Anglia Ruskin University guide
Anglia Ruskin, Entrepreneurial University of the Year 2014, is an innovative, international university with campuses in three vibrant cities: Chelmsford, Cambridge and Peterborough. The University is one of the largest universities in Eastern England, with a global student population of over 35,000 (including 20,700 in the UK). Graduate prospects are among the best in the country - with 9 out of 10 starting their career or further study within the first six months*. The University prides itself on championing entrepreneurial spirit among its students and staff – and many of its courses are recognised by industry and a large number are professionally accredited.
The three campuses and cities each have their own distinct personality, but all are characterised by a lively, friendly feel and are easy to get around. Cambridge is, of course, renowned for its beauty and reputation as a seat of learning. Many say it’s the perfect student city – it’s got history, stunning architecture, a beautiful riverside location as well as lots to do.
Chelmsford, one of the newest cities in the UK, has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and it’s just a short hop on the train (35 minutes) to London. Its Chelmsford campus offers a truly campus experience with its excellent teaching and learning facilities.
The Peterborough campus is small but perfectly formed, just like the city itself. There’s still plenty to do, whether you like bars, theatre or culture – the city is dominated by its Norman cathedral – and it’s brilliantly connected for getting around the rest of England.
