    Hey! I thought I would start a thread for applicants who have firmed Cumbria uni Lancaster campus for sep 2013 start! Ive firmed Cumbria and I am studying Adult Nursing!
    Hi! I have also confirmed Cumbria as my first choice for Primary Education with QTS. I've applied to Waddell and just trying to get a feel for things. What has everyone heard about the university? I keep hearing bad reviews but when I went on open days (twice) I love the place!

    I've only read good reviews and one bad one... I think you can't base your opinion on others if you love the place from ehat you have seen then that's good enough I love it too from what I saw on my open day and can't wait to go

    I loved it too!
    I put Cumbria down as my very last choice when I was applying, and never thought I would really end up going.
    And then once I had my interview, I loved it and ended up choosing Cumbria over Hull I'm kicking myself thought because everywhere else I applied to, I applied for Primary Teaching and Cumbria was the only place I applied for Early Years! Would have been completely perfect doing Primary Teaching at Cumbria
