As a student at NCH your experience is personal, not anonymous. All of our staff members are friendly, responsive and easy to contact.
Lauren Gasser, our Student Support Adviser, along with the rest of our staff, helps you make the most of your time in London, and ensure that you are never short of things to do, either in the College or the city. Living and studying in London, the opportunities are endless, and include some of the best bars, clubs, restaurants, museums, galleries, concerts and theatres in the world.
We don’t just help you make the most of your social life. We are also here to assist with all of your questions and concerns. Whatever your worry, there is always someone here to help.
The small size of the College’s student body means that we have a close-knit and supportive community at NCH, and all students and staff know one another. Freshers' Week will throw you into student life from the day you arrive and you will make friends in halls, at NCH social events and during subject inductions.
If you stay in the College’s recommended accommodation, you will be sharing a flat with other NCH students in a building that’s home to students from a variety of London colleges and universities. This gives you opportunities to build strong relationships with other students experiencing the same curriculum and academic environment, while expanding your network of friends to include students from the many other colleges and universities in London.
You will meet with your designated member of academic staff at least once a term. They will advise you on your work, monitor your progress and offer help and support if any problems arise, whether academic or personal.
Our students register with a local GP surgery that specialises in young-adult health, and a friendly dental practice, both based in Holborn, just ten minutes from NCH.
Should any problems arise while you are here, the College’s Student Support team has received introductory training in counselling and are always available to talk. In addition, our local Gp practise has a specialised counselling service and students are encouraged to take full advantage of this. They also provide full information on servies including Nightline and the Samaritans. There is always someone at the college ready to listen, and the smaller scale means that there isn't the same sense of isolation and anonymity that sudents might sometimes feel at other universities.
