The way the University of Cumbria works together with its Students’ Union has been praised at an awards ceremony.

The two organisations were given an institution partnership award at a Higher Education Academy (HEA) and National Union of Students ceremony at the University of Warwick.

This accolade was recently created to recognise and celebrate partnerships between universities and students.

University Registrar and Secretary Neil Harris said: “Our important work with the Students’ Union is fundamental in ensuring that the student voice informs our development and delivery of an excellent university experience.”
