NCUK End of Semester One Exam Week

The Northern Consortium (NCUK), which was established in 1987, is a unique organisation founded by 11 leading UK universities to offer “pathway programmes” to students who wish to study at undergraduate and postgraduate level in the UK and globally. The programmes are developed in partnership with their owner universities and are quality assured by them. So far, over 23,500 students have progressed on to degree programmes through their world-class programmes.

The Clubclass NCUK International Foundation Year Programme – Business Studies Stream is a modular 30-week course, which has been designed and developed by NCUK and provides a pathway to a wide variety of undergraduate degree courses for international students who have completed their high school education. Once they successfully complete the course they are guaranteed a place at a leading NCUK University or, are eligible to apply to a university of their choice. This course is accredited in Malta at an MQF Level 4, which means that this qualification is referenced to the EQF -European Qualifications Framework level, so it is recognised throughout all European countries.


Our international students on the Clubclass NCUK International Foundation Year Programme – Business Studies Stream have just finished their first semester and sat for their End of Semester One Exams in the following subjects:

Business Studies
English for Academic Purposes (EAP)

Each subject-module tutor prepared summative coursework assessments and tests that were designed to enable the students to demonstrate the achievement of learning outcomes across the individual elements of the programme. This allowed the students to experience the types of assessment methods used in Western undergraduate programmes. The range of their assessments included: essays, research projects, reports, presentations, oral examinations and unseen written tests.


The coursework assessments and tests were double-marked by tutors and submitted for review and moderation by NCUK subject specialists. The NCUK syllabi provide the assessment guidelines, marking criteria and feedback sheets that are used to assess students. Students will receive feedback informing them of their performance and progress from their tutors in the second semester. The marks they receive will help them to decide which degree programme/University they should apply to. Guaranteed Conditional Offers of places on undergraduate course are issued subject to a student’s performance and feedback from tutors. NCUK is able to guarantee placements on suitable degree courses for all students who successfully complete their programme due to the robust quality assurance procedures which are under the direct scrutiny of the eleven founding universities that form NCUK.

Feedback from these tests and coursework assessments will also enable students to further develop and practice the coursework and examination skills on which they will be summatively assessed at the end of the second semester. The final examinations are set by NCUK and will take place at the end of the second semester during the test week to be held between the 6th – 17th June 2016.
