Why choose Anglia Ruskin University?
Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) is a modern, global university that provides its students with qualifications that are recognised world-wide. In 2021, ARU was named as one of the top 350 universities in the world for the sixth successive year – and one of the top 40 in the UK.
In November 2021, ARU received The Queen’s Anniversary Prize for their world-leading music therapy work. They were also named as one of the UK’s top five universities for Education and Sports Science courses in the Guardian League Table 2022. In 2021, the Knowledge Excellence Framework ranked ARU as part of the top 10% in England for skills, enterprise and entrepreneurship.
Twelve of ARU’s research areas were classed as generating world-leading research by the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. These subjects are: Allied Health Professions; Dentistry; Nursing and Pharmacy; Architecture; Built Environment and Planning; Art and Design; History, practice and theory; Business and Management studies; Communication, Cultural and Media studies, Library and information management; English Language and Literature; Geography, Environmental Studies and Archaeology; History; Law; Music, Drama, Dance and Performing arts; Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience; and Social Work and Social Policy.
Anglia Ruskin University welcomes students from all over the world. The entry requirements for its courses vary depending on the subject of study selected, so interested students should visit the ARU website for details. The university’s website also includes information on how qualifications from your home country compare with the entry requirements.
Tuition at Anglia Ruskin University is in English.
