Living and studying in England’s capital city provides students with a wealth of culture, history and activities. Theatres, world-famous galleries, concerts, comedy, heritage sites, museums, jazz clubs and open-air cinemas are just the tip of the iceberg in this vibrant city, making it the perfect place for students to explore.
The city is also home to the UK’s financial and commerce sectors, the law profession, cultural organisations and creative businesses. Our campus sits within the financial district which is also home to St Paul’s Cathedral, The Shard and The Sky Garden. However, it’s not all high-rise buildings and sight-seeing, London also has over 3000 parks, making it one of the greenest cities in Europe. Hyde Park, Primrose Hill and Regent’s Park are perfect for students to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and relax for a few hours.

The Student Union, the NCHSU, is run by eight democratically elected union officers responsible for student engagement and developing the College’s social hub. They also plan and run regular social and extracurricular activities as well as providing support to student clubs and societies. There are many different clubs and societies for students to join, such as Film Society, Vegetarian & Vegan Society, NCHFC Football Society, etc.
