We are one of Britain's newest universities, but we have a history of educating professionals going back over 150 years. We were formed in 2007 from Cumbria Institute of the Arts, St Martin's College and the Cumbrian campus of UCLan. With academic strengths in education, healthcare, sports, visual and performing arts, humanities, social science, law and criminology, science, outdoors, forestry and land studies we will have a great course to start your career.

Our campuses are in Carlisle, Lancaster and Newton Rigg, Penrith. These are lively, safe, student-friendly cities with a lower than average cost of living. Transport links are excellent. We are on the West Coast mainline rail network and close to the M6 motorway. Carlisle to Lancaster is approximately one hour in a car or train. Lancaster to Manchester is just 55 mins on half hourly rail service.

The campuses are compact and situated within walking distance of the city centres. The great outdoors is on our doorstep from city centre parks to National Parks and the university's clubs and societies will help you to take advantage of all that our spectacular surroundings have to offer.

 

Training teachers

St Martin's College was the largest of the institutions which went on to form our university. It was founded in Lancaster by the Church of England in 1964 to train teachers. It grew over the years and developed a fine reputation for the quality of its teacher and health professional training, opening a campus in Carlisle along the way as well as taking over Charlotte Mason College in Ambleside.

Artistic tradition

The former Cumbria Institute of the Arts can trace its history back to 1822 when the Society for the Encouragement of Fine Arts was formed in Carlisle. It eventually became the only specialist institute of the arts in North West England and one of only a small number of such institutions in the country. Recent alumni include Turner Prize winner, actor Charlie Hunnam, Gerard McKeown, performance poet and ceramicist, Thomas Hopkins-Gibson, recently commissioned by Liberty of London.

In the country

In August 2007 we acquired University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) sites in Cumbria including its campus at Newton Rigg with its long history of agricultural training. Today it is the home of the National School of Forestry, the Centre for Wildlife Conservation and our outdoor studies courses - more outdoor students study with us than with any other higher education institution in Europe.
