About

Anglia Ruskin University has two modern campuses in two exciting cities Cambridge and Chelmsford each less than one hour away from London by train. Anglia Ruskins campuses are right in the centre of both cities, with state-of-the-art learning and recreational facilities available for all students.

We believe that a degree, both undergraduate and postgraduate, should not only enhance subject knowledge, but equip students with skills that will be used throughout their careers. The majority of the courses on offer at Anglia Ruskin University, particularly those at postgraduate level, are designed with global reach in mind, and focused towards real skills and knowledge that can be taken straight into the workplace, helping our students to achieve their career aspirations.

Anglia Ruskin University has invested over £80million in new state of the art teaching, learning and social spaces over the last five years, with a further £115million planned over the next five years. As well as impressive facilities, our campuses are also ranked 10th among UK universities in the Green League, a measure of current action and commitment to sustainability and minimising environmental impact.

Our University offers a range of scholarships for international students, including the International Merit Scholarship scheme, for which all applicants are automatically considered.The International Merit Scholarship scheme provides awards of either £500 or £1000 to well-qualified students applying for any full-time Bachelors or Masters course. Awards are made on the basis of academic merit and level of competence in English language

All of our courses are available with a September start date, and in addition a large number of courses at Anglia Ruskin now offer a start point in January each year, giving international students more flexibility in starting their studies.
