Small by design, NCH London offers a vibrant, collegiate community delivering broad and academically rigorous degree programmes, designed to equip graduates with the combination of skills and knowledge that are increasingly desired by organisations, employers and society.

Following the grant of Taught Degree Awarding Powers in February 2020, the College is expanding its portfolio by developing interdisciplinary degree programmes, which combine its emphasis on the humanities with the exploration of complementary scientific subjects.

Our experienced and respected faculty are passionate about teaching and research. Teaching through small seminars, lectures (see below), small group tutorials and (one some courses) one-to-one tutorials, provides our students with unique opportunities to explore the curriculum in-depth, with a significant level of engagement with other students, tutors and lecturers Our courses are challenging, enriching and offer our students further personal development and enhanced skills.

Lectures at the College take a variety of forms, depending on the learning outcomes they seek to foster. Some focus on the dissemination of ideas, some on the demonstration of skills and approaches, and some involve more active group participation (for example).
