THE University of Cumbria picked up two awards - Outstanding Finance Team and Outstanding Student Services Team - at the Times Higher Education Leadership and Management awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

It was also highly commended in the Leadership and Management category.

“I would like to particularly congratulate the staff in our finance team and student support services, however these results are a recognition of the commitment and excellence across the university as a whole,” said vice-chancellor Professor Peter Strike.
