What Happens After University

How Cumbria Supports Career Development

Our degrees are built around preparing your child for the future.

Whether your child wants to make a difference in the community, shape future minds, or start their own business, our courses revolve around vocational training and developing practical skills to help them achieve their dreams. Through work placements, in the field experiences, and volunteer opportunities, your child will develop the specialised and transferable skills they need to kickstart their career and stand out from the crowd. 

THAT'S WHY 9 OUT OF 10 OF OUR GRADUATES GO INTO WORK OR FURTHER STUDY WITHIN 15 MONTHS OF GRADUATING (HESA, 2020).

Global Partnerships

At the University of Cumbria, we pride ourselves on preparing our students to begin amazing career journeys. We do this not only with our outstanding student support and hands-on learning values, but also by introducing students and graduates to our impressive portfolio of partnerships. 

From UK-wide bodies such as the Department for Education, the National Trust, and Social Work England to local organisations including the Lake District National Park, the North West Ambulance Trust, and Tullie House, our students benefit from established relationships, whatever their chosen career.
