Initial registration: £1100
Full registration: £3500
Anglia Ruskin's academic excellence was recognised in 2014, as part of the Research Excellence Framework (REF), an exercise which assesses the quality of academic research. Twelve areas of our work were classed as generating world-leading research. The results showed that we're making a significant impact on economies, societies, the environment and culture in all corners of the globe.
We’ll provide comprehensive research training in areas such as academic writing and publishing, research methods, laboratory and field study skills, statistical analysis, GIS and conference skills.
