Graduates from the University of Cumbria can bring a whole host of new skills to your business. As a university with a long history of work–related degree courses, we make sure our graduates understand what is required of them in the work place and that by the time they have finished their time with us they are work ready and in a great position to contribute to growing and improving your business.
