Northern Consortium UK

The University of Leeds is a member of the Northern Consortium of UK Universities (NCUK), which delivers undergraduate and masters foundation programmes at teaching centres in China, Japan, Kenya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Singapore, South Korea, Ireland and the UK. Each year, we welcome NCUK students onto our mathematics courses, joining more than 100 NCUK students who help make up the 30,000 students at the University.

Entry requirements
For all our single honours degree programmes (Mathematics, Mathematics with Finance, Actuarial Mathematics, Mathematics and Statistics and Mathematical Studies) and entry in September 2017, our offer will be:

  • AAB including A in Mathematics, or AAC including AA in Mathematics and Further Mathematics.
  • PLUS C in English for Academic Purposes with no less than D in all components (or another qualification satisfying the University's English Language requirements).

Note that applicants taking Further Mathematics receive both the AAB and AAC offers, and need to achieve only one of them. Entry requirements for Joint Honours degrees parented by the School of Mathematics will typically be AAB including A in Mathematics (but we may also require appropriate second subjects) and at least C in English for Academic Purposes with no less than D in all components (Joint Honours combinations with Economics, Management and Music all require a B in English for Academic Purposes with no less than C in all components).


Excellence in Mathematics:

For entry in September 2017, NCUK students applying for a single honours mathematics degree (G100, G101, G150, GG13, G1N3, GG1H or NG31) will be automatically awarded an Excellence in Mathematics scholarship worth £3,000 (one-off tuition fee reduction for the first year) provided they make Leeds their firm choice, they achieve their offer, and they obtain A*AA (with A* in Mathematics), or AAA (including Mathematics and Further Mathematics). Please note that this applies to students who pay fees at the international rate, only.

NCUK Anniversary Award (1 scholarship available for 2017 entry only, must meet the following criteria):

  • £5,000 for each year of the course as a fees reduction.

  • The scholarship will be paid in the January of each year of study. 
  • Payment after the first year will be paid on condition of you achieving a minimum 70% average mark over 120 credits (to include all compulsory modules) in the previous year of study. Payment will not be made for Year in Industry or BSc Study Abroad years as these are additional years of study.
