Geoffrey Lee : Manager (Policy Strategy), Ministry of National Development, Singapore


“Coming from the food paradise that is Singapore, my greatest worry was that Netherhall did not even serve a proper bowl of rice, which is anathema. For did not Our Lord say, Man does not live by bread alone? (I forget what comes next, but He must surely have referred to rice.) But God put me in Netherhall to learn this lesson – it is not what you eat, but who you eat with that truly matters. The years have gone, but fewer days have passed than the times I have looked at my dinner and thought – I would give this all up to break bread with all my friends from Netherhall again.”

Year/ Course: 1 year (2009-2010), BSC in International Relations, London School of Economics:

Prakash Singh : Assistant Professor of Economics, Amherst College, Amherst, Massachusetts, USA (since July, 2011)


” I loved my 6 years in Netherhall House where I made friends for life, honed my work ethic and had fun at the same time. Netherhall House fosters intellectual excellence, artistic freedom and above all, the spirit for doing good by building a principled, idealistic and trusting community. During my time at Netherhall, we took part in invigorating debates, curious quiz shows, warm get togethers, public lectures by statesmen, fiesty cricket matches and walks to nearby Hampstead Heath. Coming from India, Netherhall was a home away from home and the clean, well planned and beautiful rooms in one of the best neighborhoods in London were a luxury. It has had a huge role to play in who I am today.”

6 years – 2005-2011. Completed final year of BSc. Economics at LSE, followed by MRes. Economics at LSE (2006-08) and PhD. Economics at LSE (2008-2011).

“Netherhall was more than just a residence for me; it was a life changing experience. I built friendships that will last a lifetime and learned more than I could have ever imagined. It was a complete support system for my stay in London and allowed me to develop intellectually, morally and spiritually. The get-togethers, dinners, talks and philosophical discussions have no doubt made me a better individual for which I am indebted to Netherhall. It is truly more than just a place to stay and I hope that it keeps on continuing its unique traditions in the service of society.”

2013-2015, Political Economy, King’s College London

“At Netherhall you will find yourself at home. I like the “get together” (7:30 PM every evening). People here like to express and respect opinions on all topics, so that you could understand different cultures. Besides, I like the food at Netherhall. Please do not skip the Sunday’s breakfast.”

2012-2013 at City University London majoring in Political Communication.

Paul-Francoise Schira : Civil service fast streamer in France.


“The Netherhall House experience does not cease to nourish my professional and personal life. Professionally speaking, Netherhall House has taught me open-mindedness, rigorous studying, and a critical sense of analysing the question “why” on top of the question “how”. Personally speaking, Netherhalll House brought me spiritual tools to develop my faith, a balanced lifestyle, and a valuable thirst for true friendship. I would recommend it to any young man wishing to enjoy London.”

2008-2009 King College London, School of Law.
