Most helpful review

Simply frustrating. My worst educational experience so far. Extremely poor communication channels and haphazard organisational skills.

Only a third of your teaching time will be spent in lectures. The rest of your learning is spent between practical demonstrations and clinical and lab sessions. On average teaching/practical/clinic time is about 15-20 hours a week.

My course has been enriching in many aspects, and I have gained a lot of confidence in myself as a researcher, presenter, networker, and person. This has occurred through participating in research training events, presenting at seminars, and working on conferences at the university, such as the Cambridge Arts Network conference. My supervisor and other lecturers in the Cambridge School of Creative Industries have guided me and assisted me in making connections with other researchers. I have grown immensely as a researcher as I have gained knowledge in academic writing, conducting literature reviews, and critically analyzing film and other forms of art. The research specific facilities are nice, and hopefully there will be even more spaces created for researchers to work and socialize in the near future. Cambridge has endless possibilities for researchers and creative-minded people, and as a centre of academic excellence, Cambridge definitely does not lack in inspiration.

The campus its self is very small, has very little to do, and does not feel like the classic cosy, friendly, campus you might associate with university. In line with this there are very few decent sports/societies to take part in, from what I have seen the accommodation is minimal and fairly grim. The lecturers and staff I have come across however have been brilliant, I study Paramedic Science and I find them to be knowledgeable, enthusiastic and generally very good. Most of them are still active Paramedics which is a brilliant resources for those of us learning the trade. Despite this however the course is in its infancy and still teething. It feels like a university that is desperate to make money, there are clearly too many of us, but they dont want to pay more staff. The course could be done in 2 years in terms of content, but that would be a years less fees for them. Great staff but Uni is a scam. Learn a trade instead.

Only go to ARU part time but so glad that I’m not there full time or live there looks so dead! The rooms and library are nice. Then canteen is okay sometimes really lovely and sometimes meh. The theatre in Ashcroft building is painted dark purple making the room really dark which isn’t a nice educational environment!

I loved my experience at university here, but I felt like some facilities were limited in the music department. Equipment was sometimes broken and therefore unable to use...and ALSS nights like Thursday night live were always empty as the same bands would always play.

The university has great facilities, and the societies and student union is fantastic! Most of the toilets are gender neutral, and the bathrooms in the SU offer towels and tampons free to students. The university also offers fantastic student support. It is a great environment, and the events the SU put on are always fun and interesting. Another plus is the SU bar is always cheap!! Great university overall.

ARU is located perfectly just outside the city center, so you're close to everything without being mauled my tourists. My Freshers experience was great, there was so much on and I felt encouraged to try things out and get involved. I love my course and the staff are friendly and helpful. I am an art student and can particularly hilight the printmaking studios and the animation facilities! If you're considering coming for an open day, definitely come along, and have an explore.of Cambridge while you're at it. I fell in love with the city pretty quickly and love to explore the surrounding area. There are lovely Riverside walks they take you into the middle of nowhere in no time

For the last 3 years I’ve been doing Film and TV Production at Anglia Ruskin University, and it is everything I wanted it to be. The course, which is divided into several modules, focuses heavily on putting the students into the shoes of filmmakers. The university provides us with the equipment used on professional film sets and allows us to learn from practice rather than theory. With modules such as Documentary, TV Studio, Specialised Practice and the final Major Project, the course becomes a worthwhile and entertaining experience while enhancing artistic skills in the area of filmmaking.

Anglia Ruskin University has, so far, given me an amazing university experience. Having studied Drama in my first year and now having transferred onto the Writing and Film course, I can say without a doubt that the student services give wonderful support with your options as a student. As a course rep for my current course, I have gained a huge responsibility of making sure fellow students are enjoying what they do, as well as communicating with staff on a professional level. What ARU doesn't tell you is how much respect you will be given as a student, and it's phenomenal when you realise how your lecturers will give you such independence with your coursework and how much love they have for their industries. It really is all about “U” here, and it's really shown!

I study Paramedic Science BSc Hons. I have found my uni experience disappointing at ARU. In first year, the accommodation on campus was horrible - tiny rooms with paper thin walls, the rooms were dark and uninviting and really over priced! The uni building itself is quite nice, and the campus has a nice layout except I don’t really like that members of the public are often just wondering around campus. The course I’m on is run relatively well, many of the lecturers care and put effort in. The equipment we use in skills is always up to date and good quality. The uni’s SU bar is really impractical and nobody wants to go there as everything is overpriced and they don’t have any cool events, the only student unions are academic or sports related except for “tea and coffee club” which is saddest thing I’ve ever seen. The nightlife in Chelmsford is so bad and the uni don’t do anything to encourage local businesses to engage with students.

Aru has its ups and downs like any university. I have very much enjoyed my time here. If you make the most of it then you will have a great experience with the uni. If you don't then you will feel as through the uni has let you down. Everything you need to have a great time if there, you just have to be the one to go it it.

Great for anyone looking into doing a career in sport like myself, as the facilities and possibilities are of high quality. Main downside for me is that clubs will often be judged from the big wigs based off of the actions of the few, rather than the whole collective.

