United Kingdom
Overview

Overview

Placing within the top 350 institutions in the world (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2021), the multicultural Anglia Ruskin University is home to students from more than 185 countries. The university has two main campus locations in Cambridge and Chelmsford.

Anglia Ruskin has recently invested GBP 100 million into its facilities. It houses one of only nine optometry schools in England and has its own public art gallery – the Ruskin Gallery. It also has a new Science Centre, a Law School Clinic, mock law courts, computer gaming suites and libraries which are open 24/7 complete with books and online learning resources.

The university excels in providing support in a variety of different areas. This includes disability support for those who have mental health conditions, medical conditions, learning difficulties and more. Other support ranges from a counselling service to the friendly International Centre that is dedicated to helping international students.

Students can also take advantage of the invaluable careers services when studying at Anglia Ruskin. The Employability Service provides plenty of help, from assistance with composing CVs to interview preparation. One-to-one sessions are available with advisors, and there are many useful resources that can be found online.

Whilst students are at Anglia Ruskin, they can enjoy one (or more) of the many social clubs or societies in their spare time. Through these groups they can make new friends, learn a new skill and add something unique to their CV. Clubs and societies range from dance class to an alternative music society.

Anglia Ruskin given award for its top facilities

The university has been praised by judges for its excellent learning environment. As a result of student surveys, Anglia Ruskin has won a reputable award for its high-quality learning facilities.

Times Higher Education's data team said Anglia Ruskin was seen as a standout example of a UK university that had excellent learning facilities and demonstrated a strategic use of resources for improvements.

The award was given based on analysis of data collected from a European student survey carried out by THE as part of its World University Rankings.

Roderick Watkins appointed Anglia Ruskin Vice-Chancellor

Professor Roderick Watkins was recently appointed as the Vice-Chancellor of Anglia Ruskin having been closely involved in developing the university's ten-year strategy.

One of his key tasks as Vice-Chancellor will be to progress the university's education strategy, which has a clear ambition to foster social mobility – ensuring that an individual's future must not be defined by their postcode, family income or school, but by their potential. Professor Watkins said:

I am absolutely delighted. Anglia Ruskin is a truly outstanding community of staff, students and partners, with an uncommon sense of purpose and ambition. We have the ability to be a powerful force for change and social good right across the East of England. It's a great privilege to help shape and focus that energy for the future.
