The Northern Consortium (NCUK)

The University of Salford is a proud University Partner of the Northern Consortium of UK universities. NCUK is a consortium of 16 leading universities dedicated to giving international students guaranteed access to universities and helping students succeed when they get there. Since 1987, NCUK has helped over 30,000 international students gain guaranteed access to university.

NCUK offers foundation and graduate pathway programmes, which are taught and quality assured by its global network of Study Centres around the world, with more than 50 Study Centres in more than 18 countries. If you pass your NCUK Qualification, you are guaranteed a place at an NCUK Partner University.

Students that are required to take foundation level study or a pre-masters programme before entering one of the University of Salford’s undergraduate or masters level degrees may want to take a preparatory programme at Salford’s English Language Centre on the University's campus or may want to take a preparatory programme in their home country at the NCUK centres.  Programmes  from both organisations will guarantee entry to the University of Salford as long as the preparatory programmes are successfully completed to the required grades.

To apply for one of the NCUK preparatory programmes, students should contact the local teaching centres. The application to the  University will then be handled by the local centre.  A full list of contact details can be found on the NCUK website. NCUK also has a dedicated University Admissions and Placement Services team, who will support you at all stages throughout your university application process.
