The Northern Consortium (NCUK)

The University of Salford is an owner-member of the Northern Consortium of UK universities (NCUK).  The NCUK has been delivering pathway programmes leading to degrees at the member universities for almost 25 years. Over 792 students have progressed to the University of Salford on completion of NCUK programmes since 1987, and have successfully graduated from the University and gone onto careers around the world.

Programmes are delivered at teaching centres across the world and include:

  • re-undergraduate foundation programmes (students join the first year of Salford’s undergraduate degrees)
  • International diploma programmes (normally students join the second year of Salford’s undergraduate degrees)
  • Pre-masters pathway programmes (students join Salford’s Master degrees)

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

Delivery centres are currently operating in the following countries: China, Ireland, Japan, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, South Korea, Sri Lanka, UK.
