It's been great! The small class sizes at NCH make for very interesting, interactive and in-depth learning. Personal contact with faculty increases your chances of understanding topics and faculty are always willing to talk outside of class hours. PPH is such a well-coordinated course, and the subjects I study complement each other very well. Overall my experience has been very fun, with a lot of work, and endless interesting opportunities.
Amazing. Beautiful building in Central London, with a private garden and plenty of space to study and relax.
Very good! In tutorials, a member of faculty will review and comment your work with you, individually, and guidance is always offered. My uni offers councelling and group therapy sessions.
Perfect, lots of shops around and easy to commute to
I love 1-1 tutorials and seminars, and the interest the faculty have in teaching and guiding students. I don't dislike anything.
LAUNCH and Careers program
I have had a great university experience so far- the quality of work I am now able to do thanks to receiving a lot of constructive feedback has made me more confident.
The university is able to provide great on and off-site study areas as well as great access to academic journals.
The university is strong on both fronts.
The transport links to the university are great. The only downside of the location is that it is expensive to transport.
The small class sizes, as well as one on one tutorial sessions, encourage great discussion about the subject matter- creating a great learning environment.
A portion of our course is dedicated to employability and the transferable skills we learn throughout our degree are highlighted by course guides.
It has been a really positive experience. Lecturers could not be more helpful, and they are all really passionate about their subjects which makes you want to do well. Have really enjoyed it, and progressed massively
Very good, access to large University of London library and the Historical research institute as well as JSTOR
Amazing - the history deparment especially are brilliant. They go above and beyond to help you progress, and help with looking at masters courses too. There is a careers service too to help find jobs and internships which is really successful
Nearesr accomodation is a 10 min walk away. 3 supermarkets within a 10 minute walk of the College. The College is adjacent to Tottenham court road so there's plenty of shops, literally could not be nearer
The small class sizes mean your lecturers know you by name - you get a tutorial and detailed feedback for every single essay you write which makes it so much easier to progress than the small amount of contact hours you get in other universities There's not an area I dislike in terms of the way either course is taught.
Sessions every week teaching soft skills eg. Public speaking, marketing. Also lectures in critical reasoning
It's been pretty good, I've enjoyed the staff, the way I've been taught and the content. University has been an almost overwhelmingly positive experience for me and I hope that continues
It's in depth and personal, very good sup3
I love the intimate, small class sizes because you won't get forgotten or swept under the rug I'd prefer if lectures were recorded
With the NCH diploma they teach us valuable transferable skills
Socially- it's been great meeting and getting to know everyone! All are happy to help and support with work or go for a coffee. Lovely environment with the teaching is second to none
Great 1-2-1, seminar and lecture rooms, but lacking in sports grounds.
Great location- in the heart of London. About 8 mins from Tottenham Court Road station. Amazing cafes and coffee shops around with Senate House Library being 5 mins away
Most- the 1-2-1 tutorials have helped my essay writing enormously, both stylistically and content-wise Least- Some lecturers only give summative notice 2 weeks before or don't upload content to moodle, due to lack of organisation
LAUNCH- practical but sometimes a little dull
I have loved NCH and am so happy that this is where I chose to study- the academic experience is hugely immersive and I love the interdisciplinary aspects. Students are close to their lecturers, who are very supportive, and it is possible to go above and beyond in a subject that interests you with lots of support. Socially, NCH is like a family within the huge field of opportunities that London offers, and there is lots of space to organise events and bar nights within the uni. I love being in London, and NCH is so well located- especially being so close to Senate House library, which is a fantastic place to study. NCH continues to grow and change with every year group, which is interesting and provides many opportunities for growth, both personally and academically. It's an interesting and dynamic space to study for an undergraduate degree.
They are ok- good access to Senate House Library, but if the student numbers continue to grow, the building will become too small. Also little/no access for prospective students whose mobility may be limited for some reason, so not the most inclusive space
Great in terms of academic feedback- especially with the Student Representative system. Also seems very good in terms of personal support, and the students representing Welfare & Diversity in the Union have been doing a fantastic job.
Great Students' Union and lots of scope for change- facilities are ok for a student body of the current size, but will be too small if student number continues to rise
Great local amenities and a great community, but it's location is not ideal for uni- at least an hour and a half commute a day
Great opportunity to create societies, and this part of NCH is growing quickly, but not the best place for someone who wants already formed societies and a huge range of things to do
I love how immersive and tailored our courses are- the small lecture sizes and combination of lectures, seminars and 1-1 tutorials mean that students get a lot of attention from academics and are able to really engage with the materials being taught.
This is one of the best things about NCH- our LAUNCH course is a unique opportunity to get a very involving and holistic preparation for the world of work- our CVs get individual attention, we learn marketing, numerical literacy and have to set up our own business.
I have had a great time at uni so far. NCH is a great fit for me and I love living in London. I feel independent here, but I also know that there is support available.
My uni offers mental health support, as well as weekly art therapy sessions and the ability to contact a personal tutor if needed.
The Student union represents the students well. There are different ages in the union.
My uni is fairly close to my accomodation and it is close to lots of shops and other necessities.
I like the fact that the courses are taught with only a few students. I don’t really dislike anything.
My uni has introduced LAUNCH- which helps students better their CVs, prepare for interviews and learn business skills.
overall I do enjoy my university experience. I do enjoy my studies, the professors are very helpful. University also always provides all the necessary help. The university could be bigger, we could have a bigger building and classrooms, there could be a private library and more possibilities outside course etc. language class
they are ok
very good support, tutors always provide feedback, very often is extensive. there is also a personal help in the universty
The university is in a good location, city centre, close to local amenities and 30 min from my house
Not many societies
I really like the 1-1 tutorials I don't like that sometimes not everything is updated online
The careers departament is very helpful, always engaged, helps to find work placement etc. Moreover, we have many workshops on how to improve our cv
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.
They are really good
The support is amazing! You can email anyone and they would respond to you ASAP and the help is endless
Yes it’s the perfect location for students
Really good- so may societies and if there is one missing you can start one easily
The most- very focused so can discuss matters in detail The least- can have more tutorials that isn’t just essay based
Amazing effort- we have so many talks we can go to, to learn more and so many help if we ask
So far it has been really good. Plenty of opportunities to socialise and learn. Great extracurricular opportunities e.g. to learn Latin. Additionally, living in London has been amazing, there's always something to do.
There are many communal kitchens available, however, they're small and suffer from fairly bad water pressure due to the building being listed and old. The JCR (student room) is great and well furnished but at times can be fairly packed.
Great personal support, there's someone available to reach out to if needed, know many people have used it successfully. Also, offers therapeutic sessions e.g. Art therapy, identity discussions and quiet walks. The academic support is very good, 1-1 tutorials each week and academics are always quick to respond to enquiries and emails.
I think they represent the students very well and are often improving communal student areas. Great at organising events
Yes, it's extremely central being in Zone 1 (Tottenham Court Road). Near anything needed and generally pretty accessible from anywhere around London.
The societies are less active considering the size of the university but there is still quite a few socials. It could definitely be improved but the university is fairly supportive in starting new ones. Definitely not much going on in terms of sports other than a football team
The 1-1 tutorials are massively beneficial in exploring ideas and seeing where you went wrong and the opportunity to write essays to consolidate knowledge. I've been pretty pleased with all of my courses. Perhaps, they could benefit from a little more structure. I think there's an expectation of having previous knowledge
Through the LauNCH program, there are great opportunities to get experience and knowledge in areas such as marketing, public speaking and delivering a new product. The university will also support you if you're undertaking an unpaid internship and require some additional funds. Many of the faculty have great links to individuals in the industry.
