Founded in 2011 by British philosopher AC Grayling, the founding slogan of New College of the Humanities was ‘elite but not exclusive’. It offers a unique education that aims to provide an intensive learning experience, achieved through regular one-toone tutorials, and tailored, liberal arts-inspired degrees taught by globally respected academics. In 2015, NCH’s degree results of the first year of graduates surpassed the national average — 30 per cent achieved a first class degree in a humanities subject and over 83 per cent achieved a 2.1. Students have gone on to a range of high flying graduate schemes, such as those of Deloitte, Clifford Chance and the British Council. The Times described it as ‘the academic equivalent of space travel’.
