Hi,

I have just been offered a place on the Vet Nursing and Applied Animal Behaviour BSc degree programme, and the website says that the course is split between the College of West Anglia and ARU Cambridge Campus- I was just wondering whether I can apply for the Uni accommodation, or whether I have to apply for private housing because of the link with the College?

Hello, I'm starting my first year of the psychology course in September however I'm a little stressed about oral presentations. How often will I have to do one and will it be on my own or in a group? Also what happens if someone doesn't want to do an oral presentation cause they find it difficult ?

Hello Ellebelle97

Oral presentations are an important activity in the majority of Psychology
courses within the UK. You may be surprised to hear that most students find these anxiety provoking at first. But oral presentations equip you with very necessary transferable skills that will prove an asset in your future studies or employment.

Our staff are approachable and understanding. So you shouldn’t
worry; we’ll guide you through these. We are thrilled that you’ve chosen to study Psychology at Anglia Ruskin University this coming year. We are certain that your experience will be a positive one and look forward to meeting you shortly!

If you have any further queries, or would like a chat with one of our lecturers, please send me a private message and I will be happy to help you
