Although our roots stretch back to the mid-19th century, we’re far more concerned with what we can do today to help our distance learning students build a more prosperous future. Since our first bricks and mortar institution opened its doors 156 years ago, we’ve witnessed lots of changes, although our commitment to advancing the knowledge and education of students has never wavered.

About Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford Campus

With 35,000 learners studying at various levels, we’re one of the largest universities in the East of England, boasting undergraduate, postgraduate, research degree and distance learning students from around the globe.

In addition, we also have a whopping 85,000 alumni in some 150 countries worldwide.

We believe the reasons for our success are simple, and we’re keen to make sure our enterprising and innovative approach rubs off on our students. Indeed, we were extremely proud to pick up the award for the Entrepreneurial University of the Year at the Times Higher Education Awards in 2014.

Quite simply, it’s our thirst for enterprise, as well as our ambitious attitude, that sets Anglia Ruskin University apart from the rest – and the results speak for themselves, with nine out of 10 of our graduates starting their careers within the first six months.

Whether you’re keen to change the direction of your career, gain a promotion, get back to work or you’re simply eager to keep your brain active, distance learning is the ideal solution. You can study a course in your own time and around other commitments, such as your job, children or hobbies.

At Anglia Ruskin University, we offer an extensive range of distance learning courses, which you can study from a place that suits you, as well as benefitting from full support throughout your course.

Using our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), you can access a comprehensive range of study resources, take part in online workshops and join lively discussion boards to chat about ideas and assignments. In addition, our expert tutors are on hand to offer regular feedback and advice.
