Supporting students as they start life in the business world
Bright Futures provides financial support to students at the University of Cumbria undertaking internships or work experience relevant to their future career. Bright Futures is linked to the Skills Development element of the University of Cumbria Employability Award, Career Ahead, whereby students need to undertake 100 hours extra-curricular activity, for example, volunteer/paid employment, coaching, mentoring, caring, student ambassador work etc.
The aim of Bright Futures is to assist students in improving their personal and professional development by allowing them to take up critical experiences they may otherwise not be able to afford and providing life-changing experiences. Bright Futures will support our four guiding themes and enable us to continue to provide a sustainable and solid base for all our students to benefit. Your support is crucial.
