Welcome to our world. Explore our range of postgraduate degrees, designed to help you take your career to the next level.

There has never been a better time to study a postgraduate course at the University of Cumbria. We offer you the chance to take your current studies to the next level.

Why undertake a postgraduate course?

Postgraduate study gives you the opportunity to specialise in the chosen field you are passionate about and advance your knowledge to the highest level.

The knowledge and experience you’ll gain during your postgraduate degree will enhance your career prospects and help you stand out from the crowd when applying for jobs.

A postgraduate course is a major investment in your future. The average salary for someone with a postgraduate qualification in England is £38,000 compared to £32,000 for graduates and £22,500 for non-graduates. (Source: Headline Statistics - Median Salaries 2016)

Undergraduate degrees can be broad in scope and often open your eyes to new, potentially unrelated subject areas and careers you may not have considered when starting your degree. A postgraduate degree provides the opportunity to bridge that gap and explore those areas further.
