History of the Northern Consortium and current group structure
The Northern Consortium was created in 1987 by a set of northern UK universities to collaborate in the delivery of educational programmes on a transnational basis, and to support the progression or ‘placement’ of students from those programmes into UK universities. The Consortium operated initially as a department of UMIST and was active predominantly in Malaysia.
The founding universities established a Charity in 1993 with the charitable purpose of the advancement of education.
In 1999 the Northern Consortium became active in China and, in 2003, established a wholly owned operating subsidiary, NCUK, to support its commercial operations.
