The Raymond Priestley Centre is beautifully located on the western shore of Coniston Water. Operated by the University of Birmingham it provides bespoke residential courses for undergraduate and postgraduate students. In addition to its core business of teaching groups from the University of Birmingham, the Centre has well established programmes with other universities, schools and business groups.
Centre staff work closely with group leaders to establish clear aims for their course and ensure appropriate support is provided from first enquiry stage to final departure from the Centre.
The superb lakeside location enables excellent provision for water sports. The Coniston Fells are accessible by foot from the Centre for half and full day activities. Research at the Centre into transfer of learning, places the courses at the cutting edge of programme delivery, while the friendly and professional approach of staff provides for an enjoyable and very memorable learning experience.
