One of the goals of The Program is to foster and develop a strong community.  NCH and staff collaborate to plan weekly free or low-cost activities, which vary year-to-year.

In the past, students have participated in the following types of activities:

  • Trip to the British Museum
  • Cook-off competitions to showcase cooking skills learned during the semester
  • Open Mic Night to show off talents and cheer on others


The public transportation system is the easiest and most efficient way to get around London.  While navigating the Tube and bus system may be an initial adjustment, students will learn the routes quickly. Metro passes are called, “Oyster Cards” in London and provide access to both the London Underground and the public bus system.
