Established in 1987, NCUK is a consortium of leading universities dedicated to giving international students guaranteed access to universities worldwide and helping them succeed when they get there. Our main office is located in Manchester, UK with other key staff members being located in China and the wider Asia region.

With a diverse set of qualifications available as well as opportunities for qualified students to progress directly to university, NCUK supports thousands of students each year on their academic journeys. As our qualifications are recognised by universities from within the NCUK Global Network and beyond, we are able to give students the best start and guarantee access to an NCUK University upon successful completion of their studies with us.

NCUK qualifications are designed in collaboration with our universities and combine high academic standards, with language, study, social and cultural skills. Students can study in their own country or at one of our Study Centres in the UK and Europe, taught by quality assured partners whose standards are as high as our own. Our qualifications are backed by fantastic levels of service and support, and an outstanding track record with over 35,000 students progressing to university since our inception.

Students who progress to NCUK Universities have a choice to study one of thousands of different degree courses, and enabling them to progress to enriching careers following graduation or obtaining further degrees.

Our Partners

NCUK qualifications are delivered at a multitude of Study Centres across the world allowing local students to study in their home countries before continuing their studies at university.
