We are a growing, multi-campus university home to over 10,000 students and our mission is to provide you with skills to set you apart in the jobs market.

Whatever you want to be, whatever you want to achieve we offer a wide range of degrees across health, sports, social work, teaching, business, law, science, conservation, outdoor studies, arts, creativity, tourism, policing and more.

We Are Cumbria

We are Cumbria. We are passionate about our people, our place, and enriching our world and community. We are made of life-changing experiences, amazing memories, and world-class teachers who want to help you boldly become who you are meant to be. We are Cumbria. We've got you.

What makes us different

We have amazing graduate employment opportunities, a close community where our expert academics know and support you for who you are, and iconic locations across UNESCO world heritage sights in the Lake District and famous English cities.

Five specialist departmental areas offer a range of flexible, multidisciplinary courses. You'll be taught by experts who are not only academics but have a wealth of experience in the world of work and are committed to helping you achieve your ambitions.

We take pride that our students feel that they're a name and not a number. Lecturers get to know you and your unique skills and contribution so you won't get lost in a crowd.
