University Of Cumbria Welcome Week

Welcome to the University of Cumbria. We look forward to ensuring you get the extra help you need before beginning study in the UK. We understand that starting university is a major change for anyone, let alone starting life in a new country. That’s why we have set up a Welcome Week to help get you adjusted to living in the UK, as well as beginning university. You’ll get a full introduction to your course, look at learning and teaching methods in the UK and get help adjusting to life away from home.
