Why choose NCIUL

International Network: our student and staff can benefit from accessing our international network, within campuses in Italy, France and Spain. Whether our students are interested in deepening their knowledge through contacts with our international staff (e.g., for Dissertation or other research projects), or in being part in a non-compulsory placement and internship opportunities during their studies or once they have graduated, they can count on NCIUL’s international network to achieve their goals.

Continental academic tradition mixed to the UK HE innovation: our students can benefit from the rigorous continental academic tradition, made of consistent curricula and materials to study, mixed with the more innovative trends in teaching and learning usually used in the UK Higher Education sector. As an example, our distance learners will benefit from a consistent number of pre-recorded lectures, which work as a flipped classroom exercise for their participation to live online seminars and focus groups. This method ensures student’s engagement in learning, as well as progression rates and the benefits from peer assessment and group work.

Low Student to Academic Staff ratio: our Staff recruitment strategy guarantees a 15:1 Student to Academic Staff Ratio for our Undergraduate programmes and a 10:1 Student to Academic Staff Ratio for our Postgraduate programmes. Thus, our students can benefit from small class sizes and personalised attention from their lecturers (e.g., timely feedback and more possibilities for discussing improvement and additional support).

Personal Tutors: our students can get access to personal tutors in the London Campus, plus the multi-lingual staff in our call centre are available to help either over the phone or via email.

International Internship opportunities: internship and placement opportunities at NCIUL are not compulsory and NCIUL only facilitates those students interested in joining the programme, whether during the summer, while doing their Business Research Project or once graduated. Among other options, our students can contact specialised recruitment agencies that work in partnership with NCIUL or be part of internship and placement projects organised by partner universities in many different European countries.
