We are the University of Cumbria, a place where people are at the heart of all we do. Where enriching the lives of our students, staff and the communities we serve means we make a difference that goes beyond the classroom. We’re here to help you find your place with us.

Why us…

  • We offer outstanding employability prospects. In fact, we are #1 in the North West for employability (HESA Graduate Outcomes Survey 2020) with 9 out of 10 of our students going into employment or further study within 15 months of graduating and of those, 83% are in professional-level jobs.
  • We provide affordable on-campus accommodation that works out at £10 per night. Some of the most inexpensive in the whole of the North West.
  • We are in the top 10 in the world for our 'Quality of Education' and one of the top universities in the world for 'Gender Equality' and 'Life on Land' (Time Higher Education Impact Rankings 2020).
  • Our campuses are situated in great locations around the Lake District and we are the only UK university with a campus in a national park and UNESCO world heritage site.
  • We offer unrivalled financial support for students. We have a wide range of scholarships, bursaries, grants and funds available throughout your studies with us.
  • Our researchers are world-leading. You’ll learn from some of the best in their field.
