International Students Win NCUK Awards


Four international students have received awards at The Northern Consortium’s (NCUK) annual Student Prize Award Ceremony.

Three students from China, Mingcheng Jiang, Haoyun Tang and Peiqi Yang, each received a £5,000-a-year scholarship, offered by Manchester Met as part of NCUK’s £1 million Anniversary Scholarships scheme. Mingcheng, Haoyun and Peigi are all studying within the Faculty of Business and Law, completing undergraduate degrees in Accounting and Finance, Business Management and Events Management, respectively.

Daichi Iwasaki from Japan was also recognised at the ceremony, receiving one of six £1,000 NCUK Centre awards for academic excellence. Daichi progressed onto the MSc Advanced Physiotherapy programme in September 2016.

The annual award ceremony is organised to showcase the achievements of students who have completed NCUK pathway qualifications and are commencing their degrees in the UK. 2016 marks an extra special year as dedicated university awards were also made as part of NCUK’s £1 million Anniversary Scholarships Scheme, making it the largest prize fund so far.

Our students were joined at the awards ceremony by Stephen Parkin, Director of the International Office, who said: “It is a great pleasure to see our international students being recognised by NCUK for their efforts and achievements. Each year NCUK provides the University with outstanding students and our 2016 intake is no exception. I wish these students every success as they continue their studies with us.”
