It had been memorable. I have continuously developed myself whilst in Uni. I have the support and environment to challenge myself and learn new things. It is also a very welcoming and multicultural University
Running events, running workshops. Organising drop in sessions where the employability services look through CVs and other job application for student.
I love the class engagement. I love my tutorials. It provides me the ability to discuss what I hsve learnt and enhance my communication skills. What I like least is the making procedure. I feel it should be more fairer such as having anonymised double marking and comparing the marks awarded by thr teo markers before a grade is given. I would also like students to know the name of their markers so that they can get feedback.
Doing a good job. Improving daily
There is so many to get involved in.
Up until now, my experience with the students and even the teachers is going good. And all this depends on a student, that how he/she interact with his/her module leader and what amount of time he contributes. But i think student interaction should be enhanced.
ARU has its very own employment bureau, where students can be guided and even can apply for variety of jobs or placements and internships.
The most interesting thing about my course is the way of assessment, the way how our module leader assess us and then give feedback. While the least interesting thing is that there is no option to chose any module.
Students are represented very well in student union and even in facilities like sports and other such activities.
University facilities are absolutely perfect and always available to students at any given time.
Yes ARU is in the middle of town, and in terms of distance to any amenities, it is ideal . Whereas the location itself is perfect.
I believe there is a huge diversity in clubs & sports societies, which i feel is a very useful and interesting thing.
In terms of academic feedback, it is absolutely perfect but about personal counselling I feel that I myself is lacking behind, because for this we have to book appointment.
So far, ive not had any cause to regret paying all that money for a higher education. It's been very different from what i was used to obviously but it was exactly what i needed to keep me competitive professionally
The enployment bureau is available for every students interested. They are staffed by some of the friendliest people Ive met so far. And there are job posts sent out to students periodically via emails and regularly on the school app
I like the seminar style
The Cambridge campus is very centrally located that the distance between the college, halls of residence and city centre is just within walking distance.
I generally don't do sports but the school has loads of sporting activities for everyone interested
Very supportive and ever so willing to help
experience so far is good and challenging
Absence of clarity in the processes, not satisfied with grades for certain courses, where feedback or comments not provided. Some teachers do not have a practical experience outside of University
Don't like noise at classes, talking and misbehaving students. Some classes are overcrowded. Don't like group works, where equal grade is assigned to those who participated and those who never attended. I dont like that assignments can be checked and graded by people I ve never seen, never taught me, never mentored. I like University library sources
I dont understand this question
No tutor assigned yet, dont know how to get him/her.
Splendid. I am glad i choose the university. School environment is warm and study materials/ library availability is really adequate. Timetable is well structured.
Making available relevant information.
There is a seminar after lecture , which allows you interface directly with the lecturer. Modules are in depth to provide the required insight and knowledge.
Very supportive. Available. Easily accessible.
Fabulous and very accessible.
Yes , it is . It a good way of exercising for 15 minutes everyday i have lectures . Local amenities quite impressive and available
Very good and lecturers are prompt to respond to queries .
While applying for this masters course, I did fill up the application form over many institutions. As my credentials were good, I got offer letters from all of them including huge scholarships. Now I repent, why did I chose Anglia Ruskin over Cardiff University Wales and Middlesex University London. The agents of ARU blatantly lied and misguided me when I met them at the Educational Fair in the Grand Hotel, Calcutta, India. I made some good friends here, but had I got the chance to start from the beginning again, I would have definitely chosen Cardiff University over ARU.
There is an Employment Bureau, but they are good at nothing. Rather, they are experts in ironical comments and misbehaviour towards the students from Asia. After graduation, Anglia Ruskin University takes no responsibility at all for the work placements of their students, or helping them to obtain Tier 2 UK working visa.
