In an earlier post I said with reference to the New College for the Humanities (NCH)
As far as I know this will be only the second private university in the U.K.Looks like I was wrong. At the Adam Smith Institute blog Anna Moore writes
Once opened, the NCH will be the UK’s third private university, the latest in a trend that began with the University of Buckingham in 1976.A quick bit of research suggests to me that the third private university will be Richmond University. There are several other private degree awarding bodies including BPP University College, Ashridge Business School, ifs School of Finance, The College of Law and Regent's College.
