  • full honours degree (BA/BSc/BEng)
  • full Masters degree (MA/MSc)
  • Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert)
  • Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip).

How to apply

If you’re applying to start at Anglia Ruskin in September 2018 you can register you interest in being considered for our Alumni Scholarship.

International Alumni Scholarship 

(postgraduate taught and postgraduate research)

The International Alumni Scholarship of £3,000 aims to support those who have gained an Anglia Ruskin University degree to pursue a full-time postgraduate degree at ARU.
We will automatically consider you for this scholarship if you have successfully completed an Anglia Ruskin University degree and are applying for either a full time taught Masters course, a full time research degree or the Legal Practice course.

Please note: For postgraduate research students this scholarship will be applied each year that you pay full fees for a maximum of three years.

For other qualifying courses, you will receive a £3000 scholarship towards your total course fee. This scholarship cannot be combined with any other scholarships or the £1,000 early payment discount, and does not apply to part-time, distance learning, Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma courses or students joining a Master’s with credit.

How to apply

We will automatically consider you for this scholarship when you apply for your course. Notification of your scholarship amount will be included in your course offer letter. 

Professional and short courses

Enhance your skills and knowledge with our short courses. Offered both on-campus and by distance learning, we tailor our courses to your needs.

Part-time courses

We deliver part-time courses and offer a range of flexible options, including distance learning and work-based study. Together with the very latest facilities and support, you'll gain the expertise you need to take your career further.

Distance learning

Distance learning is for people who want to choose when and where to study. It’s ideal if you're juggling work, family and childcare commitments and perhaps find it hard to get to campus.
