Creating Real Life Change Makers

For the world changers, life-savers, crime fighters, and entrepreneurs, this is your campus, your home, your place of becoming.

Home to our courses in health, science, conservation, education, business, law, and policing, our Fusehill Street campus boasts an array of science labs and teaching facilities. Located a few minutes walk away from Carlisle Train Station, you are a short trip away from the stunning English Lake District, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most visited natural attractions and biodiverse areas in the UK.

While Fusehill Street has its sight set on innovation, its roots are set in history. Health and science have been practised and studied here since World War I when our campus was a hospital for the wounded, later becoming Carlisle’s Maternity Hospital. This tradition of scientific discovery and incredible health care continues today as we train the health carers and scientists of tomorrow.

And, while we have expanded to the fields of business, law, policing, education, science and conservation, our aim remains the same – we want to equip you with the skills you need to change lives, save lives and protect lives. To have more than just a career. To have a lifelong ambition and dedication to making a difference. And it all starts here, at Fusehill Street.
