Philosophy, Politics & Economics BA (Hons)

The study of PPE enables students to use three of the most important approaches to understanding the world in which we live, and to develop a wide range of skills that are critical for many careers and pursuits.

At NCH you can choose one main subject from Philosophy, Politics and Economics. This will be your major and 50% of your degree studies will be in that subject. You will then study the other two subjects as minors, and these will each make up 25% of your degree studies.

You'll be taught through weekly one-to-one tutorials, small group tutorials and lectures with fewer than 30 students, ensuring that you experience an exceptional level of teaching and support from our academic staff.

You'll combine your PPE degree with the NCH Diploma, which is designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge to ensure that you flourish and enjoy a successful and fulfilling life. The diploma comprises studies in Applied Ethics, Critical Reasoning, Science Literacy, and LAUNCH, our professional development programme.
