We are committed to providing an environment that is healthy, safe and considerate of the welfare of our students.


Your son or daughter’s welfare is of utmost importance to us. All our students are allocated a personal tutor who will look after their academic progress, as well as a ‘buddy’ or mentor from a senior year who can offer help, information or just a friendly chat. Second and third year students are also encouraged to offer their services in the Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) scheme, spending a weekly session with a first year group dealing with such issues as tutor expectations and managing assignments.

Diversity and Equality

If your son or daughter needs diversity and equality support, we cover a number of areas including race, religion, gender, age, transgender, isolation issues and disability. There are chaplaincy facilities on campus at Carlisle and Lancaster open to all faiths and religions.

Support Services

We have trained staff to help students manage health conditions, homesickness or personal problems.


Our sites in Carlisle, Lancaster and Ambleside are located in very safe areas with low crime rates. Night security staff maintain a constant vigil to ensure the safety of our campuses.
