Small class sizes, tailored learning support and flexible study options are just three of the many things that make studying at New College Durham University Center an incredible experience.

At NCD, learning is delivered in informal classrooms and class sizes are kept small to provide a positive and friendly learning experience. Emma Hickson was extremely impressed with the support she received while studying for a BA (Honours) in Early Childhood Studies.
“I feel like I wouldn’t have had the individual attention and support of a small class at a large university. It helped me get a top-notch degree.”
Employability is a high priority at college. Many of their courses are designed in conjunction with employers and include industry tours, internships and live briefings with clients. James Calvert, a film and media student, found that the contacts he made during his studies led him to land a job in the media industry.
“The best thing about my course was the experiences that were provided. Several industry experts came to talk to us or held meetings on zoom, so I got valuable insights on how to get into industry, so I was put in touch with a professional in the sector and I was hired”.
