With 97% of graduates going on to employment or further study within six months of graduating, you can feel confident about finding your feet when your studies have finished. The university also offers a range of routes into Higher Education for those who have the ability but not necessarily the grades for degree study. The University of Cumbria was established in 2007, drawing together the major colleges and institutes from across the region, but has a history of teaching and learning that traces its roots right back to 1822. Set over campuses in Ambleside, Carlisle and Lancaster, with additional sites in Barrow, London and Workington, students enjoy the friendly, close-knit communities and the character, history and amenities of the busy towns and cities nearby. The North West campuses also benefit from excellent transport links, with direct rail services to major UK cities and Manchester International Airport within easy reach. With around 10,000 current students, and a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes on offer, it’s an exciting time to come and start your future at the University of Cumbria.
