Exhibitions are integral to New College of the Humanities and our objective of widening access and building a high quality student body. We look forward to continuing to receive applications from the brightest students from across the UK
(PRWEB UK) 20 January 2012
New College of the Humanities (NCH) plan to award more than half of the ‘exhibition places’ for its September 2012 cohort on Wednesday 4 April 2012. These places are available to any candidate based on their academic merit alone.
Students who wish to be considered for these exhibitions to attend New College of the Humanities have until Sunday 11 March 2012 to complete their application via http://www.nchum.org/apply-now.
The exhibitions (worth approximately 60% of the fees), reduce the total fees to a net fee lower than many UK universities.
Professor AC Grayling, Master of New College of the Humanities, said: “Exhibitions are integral to New College of the Humanities and our objective of widening access and building a high quality student body. We look forward to continuing to receive applications from the brightest students from across the UK.”
Jane Phelps, Director of External Relations at NCH, said: “These places are based solely on academic excellence and a student’s potential to excel during their time at New College of the Humanities.”
NCH will offer assisted places – a combination of 100% scholarships which are means-tested and exhibition places to more than 20% of its first year’s intake in September 2012.
NCH’s innovative economic model combines scholarships and tuition fees. Its assisted places are a combination of the following:
- Scholarships: means-tested, cover the full cost of tuition over a full three year degree. These are based on academic merit and students applying for these places will need excellent academic qualifications (with at least one A* at A Level predicted).
- Exhibitions: available to any candidate, based on academic merit. Exhibition places are worth approximately 60% of the annual fees.
The New College of the Humanities Trust has been established as a registered charity in the UK and will offer additional assisted places.
New College of the Humanities will prepare students for University of London degrees in Law, Economics and humanities subjects including History, Philosophy and English.
Applications can be made via the NCH website http://www.nchum.org.
