The support offered by both our teaching and support staff was absolutely superb. The teaching staff actively encourage lively debate, both as research and in personal tutorials, and I was very aware of departmental support at every level throughout my time at Anglia.

Supporting you

Anglia Ruskin is an open, welcoming and professional environment in which to study and as such we like to think our student population is diverse and talented. If you are suitably qualified, we do not believe that disability or age should hold you back from studying at a postgraduate level with us. Our Study Support Service is able to offer comprehensive support to students who need it.

Mature students make up a valuable percentage of our overall student population, and at postgraduate level your fellow students are likely to be a mix of recent graduates and those with years of life experience, with work and family commitments.

Our individual Faculties sometimes host individual information evenings, more information on these events will be available in the Faculty sections of our website.

Our Faculties will be able to provide details of local businesses and institutions that may offer placements or useful information that may support your learning or research. Please visit the online areas for our:
