Anglia Ruskin is an innovative global university with students from 185 countries coming to study with us. We've once again been named as one of the top 350 institutions in the world in The Times Higher Education's World University Rankings 2018.
Our students, businesses, and partners benefit from outstanding facilities, which include our new School of Medicine in Chelmsford, and Science Centre in Cambridge. Many of our facilities, activities and events are open to the wider community.
There are many reasons.
We’re not only academically ambitious for ourselves but for our students. We’ve been named one of the top 350 institutions in the world, and joint 39th in the UK, in the Times Higher Education’s World University Rankings 2018, following similar success in 2017.
Students are at the heart of our University, and we're delighted that our final-year undergraduates also rate their educational experience highly .
We’re ranked in the top 20 universities for teaching excellence in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide for 2017, with six subjects in the top 10 UK higher education institutions for teaching excellence: Philosophy, Sport Science, Criminology, Sociology, Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Business Studies.
As well as this, our Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) Silver award recognises the quality of our courses and high levels of student satisfaction.
We’re a place where collaboration, research and scholarly activity informs everything we do. Many of our courses are recognised by industry and a large number are professionally accredited, making our students career-ready.
Each year, we also help 2,000 businesses grow with interns, training, research and collaborative programmes.
We’re purposeful, challenging and curious about our world. Our academic excellence has been recognised by the UK’s higher education funding bodies, with 12 areas classed as generating world-leading research. We deliver impactful research which tackles pressing issues and makes a difference, from saving lives to conserving water.*
While our head is full of ambition, our feet are planted in the world around us. We pride ourselves on being as enterprising as we are innovative and nurture those qualities in our students. Our entrepreneurial excellence was once again nationally recognised when we won the Duke of York Award for University Entrepreneurship.
Our sheer can-do attitude sets us apart from others. We find that enthusiasm is infectious, letting the results speak for themselves and being the only UK university to be named a global 'rising star'.**
