What to do once you've applied

What happens next?

Accept your place

Once you've applied and we are able to offer you a place we’ll follow this up with a formal offer email. Don’t worry if you don’t receive your email straight away as it can take a little while to send these out. Do check your spam/junk folder though as sometimes emails can end up in there.

Refer yourself

Once you get your offer email, you'll have 24 hours to refer yourself to us via your UCAS Track account. Or you can complete and return the Record of Prior Acceptance (RPA) form – there'll be a link in your offer email.

If you refer yourself to us directly, without calling first, we’ll review your UCAS application and confirm our decision on UCAS Track. If we offer you a place, this will mean that you have accepted a place with us.

If you haven't applied through UCAS, email your completed RPA form, along with copies of your educational certificates to rpa@anglia.ac.uk by the deadline in your offer email. Our offer emails include links to the form and guidance notes.

All Clearing offers are conditional until we’ve confirmed your educational qualifications. If you applied via UCAS this information may be provided to us electronically. If not, we will need to check your certificates or results slip before we can confirm your offer.

Apply for accommodation

You can apply online for university accommodation. At this point in the year our halls of residence are getting very full, so make sure you contact our Residential Service Team as soon as possible. 

If no rooms are available in halls of residence, our House Hunting Team will help you find private rented accommodation.

Register online

Watch out for your welcome emails from us, which contain helpful information and login details. These login details will help you officially register as an Anglia Ruskin student, using a system called e:Vision.

Watch our handy guide on how to register:



Once you've registered, your student email address and library access will be activated. Your timetable will be ready for you five days after you register

Your welcome email will also tell you when and where you need to report on your first day.

Look out for an email from our Student Services team, too, inviting you to complete your online induction.
