Founded in 2000, ARU London offers a range of courses leading to academic and professional qualifications that help our students to successful careers in business, management and accountancy.

Our campus is based in the City of London, on the corner of Charterhouse Street and Farringdon Road. See the Travelling to ARU London page for directions.

We're currently home to 2,000 students from all over the world, and our ethos is simple: to provide competitively priced, top-quality business education that's relevant to employers' needs.

Originally, we prepared students for professional accountancy exams but since 2007 we've been expanding our range of courses. We now offer undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in subjects including Business and Human Resource Management, Law, Finance and Accounting, and International Marketing, as well as three MBAs. 

We know that practical skills and real-world experience are valuable to you. For that reason, we timetable our classes to give you the chance to undertake part-time work that's relevant to your future career – and our lecturers have first-hand experience of business.

We're proud to have twice won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in recent years. The Award recognises organisations that have made outstanding contributions to enterprise culture in the UK.
