STAFF and students are hitting the road to give pupils a glimpse of what it is like at the University of Cumbria.

The up-and-coming interactive roadshow is criss-crossing the north of England and beyond this summer.

People have the opportunity to don virtual-reality headsets and take virtual tours of campuses and facilities.

The roadshow will start in Carlisle on Thursday and end in Preston on September 14.

University rep, Ruth Harrison-Palmer, said they are supporting those considering whether higher education is for them.
