Anglia Ruskin University was awarded university status in 1992. Today, with a student population of 30,000, we are one of the largest universities in the East of England, and a major provider of part-time education.
Our 28,000 students are on courses leading to undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, as well as to a range of professional qualifications. We are one of the most significant suppliers of nurses and teachers to the professions and offer an ever expanding range of contemporary courses.
Our main campuses at Cambridge and Chelmsford attract students not only from the East of England and across the UK, but in increasing numbers from mainland Europe and from further afield. An increasing number of our students are enjoying the benefits of distance learning and our University has an extensive network of contacts with institutions throughout the world, delivering courses in countries as far removed as Malaysia and Trinidad.
