About Anglia Ruskin University (ARU)

ARU gives you the opportunity to explore who you are and discover your strengths. We provide an active, applied education that will empower you to amplify your purpose and gain the knowledge, skills and experience that employers demand.

We offer a wide range of flexible courses from undergraduate and postgraduate, to distance learning and degree apprenticeships courses. ARU has campuses in Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough that have benefitted from £115m of investment over the past six years.

From September 2021, courses at our new ARU Peterborough campus will be open for applications. This brand new £30m university is being purpose built to provide high-quality, employment-focussed higher education in an area with a lower rate of progression to university than the national average. The first 2,000 students will start there in 2022. ARU Peterborough is a Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, Peterborough City Council and Anglia Ruskin University Initiative.

While studying at ARU, you’ll have access to a range of online and on-campus support services, including money advice, employability, start-up and enterprise, counselling, disability and dyslexia support, a dedicated international support team, health and wellbeing services as well as our Study Skills Plus scheme and a Personal Development Tutor to assist with academic growth. You’ll also benefit from the support of our Students’ Union and sports clubs.

With 12 world-leading areas of research, we're making a positive difference - tackling global issues from climate change to mental health. We’ve also helped more than 2,000 businesses to grow and perform better.
