Postgraduate Reviews of Courses at University of Cumbria

But my uni tutor and fellow trainees have been very supportive. I think I will be able to pull through. read full review

A university training is the great ordinary means to a great but ordinary end; it aims at raising the intellectual tone of society…It is the education which gives a man a clear conscious view of his own opinions and judgments, a truth in developing them, an eloquence in expressing them and a force in urging them. read full review
Graduated July 2017. University could be far more efficiently organised; communication could be significantly better, but there's generally a good, friendly and helpful atmosphere. read full review
Positive experience so far.
I've found the recent changes to student section of website difficult initially to get my head around. I think the home page could be clearer and some tabs don't seem relevant to distance learning students. read full review
I am enjoying The University of Cumbria, it is a lovely small uni. I like the campus, library and course in general, there isn't much else to add. It's a good course ran by good tutors, in a lovely setting. read full review
it is a wonderful, friendly place where you feel welcome as part of a family. the staff are supportive and encouraging in everything they do. Throughout the years, they have helped me with financial difficulties, social problems and educational issues. They often go above and beyond what would be expected of them read full review

Great all round. Enjoyed every minute. Tough to get the work life balance correct, as needed to work as no funding was given but support was given by tutors who understood need to work. Graduation was beautiful, an amazing end to a tough two years of study and work. read full review
