Long Business Description:
We are the University of Cumbria, a place where people are at the heart of all we do. Where enriching the lives of our students, staff and the communities we serve means we make a difference that goes beyond the classroom.
We inspire, engage and add value to people’s lives. Through every stage of life to every part of being. Our focus is on people, community and society. We know the things we teach will be the things that change lives.
This year, the university has been ranked 35th out of 126 higher education institutions in the student-informed survey ‘WhatUni’ – a massive rise of 60 places. Our focus on providing our students with the skills and real-life work experience to equip them for the world of work means nine out of ten of all of our graduates are employed or in further study within six months of graduation, and of those, 82% are in graduate-level jobs or study. These two accolades combined make us one of the fastest improving universities in the UK in 2018.
We are committed to the future success of our graduates to secure a great career, that’s why many of our undergraduate students also now receive a free postgraduate course as part of their studies with us. This not only provides our graduates with an edge on their CV, but also raises their confidence and ability to add true value within their chosen career.
We may be a young university, but our ambition is huge, and the institutions that came together in 2007 to create the University of Cumbria have a proud history of empowering our students with the tools, attributes and opportunities to maximise their potential be more than they thought they could be. We are a thriving, lead player in delivering professional higher-level learning to meet the demands of an ever-evolving workforce and emerging markets. We do this by making the most of our three most valuable assets people, place and partnerships to become a catalyst for economic well-being for our region, nationally and internationally.
Our professional and practice-based focus is one of our great strengths. We are passionate about sharing knowledge and have confidence in what we do, our students, learn from some of the best in their field. We care and are committed to engaging and inspiring future generations. We embrace inspiring teaching, lifelong learning and creative innovation, enabled and enriched by the research of international standing.
What makes us really distinct from other universities is our location and our role in contributing to the vibrancy of these places. Our five campuses at Ambleside – within the Lake District World Heritage Site, Carlisle, Lancaster and London connect us with landscapes, culture and specialist industries no other university can offer.
We have a strong reputation being rank 2nd in the UK for Law, top 20 for psychology and achieved between 90 to 100% student satisfaction across the majority of our courses.
