Anglia Ruskin University
Anglia Ruskin University, based in the beautiful East of England, has a history dating back to 1858. The University now has five academic faculties offering a range of high-quality undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the beautiful academic city of Cambridge, with a second campus in the historic town of Chelmsford.
Anglia Ruskin’s courses are offered across five faculties: Ashcroft International Business School; Faculty of Science and Technology; Faculty of Arts, Law and Social Sciences; Faculty of Education; Faculty of Health and Social Care.
As well as full three-year undergraduate and one-year postgraduate degree courses, there are also one-year or one-semester study abroad programmes available.
Every one of our courses aims to develop skills which are transferable to future careers, as well as academic knowledge and advancement. The University is proud of the quality of the teaching it offers which is reflected in its success in the Guardian University Guide league table. In 2006 we were ranked in the top twenty in the UK for a number of subjects, including English, Art and Design, and Architecture.
The University has a full range of support services for students: library, computer facilities, sports facilities, academic and pastoral advice and accommodation services. Accommodation is offered on-campus in attractive single study bedrooms. All University-managed accommodation is self-catering and most now includes wireless internet access and en-suite bathrooms.
The city of Cambridge is world renowned for the quality of the student experience it affords, and at Anglia Ruskin we have a friendly and welcoming city centre campus with a good community atmosphere. In the evening and at weekends students can enjoy many local attractions including galleries, theatres, cinemas, shopping, cafes and restaurants.
The International Student Support team is responsible for the provision of specialist support to all EU and Overseas students. New students receive pre-arrival information and an orientation programme to help familiarise them with the University at the start of their studies, as well as support throughout their course of study. The International Student Support team also run social events for international students throughout the year.
Anglia Ruskin is a popular destination for international students, who currently make up more than 20% of the student population. Each year around 100 different nationalities are represented across the two campuses, giving Anglia Ruskin a truly international flavour.
