NCUK stands for Northern Consortium UK. Zamani college partners with 16 UK Universities: Aston Birmingham, Birmingham, Bradford, Bristol, Huddersfield, Kent, Kingston, Leeds, Leeds Beckett, Liverpool John Moores, Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan, Queen Mary, Salford Manchester, Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam to offer the NCUK International Foundation Year (IFY) to provide pre-university programmes for international students who wish to undertake further studies in NCUK partner universities or affiliated institutions.
The IFY programme lasts for one academic year and prepares international students for degree courses in a range of subjects, covering Humanities, Business, Science and Engineering. It provides four modules for students to study, comprising three subject modules and the Research and Communication Skills module which develops essential academic study, language and computer skills.

|Biology||Society & Politics|
|Physics||Research & Communication Skills (for all students)|
The IFY is designed to assist international students in meeting admission requirements in NCUK universities. It emphasises the development of independent learning, personal research, critical thinking and the academic skills required for further studies.
The final NCUK IFY grade is based on a combination of coursework contributing 30% and the examination 70%. Once students successfully complete the IFY, NCUK guarantees them a place on an appropriate degree course at a partner university.
