New flexible programmes make higher education more accessible

Anglia Ruskin University is encouraging more people to apply for higher education courses by providing a wide range of courses with a start date early in the New Year.
Those looking to take undergraduate or postgraduate courses, as well as those seeking courses leading to the award of career boosting professional qualifications, can all benefit from courses starting early in the calendar year. This year, the University is offering nearly 100 degree, diploma and certificate courses with a January, February or even March start date so that potential students do not have to wait until the more traditional September entry.

New Year starts are aimed at the local job market and suit local or regional employment needs, particularly as universities are discovering that January and February starts are popular with adults wanting to boost their skills and employability.

Anglia Ruskin will be offering courses in Art and Humanities, Building and Construction, Business Management, Computing, Education, Health and Social Care, and Law.  New students can choose whether they study full-time, part-time or via distance learning, depending on their choice of course.

Courses range from an MA in Creative Writing, a BA (Hons) in Marketing, an MSc in Physiotherapy and an LLM in International Business Law.

Alan Cain, Director of Marketing at Anglia Ruskin University said:

"New Year starts at universities are now being welcomed by many people who were perhaps considering starting during the traditional month of September but for some reason it didn’t happen for them. It is another chance for anyone who is interested in study to get organised and start a new life at university which will ultimately help them to realise their full potential."

"There are courses to suit everyone including unique distance learning degree courses for those who are either in full-time work or have full-time family responsibilities."
