Students can head to the ARU SU any time they need advice. The advisors are friendly and knowledgeable and can help with a range of issues, from academic offences and appeals, accommodation, disability support and problems with tutors or courses.
Student safety and wellbeing are of paramount importance to the SU, which is why Anglia Ruskin uses the SafeZone app – download it to access emergency assistance from security staff day or night when on campus or in university accommodation.
For mental health or wellbeing support with alcohol and drugs, domestic violence, pregnancy and sexual health, students will find dedicated advice, including helplines and online resources on the SU website. They can also book in with advisors to get confidential advice and support in person.
If a student experiences harassment at university, they can report it in confidence through Unsilenced, the university’s online reporting tool.
Students also have access to the Harassment Support Network.
ARU students on Postgraduate Search say:
“If you reach out for help, tutors and university workers are there to provide guidance, and I have received a lot of assistance and advice in many matters regarding visas, financial aid, academics, etc.”
“The wellbeing service is well used and well represented. There is the option for both group sessions and online support as well as one to one counselling for a range of issues from academic to highly personal.”
“Every kind of support is offered by the university.”
