At University of Cumbria, our aim is to engage, challenge and encourage students to develop their own thoughts and opinions and to explore their ideas through reading and independent research and discussion with classmates and tutors.  At the same time the University offers award winning student support to help our students reach their goals and potential, including a dedicated international coordinator to support international students through transition into a new culture and educational environment. The international coordinator will contact you once you have accepted a place with us.
