Anglia Ruskin student ambassador Untitled Page

There are loads of things you can get involved in at Anglia Ruskin. Use your time here to try new things and meet new people.

It’s a known fact that students who get involved with university activities make a wider network of friends and organise their time better. It also looks great on your CV for future employers.

Become a Student Ambassador

Become a student Ambassador and share your experiences with new or potential students – simply register your interest with our Employment Bureau. Our Employment Bureau also offers other part-time temporary work which you can fit around your studies. Most of this work is on campus so you can learn more about Anglia Ruskin while you earn money.

Represent other students

Becoming a Rep or an Officer is a great way to work with other students and staff at all levels of the University to make positive change. There are a variety of part-time and voluntary positions available on all campuses including in the categories of Campaign Rep, Education Rep and National Conference Delegate. You could also become one of five full-time and paid Executive Officers who are elected in March and lead the Students’ Union, serving for a term of one year from July.


If you want to gain new skills and experiences while helping the community, register with the Students’ Union Volunteering Service. They’ll help you find an activity you’ll enjoy, and give you something to add to your CV.

Be part of the community

The Community Engagement team hosts a wide range of events on campus including workshops, talks and festival performances. We’d love to see you at our community events, many of which are free. Check out our online diary.

Join or create a society

There are loads of societies you can join to meet people with the same interests as you. If we don’t have a society to match your interests, you can work with the Students’ Union to create your own.

Attend social events

Our Students’ Union organises social events all year round. Fresher’s events are a great way to meet new people.

Sports clubs and Campus Sport

You can join a sports club or get involved with social sport with Sport and Active Anglia. There’s something for everyone, from complete beginners to accomplished athletes. Choose from cricket, rugby, netball, judo, ultimate Frisbee (yes, really) and more…
