Whatever course you embark upon at Ambleside, you’ll quite literally have an idyllic outdoor classroom on your doorstep.

As well as a good variety of modules and some really great lecturers, the opportunities seem endless. We’re always kept up to date on the latest opportunities on offer, including field trips both in the UK and abroad, public conferences and talks, and a vast array of work experience and volunteering opportunities.

BSc (Hons) Conservation Biology with Placement

Our Brampton Road campus is home to the university's Institute of the Arts with over 1000 full-time arts students. The atmosphere is friendly, with a creative environment that will help stimulate and develop your ideas. Our library specialises in resources for the arts, including a large collection of journals.

Cumbria’s just such a great place! The campus had a great space and a workshop, and it had its own personality – I liked the idea of working the way the course ran. There was just something about it when I first walked through the door. I came out after my interview and when I got accepted I felt so happy about it. When I got back I looked through my final choices and thought ‘I’m going to go to Cumbria’.
