor meetings help with other issues I have too. read full review
I have been very impressed both at the welcome I received and the ongoing support that I have had academically and personally. The in-class experience is very good, with small groups, and the personal tutoring sessions are always constructive. There are a wide range of optional lectures available, which also provide a rounded experience. read full review

Jeremy Clivaz - November 2019

My university experience - although still continuing - has been well. At first, I struggled with getting used to the high tempo of the workload I needed to do (partly because of my course as well), but I have managed to do this. I am satisfied with my overall experience. read full review
There is absolutely nothing to criticise. Nothing. Even before formally enrolling, I was taken aback by the courteous and inviting attitude of those working at NCH. As my application was pending completion, and I was rather keen emulating a sloth in this process, I was gently reminded by a fine individual on the admissions team who really believed in the promise I had supposedly displayed. More so, I was offered a partial scholarship which sweetened the deal!

Upon attending my first seminar, I made fast friends with my classmates. We talk about anything and everything, and this is a far cry from the rather cold and aloof atmosphere that accompanied those I shared my learning with during my BA. I decried such hostility and so am pleased to find that there is none of that here.

The tutors are just the cream of the crop. I recall meeting one for an interview to determine the outcome of my application, and found that my anxiety quickly melted away upon being offered some tea and the promise that despite the intention behind the interview, it really was just a chat about a subject we both love. Recently, I also found I had botched the preparatory reading for a seminar - not too seriously but still an inconvenience. Rather than call me out on this, or ignore me, the seminar leader managed to integrate the research I had completed. read full review