Most of the teachers are from Asia and Africa; there are very few from the UK. Now regarding the way of teaching, the professors are relieved just after 3 hours of lectures per week. We had to revise the subjects with the madams at the Study Skills Plus inside the library. This SSP is really excellent, helping the students thoroughly. With regards to the core modules and subjects, we did request to change some of the subjects and follow those in the Russell Group of institutions, but all in vain.
Anglia Ruskin University is a new and developing institution. The performance of the SU in the above-mentioned terms needs huge improvement in comparison to the Russell Group of Universities.
Except the library, nothing is good. Anglia Ruskin is far, far behind than the Russell Group of Univs.
The location of the main campuses of ARU Chelmsford is not too far from the accommodation facilities and local amenities. But as I have said in the last section, justified housing options are far from the college.
The sports facility is not free for the students. They loves to collect money and that also in an hourly basis -- 9 pounds / hour. The gym is also not free. And no arrangement for Football and Cricket -- the two main sports.
The academic tutors are expert in mainly 2 things -- 1. Monumental mismanagement, 2. Terrific harassment. If I start mentioning their deeds, I would not be able to complete it before tomorrow morning; that's why I am not going into the details. The personal tutor has been okay, and the mental support and counselling services in the SU building, working with SSP is also nice.
I recommend this university as it a small and well-run institution. the courses are great and it is amazing to live and work in Cambridge. the faculty is well-read and competent and therefore I have gained a lot to make myself capable to work and progress in my field of urology.
thoroughly active with such tasks with one to one support and good outcomes
too much online coursework is a bother to me personally as I dread computer screens for extended hours. I enjoyed the lectures in the classrooms though, active professors with the best and updated knowledge.
very active and great problem solvers.
for the course in which I was enrolled, I found everything to be up to the mark for good training and result
yes as there is a Tesco express within 100 metres. and the main accommodations are within half a mile from the main university building
nothing to complain about, fulfilling and enjoyable
I am glad they helped me with all the issues I had during the course. I have no complaints. all of my queries and problems were promptly taken care of by the faculty at Anglia Ruskin university
It has been a smooth road so far, the lectures have been okay and it’s understandable. The library is quiet resourceful, and the accommodation is really peaceful.
In my opinion they do try do there best to that good
I like the way lecturers engage with students and how helpful they are
Well I don’t see much of what the student union does to be honest but in suggestion they can try to engage more with students especially those who stay on campus
They are quiet good
Yes it is a good location it’s a few minutes away from the city center, train station making it easy to navigate without too many extra costs
Well I thing l would give them a 6 out of 10 there is always more to be done though the school seems more of an academic school that it is a sport school and well societies the student Union is a bit closed off because students are so unaware of what is really going on in terms of activities on campus. There should do more in there engagements with students
It is very good
It has been satisfactory. In my academic journey this has been my third Uni. It's not as good as where I did my Masters - I felt they were better set up for PGRs. If I were UG, it would meet my needs but I think there isn't much consideration for mature students or those who live off campus.
There are lots of opportunities to attend events which support you with jobs. There is also a competition to win funding for entrepreneurial activities which is helpful for those who want ot set up on their own
Some of the rooms are quite small so for popular sessions, the rooms can be hot and cramped. Most of the lecturers are very accessible and quick to respond via email.
I have not had cause to access the SU however I am clear on who I need to contact in the event that I need them. Also, there is ample opportunity to stand as a rep and the process appears to be equitable.
They are quite good.
I live some 40 miles from the University Campus. Cambridge is a vibrant, thriving city which has student life at its heart. There is no shortage of things to do and there are a wealth of accessible local amenities.
Each week there is an email containing a programme of activities. There are also lots of academic talks which are well publicised on a wide variety of topics/disciplines.
I have not had cause to contact Student Services but they are very visible. My supervisor stays in contact with me and always responds with comprehensive feedback at the agreed time. I am not overly impressed with the administrator for post grad research; sometimes it feels as if because we are not always on campus, PGRs are not quite human so email comms are impersonal and lack empathy.
