Fully flexible postgraduate, professional courses and research opportunities encourage more to sign-on for learning in September
Anglia Ruskin University is offering people the chance to improve their prospects or deepen their interest in a subject by launching an improved range of postgraduate and professional courses and research opportunities which fit around their already busy lifestyles.
Starting this September is a huge range of courses in arts & humanities, building & construction, business & management, computing, design & technology, education, engineering, health & social care, law and sciences. The courses are fully flexible which means that people can now choose where, when and how they study. This makes it much easier to combine being a student with work, family and other everyday commitments.
Over 50% of Anglia Ruskin students study part-time making the university one of the UK’s leading providers of face-to-face, part-time learning and 92% of part-time students work which demonstrates that people are opting to take on greater daily responsibility to advance their own personal development. Part-time higher qualifications include Masters degrees, Postgraduate Certificates and Diplomas, Doctorates – and more including professional qualifications.
These study options are available at Anglia Ruskin’s two main campuses at Chelmsford and Cambridge and, at University Centre Peterborough and via distance learning programmes.
Highlighting the fact that traditional methods of getting a degree are changing, Deputy Vice Chancellor, Professor Alan Sibbald, said:
Many courses at Anglia Ruskin have flexible start dates. The majority of courses still do start in September but a growing number of opportunities are now available in January too.
