Anglia Ruskin Malaysia visit

Anglia Ruskin University staff, partners and former students met on the other side of the world to celebrate 25 years of its presence in Malaysia.

A reunion attended by more than 150 Anglia Ruskin alumni, staff of partner institutions and guests, was held at the Sheraton Imperial hotel in Kuala Lumpur to mark a quarter century of partnership between Anglia Ruskin and institutions in the country.

Over the past 25 years, students have been able to study for Anglia Ruskin University degrees from within Malaysia with several different institutions including Kolej PTPL in Penang and First City University College, FTMS College, MAHSA University and HELP College of Art and Technology in Kuala Lumpur.

Professor Michael Thorne, Vice Chancellor of Anglia Ruskin University, said:

"This reunion was a marvellous opportunity for us to meet with and celebrate some of the people who have made Anglia Ruskin’s presence in Malaysia such a success over a quarter of a century.

"Our links with partner institutions across four continents are extremely important to us and our partnerships have helped so many students on their way in the world. 

"This was a hugely enjoyable night and I am sure Anglia Ruskin’s relationship with Malaysia will continue to thrive for many years to come."
