Anglia Ruskin University offers students a comprehensive education with practical learning models. It empowers its students to go on a journey of self-discovery, helping them to recognise their strengths and apply them to their university studies, as well as giving them the tools, knowledge and experience that today’s employers want.
ARU offers flexible undergraduate and postgraduate courses in a range of disciplines, as well as distance learning options and degree apprenticeships. Its three campuses in Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough have all received £115m of investment in the last six years to offer students excellent facilities.
From September 2021, the new ARU Peterborough campus is welcoming applications. The £30m purpose-built university campus aims to offer high-quality, employment-focussed higher education in the hope to increase the rate of progression to university in the area, which is presently lower than the national average.
ARU Peterborough has been created in collaboration with Peterborough City Council, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority and Anglia Ruskin University Initiative and will welcome its first 2,000 students in 2022.
Students undertaking courses at ARU have access to an excellent support network, both on campus and online. These include money advice, counselling, health and wellbeing, disability and dyslexia support, employability, start-up and enterprise services. There’s also a dedicated international student team.
ARU is proud to be leading the way in 12 areas of research, working across global issues such as climate change and mental health. The university has also helped over 2,000 businesses to grow and improve their performance.
Overall, I'm really happy with my university experience. I definitely took the right decision coming to ARU. I'm learning a lot, I feel I'm growing as a human being and as a professional. My course is very interesting which I enjoy, and the university has provided me with a lot of support since day one.
Splendid. I am glad I choose the university. School environment is warm and study materials/ library availability is adequate. Timetable is well structured.
Experience so far is good and challenging.
