Our Partners in Europe
Students wishing to study and work abroad in Europe may apply for the Turing Scheme. This is the UK’s global programme for students, launched in 2021, to replace the Erasmus+ programme.
The Turing Scheme provides universities with the funding needed to offer grants to students as they carry out an approved study or work placement with a partnered institution. Plus, for those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, the scheme provides additional funding. To find out more, visit the Turing Scheme website.

Our United States Partnerships
We are delighted to partner with two globally recognised USA Universities: State University of New York in Cortland, New York and Humboldt State University in California. Our students can study a range of subjects and modules here as part of a UK-based degree at the University of Cumbria.
State University of New York in Cortland
SUNY Cortland stands out as one of New York's top public universities, a medium-sized school that offers academic strength across 68 areas, with high quality of student life and a degree that pays back graduates.
Humboldt State University
Humboldt State students enjoy an extraordinary college experience, taking small classes taught by professors who know them by name. They live and learn in one of the world's most beautiful places-near ancient redwood forests, mountains and beaches.
Partnered Institutions In China
At the University of Cumbria, we welcome students from across the globe. Discover below a list of long-standing partnerships with institutes in China, with whom we enact a cultural exchange allowing UoC students to study abroad during their degree.
