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.
Each year, we deliver a wide range of educational and commercial projects. Students, businesses, and partners benefit from our outstanding facilities: we’ve invested £100 million in the past five years and plan to invest a further £91 million over the next five years. With our facilities, activities and events all open to the wider community, everyone benefits.
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 at the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards 2016.
We’re a place where collaboration, research and scholarly activity informs everything we do. Each year, we help 2,000 businesses grow with interns, training, research and collaborative programmes. Many of our courses are recognised by industry and a large number are professionally accredited, making our students ready for the real world.
The national collaborative outreach programme aims to support the most disadvantaged young people in England to progress into higher education and Anglia Ruskin is proud to have partnered with two projects in the East of England: Take Your Place and Make Happen.
From 2016-17 and 2019-20, we'll be undertaking outreach activity in areas where the participation of young people in higher education is both low, and much lower than expected based on GCSE-level attainment
