Carlisle is not the party capital of the UK – if you’re looking to drink your student loan away, you’ll find it difficult here! What you get instead is a lovely small town, and a small student body. This means you’ll really connect with everyone here, and your teachers can really devote their attention to you and help with your degree. The lectures and seminars are also really cosy, and tutors will often encourage debate between you and your class, which for will really help with the learning and fostering of ideas.

    I'd enjoy there to be more facilities in the university. The gym is small there and there aren't many teams. Other than that, you can do anything outside of university up here.
