We are delighted to announce a new partnership with NCUK to offer NCUK’s International Foundation Year programme from September 2020, with an initial focus on the Business Pathway.  Students wishing to study Business will now be able to benefit from the unique tutoring environment at Padworth for this one-year course.

NCUK is unique in UK higher education – it is a consortium of leading UK universities, including 6 Russell Group universities – dedicated to giving international students guaranteed access to universities worldwide.  Qualifications are recognised by NCUK’s own universities and by most other universities across the UK, including many in the Russell Group, as well as by universities internationally.

Students who successfully complete the NCUK International Foundation Year qualification gain guaranteed access to one of the 16 NCUK universities, namely: Aston University, University of Birmingham, University of Bradford, University of Bristol, University of Huddersfield, University of Kent, Kingston University, University of Leeds, Leeds Beckett University, Liverpool John Moores University, University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, queen Mary University of London, University of Salford, University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University.
