Every year, more than 3,000 students come to Cumberland Lodge for residential study retreats, from higher education institutions across the UK, including universities, the Inns of Court and NHS vocational training schemes.
We subsidise these retreats and other events from our charitable resources, to encourage the widest possible student participation. As well as being intellectually stimulating, they allow students to interact with each other in ways not possible in their institutions.
Bursaries are available to help students with limited financial means to attend with their peers.
Many university departments have been visiting for decades and their gatherings have become a much valued tradition.
Here is a short video from the Philosphy Department at the University of Herfordshire about their study retreats at Cumberland Lodge:
