The University of Cumbria Project Academy

The Project Academy is a fully integrated pathway of education, training, development and professional qualifications designed for people who work in projects. Our Project Academy portfolio covers a range of disciplines from project management to leadership and digital skills.

The University of Cumbria has developed successful partnerships with leading employers, meaning our professional development and industry-leading qualifications in Project Management disciplines are highly sought after by a wide range of organisations. The nature of our university ensures we constantly monitor industry developments and adapt our courses and qualifications accordingly.

Over the last four years we have worked closely with industry partners including Sellafield Ltd, Rolls-Royce, BAE Systems and the NHS. Through collaborative working we procure, develop and deliver industry-leading project management qualifications. By building sustainable relationships with industry this ensures our qualifications and course portfolio are always developing to prepare employees for the changing landscape of project management.

We currently deliver a number of our courses online through distance learning, and in employer locations across the UK.

We have a varied portfolio of courses and training, relevant to learners and practitioners at entry level, to developing senior practitioners and Subject Matter Experts at Masters and Doctorate level. Courses range from short continuing professional development (CPD) and professional qualifications to Higher Education degree and certificate courses. A number of our qualifications are accredited by the Association for Project Management.
