About Newbold

Our story, our vision, our history.

Our Story

Newbold College of Higher Education was founded in 1901 to train church workers and ministers. Today, Newbold is the largest Adventist higher education provider in Europe.

Since Newbold was established we have been committed to developing autonomous learners who do not simply reflect the thinking of others. We offer courses in Theology, Business Management and Humanities for students pursuing a combination of studies in Business Studies, English Literature, History, Media Studies, Fine Arts, Psychology and/or Religion. Within these fields, we offer a range of undergraduate, postgraduate, short courses and study abroad programmes. Students can choose to study full-time, part-time, on-campus, off-campus, in intensive mode, or a combination of these. Our class sizes are small, giving students more one-on-one-time with our highly-respected, internationally renowned Adventist lecturers.

Adventist College

The College is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, which makes us a member of an educational community that includes over 7,800 educational institutions which operate across 145 countries and comprises over 1.8 million students worldwide. We are a student-centred, inclusive and innovative learning community that values Spirituality, Service to others, high-quality Learning and Teaching, and the opportunity to Nurture each of our staff and students.

The College is overseen by the Trans-European Division of the Adventist Church, and our primary recruitment efforts are focused on the geographical region of Europe that the College serves, with secondary efforts in wider Europe, followed by the US and South America. We are proud of the diversity within the College community — both culturally, through the approximately 50 nationalities culturally represented on campus — and spiritually, with worship opportunities available to meet any of our staff and students wherever they are on their spiritual journey and whatever their worship style.
