This is the way we will identify ourselves as the referring agent. The University hopes to develop an agent portal in due course. References, passport copies and qualification information can be uploaded with the online application or they can be emailed to international.Admissions@cumbria.ac.uk listing the applicant's name and course.

All students must have a formal English language test. 70% or above in 12th standard is NOT accepted. This is because the university was hit with a large number of non genuine students from India last year who entered the country but did not turn up. The University is therefore being very strict with English requirements.
Cumbria has its own English test which may cost £100 that students can take. Contact Anna for more information. Cumbria does not accept DuoLingo.
University of Cumbria accepts the following tests: IELTS UKVI/Academic, Pearson PTE, TOEFL iBT, LanguageCert, Trinity, Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English. They do not accept school certificates or medium instruction of English as a proof of English language proficiency.
