Anglia Ruskin University is proving that ongoing investment in its facilities and teaching and learning programmes is having a real impact on the quality of the student experience provided by the University, according to The Guardian University Guide which has just been published to help students choose the right combination of university and course from those available nationally.
Featured in a supporting article within the Guide entitled Six of the Best, Anglia Ruskin is given a special mention for its English course which is ranked third in The Guardian’s subject table behind Cambridge and Oxford a fact that the Guardian predicts ‘will raise a few eyebrows – and the University’s profile’.
The content of the course, delivered within the Department of English, Communication, Film and Media, is broad allowing students to blend the traditional with the modern, spanning, as The Guardian notes, everything from ‘Shakespeare to science fiction.’
Head of Department, Rowland Wymer, said:
The other top performing subjects within Anglia Ruskin’s course listing include Art & Design, Mathematics, Nursing (via the Homerton School of Health Studies, now a part of Anglia Ruskin University), Philosophy and Social Work.
Anglia Ruskin’s Vice Chancellor Professor David Tidmarsh said:
The Education Guide looks at a variety of factors including teaching quality, staff-student ratios and graduate job prospects and the rankings are compiled from official information published on universities and higher education colleges.
Anglia Ruskin University is placed 82 in the overall rankings out of a list of 120 UK universities.
