Universities use Clearing as an opportunity to fill the remaining places left on their courses; so if your exam results mean you are left without any offers, Clearing is how you can ensure your future stays on track.

Available from July to September each year, you can apply as soon as your exam results are confirmed.

Why choose ARU

Going to ARU

Anglia Ruskin is an inspiring place to study. In the National Student Survey 2015, our lecturers were rated among the most enthusiastic and interesting in the country, our students among the most confident and our courses among the most intellectually stimulating for the second-year running.

We’ve invested £122 million in our campuses over the last five years, and our students benefit from outstanding facilities including cutting-edge medical simulation suites, TV and film studios, forensic science labs, a purpose-built music centre, full-size professional theatre, and mock hospital wards.

As well as training many of our region's nurses and midwives, we offer a huge range of courses – from art, language and linguistics through to engineering, life sciences, and computing and technology. Many of our courses are professionally accredited.

Each year, we also help some 2,000 businesses to grow quicker with help from our student interns. And our six research institutes tackle pressing issues such as saving lives and conserving natural resources.

We pride ourselves on being enterprising and innovative, and nurture those qualities in our students. We were delighted to be named UK Entrepreneurial University of the Year at the Times Higher Education Awards in November 2014.
