Lancaster is a thriving student city. It's a place that has really thought about how to make student life amazing. With Atkinson's delectable Coffee, comic shops, vintage clothing fairs, and The Dukes, a unique theatre attracting top talent from across the UK - there's so much to experience!
WHAT DOES THE NEXT STEP FEEL LIKE?
The most satisfying thing about being a teacher is that moment when a student shouts out, 'Oh, Miss...I get it, I get it!' That's it, those few words right there... coming to the University of Cumbria enabled me to reach my potential and go into a wonderful career. Expect to be motivated to become the best that there is.
