University of Cumbria

About the institution

The University of Cumbria was formed in 2007 through merging the Cumbria Institute of the Arts, St Martin’s College and the University of Central Lancashire’s Cumbrian campus. It is spread across five locations with campuses in Lancaster, Ambleside, Carlisle, London, Workington and Barrow-in-Furness. The University of Cumbria offers the largest number of outdoor study degrees in the UK, partially accomplished through Ambleside’s Lake District setting where students can engage in activities from hiking to wall climbing.
