Anglia Ruskin University

Student review
By LiberalUnity15

Anglia Ruskin is a very good modern university that deserves to be higher on the league tables. It creates a warm atmosphere that is desirable for students that may be worried about the transition from further education to university life.

Student Life in Cambridge

Outside of London you’ll be at one of three main Campuses:

Cambridge
An iconic centre of learning, there are tons of art galleries, history and museums to explore. You can go punting down the river if you fancy it, or there are loads of cozy pubs to chill out in.

Chelmsford
England’s newest city, Chelmsford has loads going on and is home to V Festival. There’s more than enough by way of nightlife and shopping to be had here, but if you’re still after more it’s only a 35 minute train journey to London.

Peterborough
Peterborough is best known for its imposing Norman Cathedral (which is also where you’ll be graduating). It has plenty of nightlife, with clubs, bars, restaurants and two theatres if you’re feeling more cultural.
