Parents' guide

University is a wonderful and exciting next step in life for your son or daughter. These pages provide useful information to help you prepare together for their higher education experience.

Why choose the University of Cumbria?

We have a number of friendly and intimate campuses and sites in Cumbria, Lancashire and London. Our small class sizes allows our lecturers to really get to know your child. All our courses focus on employability, and our great range of student support services will make your child’s time with us a happy one, with help available when needed.

All in all, that’s the University of Cumbria Experience.

Open Days

Our open days are a great opportunity to find out about the course your child is interested in, get familiar with our campuses and speak to current students and staff about what it's like to study here.

Parent and Carer Twilight Sessions

Our parent and carer twilight sessions are designed specifically for parents and carers to help them support their child through what can seem very daunting and stressful application process. This is the perfect opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about University.
