Before coming to ARU, I always wondered and imagined what university life was like. Now as a university student, it’s great to have the opportunity to let those who have the curiosity like I had experience it first-hand

As much as open days are a vital tool in finding out more about a course and the campus itself, students rarely get to see is what really happens on a day-to-day basis within the university. Our new buddy scheme aims to tackle that, to offer an insight into what Anglia Ruskin is all about.
Essentially you'll be assigned a first-year student ‘buddy’ to shadow for the day, who you'll have the opportunity to attend lectures, seminars and explore the campus with. You'll see what a typical day for an Anglia Ruskin student is, and have the chance to ask your buddy anything about the course and their experience so far.
