Thrive wherever you live and work with flexible postgraduate study at the University of Cumbria

University of Cumbria

Whether you’re looking for a new challenge, to better understand a subject, or make a change in your career, we will help you engage your passion and meet your ambitions through postgraduate study.

With a proud history of teaching that dates back to the 1800s, many major colleges and institutes from across the region have since been drawn together and we are now celebrating our 10-year anniversary as the University of Cumbria. With more opportunities than ever before across a range of subject areas, including excellent links and placement opportunities for PGCE study, there really has never been a better time to study with us as a postgraduate.

Departments

We offer a wide range of postgraduate programmes across our seven university departments based at campuses in Carlisle, Lancaster, Ambleside (we are the only UK university within a National Park and now UNESCO World Heritage Site), and London. These include:

- Business, Law, Policing and Social Sciences
- Health, Psychology and Social Studies
- Institute of the Arts
- Institute of Education
- Medical and Sport Sciences
- Nursing, Health and Professional Practice
- Science, Natural Resources and Outdoor Studies

Visit our website to find out more about postgraduate study or come along to one of our open days to get a real feel for the campus and our safe, supportive environment. Starting in spring 2018, we will be holding a number of open days specifically for those interested in postgraduate study, which you can see full details for within our open day listings.
