Northeastern University London

Northeastern University London (formerly New College of the Humanities) offers innovative undergraduate degrees that provide students with rigorous and in-depth study of their subject area, while developing a range of transferable skills and gaining real-world experiences.


Undergraduate programmes include courses in art history, business, computer science, data science, economics, English, history, law, philosophy, politics & international relations, and psychology, as well as interdisciplinary thematic pathways including curation, sociology, STEM, and sustainability.

Students enjoy the flexibility of creating their own academic pathway from a wide range of elective courses, designed to contextualise their studies. Experiential opportunities, which are credit-bearing and co-designed with partners in industry, community, research, and education, offer the possibility of gaining additional real-world and international experience.


Degrees are taught through small seminars, lectures and tutorials, giving our students unrivalled opportunities to explore the curriculum in-depth, at a level of engagement with other students, tutors and lecturers that is second to none.  Our courses are challenging and enriching, and our students are rewarded with personal development and enhanced skills.
