Postgraduate Reviews of Courses at University of Cumbria

Initially they struggled to prioritise different pathways during the pandemic but have improved and dealt with the situation providing a good year. read full review
My overall experience has been great and I would recommend the university to anybody looking into it. I’ve received more than enough support throughout my degree and learnt so much beyond the course content. The uni is approachable, friendly and genuinely wants the best for their students and to feel valued in such way is a massive benefit! Whilst education is a frustrating time currently with lockdowns and lack of face to face contact, the situation is unavoidable and still colleagues and students thrive together with effort from both sides. Yes, it’s a lot of money to not be accessing on site services, but the support has still been the same, albeit virtual. read full review
Severely disappointed. Not worth time/money wasted. Course co-ordinators are continually changing content so you'll no doubt be subjected to some trail and error (aka poor decision-making). read full review
I found the university a terrible place to study, the tutors had little idea about what they were teaching and they had limited experience. I had previously completed my undergraduate degree by learning from doctors and professors who conducted active research in the field, however these tutors could not compare to this.
They did not take criticism or advice on how best we learnt and instead continue to deliver sessions in a way that did not benefit the students. They advice and content of the lectures and seminars was appalling, and had no transfer to the education setting, it was embarrassing that the course claimed to offer a specialism in SEND & Inclusion and the tutor who delivered this sessions was a Geography teacher.... I think that sums it up really.
I would never recommend this University, in fact I would strongly advise rethinking and applying elsewhere. Most people who attend this university live locally and as I was not from the area, I do believe I was stigmaised. read full review
My overall university experience so far is very good. I would want to tell future students about my experiences that it is well worth taking a business or management related course at Cumbria Uni. read full review

My experience has been Positive. Lovely tutors and lecturers. Easy to access support and help for essays when needed. The library has an amazing support team who are quick to help with references and queries. Library is fully stocked with all books you need. read full review
Overall excellent. It is a fast paced course, but the smaller class sizes and access to facilities are far better than larger universities. This means you get more one to one support. The mental health services at the University of Cumbria are fantastic. read full review
