Anglia Ruskin University (ARU)

Students from more than 185 countries study with us. Our students are at the heart of our University: their educational experience engages, challenges and empowers them to reach their full potential.

Today we have around 30,000 students studying at our campuses and at the colleges that form our Regional University Partnerships. Our two main sites (at Cambridge and Chelmsford) attract a variety of students from the local community as well as the rest of the UK and overseas.

We contribute actively to the economic strength of the region by supporting the growth and success of businesses, government departments, charities and organisations.

We have years of real and credible industry expertise at the cutting edge of Business, Education, Science and Technology, Health, Arts, Law and Social Science.

The needs of every organisation are different and we are unique in supporting those needs. This is achieved by providing a route to academic expertise - a process more commonly referred to as knowledge transfer.

Knowledge transfer can take several forms, such as:-

Product development - achieved through, research, testing and validation or sponsored research.

Staff development - achieved through accredited or unaccredited courses, continuous professional development courses or distance learning.

Specialist facilities - such as operating theatres, forensic labs, mock courtroom, scientific and technical equipment, meeting and conference space
