Although University of Cumbria was formed in 2007 by the merger of St. Martin’s College, Cumbria Institute of the Arts and University of central Lancashire’s Cumbria sites, operating from campuses spread across Cumbria and North Lancashire; their history dates back to 1882. Since the very inception of the University, it has continued to grow geographically as well as academically.

Founded on experience and tradition of over 150 years of higher education, UoC not only prepares students for work but for life.
