Anglia Ruskin celebrates success at Times Higher Education awards
Anglia Ruskin University’s Student Services team was recognised as the best in the country at an awards ceremony in London last night [21 June].
Anglia Ruskin won the Outstanding Student Services Team category at the national Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards (Thelmas), after being shortlisted alongside the University of Bedfordshire, Birkbeck University of London, the University of Chester, the University of Roehampton and the University of Surrey.
Anglia Ruskin’s Student Services team helps with general questions and guidance on academic issues, as well as offering counselling, health advice, financial information and careers resources.
Julie Walkling, Director of Student Services at Anglia Ruskin, said:
One of the judges, Andrew West, Director of Student Services at the University of Sheffield and Chair of UK Student Services Organisation AMOSSHE, said Anglia Ruskin had submitted an “impressively strategic entry with clear evidence of a planned approach to improvement across a wide range of student services”, as well as “very good levels of engagement and feedback from users”.
