Students practise their skills to help uphold the law

Policing and law students at the University of Cumbria came together in order to assume the roles that, once they graduate, they eventually hope to secure. In a simulated exercise which covered locations in Stanwix, Carlisle and at Carlisle Crown Court, they investigated, took statements, and later undertook prosecution and defence roles in a court hearing originating from an offence re-enacted at the ‘crime house’ at the Brampton Road campus.

Students keep Beijing Biddies Tuk Tuk Challenge in the spotlight

Six students from Cumbria University are helping to keep the Beijing Biddies in the spotlight as they undertake their third and final charity challenge. The students, who are in their second and third years, have volunteered to handle social media, take photographs, write a blog and keep a video diary of the team as they drive around Britain in two Tuk Tuks to raise money for the fight against children’s cancers.

When Vice Chancellor Professor Julie Mennell & former Border Television and ITN presenter Fiona Armstrong (now Lady McGregor) were introduced at the recent Royal Television Awards, North East and Borders, Professor Mennell proposed a visit to the university’s Brampton Road campus. A tour of the campus was arranged, to demonstrate the development that has taken place since Fiona’s last visit to the site, when it was the estate of the university’s legacy institution, Cumbria Institute of the Arts.