Good for undergrad life sciences, however if you stay to do a master's degree you essentially re-do undergrad experiments (especially the genetics module which is identical). Masters dissertation supervisor was wholly unhelpful and generally seemed disinterested. Facilities are good and Cambridge is a nice place to live (very expensive though but that's to be expected)

Disorganised, generally unhelpful place. For example, I’ve received conflicting information on what work to submit and when, and have been given generally poor advice. I feel I always have to email and phone for help, it’s rarely offered. Thankfully other students have been on hand for help and advice, particularly in relation to confusing timetables. Without this, I think things would be worse. I understand the drop out rate at ARU is high, frankly given what I’ve experienced, I’m not surprised.

The uni itself is great. Amazing careers advisors that can help you prepare for the next step after uni. Cambridge nightlife however is pretty dead. Only 2-3 clubs that are worth going to however after a while they get pretty boring. Surprising for a city which has one of the most famous universities in the world in; but the city itself is fairly isolated, and student life isn’t as exciting as you may think.

Anglia Ruskin has such a great support network. From an advice service to a financial service to really supportive staff that want to see you achieve so much. Everyone you talk to puts you at ease and there is such a fantastic employment bureau for part time jobs within the Uni that pay the living wage!

Computers are as expected, but rooms are closed at silly hours. Dozens of societies, sure, but 90% are representative and only a few are recreational. Students Union is the redeeming factor - they're lovely folks who genuinely try to look out for people and provide as many events and opportunities to the student body as they can. I went to ARU for three years and feel almost like I wasted the time, but the SU is prime.

The university are more interested in hitting targets and getting quotas. They do not assist students when they need help and refuse to treat people fairly. It seems you are more likely to get good grades if you are friends with the teacher or if the gains something from that student. Papers are definitely not marked anonymously. To may people have dropped out of my course for failed due to this.

Very unorganised due to lack of staff - especially in medical related subjects - also they have admitted to not teaching us what we need to know and also lecturers frequently run late. Not very helpful in support either. Would not recommend if you have a disability or need other learning support for example to go here.

Some dire lecturers with limited use of the English language written or spoken. 2hr per week lectures per module (so not a lot). Ridiculous assignment guidance that is then marked down when you follow given advice and a library with books from the ARK. Given an era of online learning save your money, time and use your ambition elsewhere. That said I got a 1st. (truly not hard).

I am a CRIC student at the moment so I am guessing Anglia Ruskin is so much better but CRIC is not good. If you can avoid being a CRIC student please do they take a long time to solve your problems or to do your paperwork.

I really enjoyed my time at this University, and especially since the Cambridge Campus is so helpful and easy to navigate. Most of the buildings are relatively new or newly refurbished, and they have all the things you need to be able to study and learn efficiently. They are also building a new Science Building now, to replace the old one. Some classrooms did have very poor ventilation, however, but I found this mainly to be the older buildings like Ruskin. The clubs and societies at this Campus are very centred around the fact that you may have a special skill in something and require a lot of its members. Those that did not, was very hard to find any information on about meetings and location. The student union is very visible and connected to the students and arrange a lot of parties, get-togethers and trips. The library is good content wise, but all the grouprooms above the ground floor has horrible ventilation.

ARU is a great university the cambridge campus is located very close to the center of the town. there are several great facilities, the library and open access areas are great for independent study proiding computers and room for book work. however they get filled very quickly at peak times. there are many areas that provide food and a place to socialise there are 4 cafe type areas that also act as good overflow study areas as do unused lecture rooms. for societies there is a great variety and it is farly easy to start your own plus the su help in many way like with concerns on the course and in uni in general. there is a great student support service that provides help for those who suffer from mental health issues or are just confused or just miss home. the employability service and bureau provide great advice on getting job and increaseing your employability after your degree even provide advice on deciding what to do after your degree. the internet is normally good.

No su bar/ area for a start, its a University a student bar is mandatory. If you like sport dont bother, horrifically managed with rude and deliberately unhelpful staff (Active Anglia). Do not provide travel to games or provide equipment. Coaches are brilliant how ever. Classes are mediocre with little support regarding coursework and exams. The academic year is very short compared to other universities giving you little time to take info in. Some lecturers struggle with English.

I am at the Cambridge Campus. It is fantastic. I am studying Paramedic Science and the facilities that I have available to me are brand new and first class. The university is incredibly student orientated and they really listen to what we have to say. There is a good selection of societies, however there are fewer on the Cambridge campus but it is easy to start a society of your own. The university also has an employment bureau the students can register for and you can get paid to be an ambassador. You really feel like they university want to help you succeed.

The societies are great, a good mix so there is bound to be one that interests you (I love the wildlife society). There are some great facilities such as the library, employment bureau, and students union. Good service to help you get volunteer work to gain relevant experience which is so important in my subject (Zoology).

Although I am only a first year I feel like I have to make this review! I just feel so comfortable here! Honestly I was a little worried about the jump from A-Level to University but Anglia Ruskin have made the transition so smooth. I've spoken to friends at other universities (including Russell Groups) who have struggled with getting any support whereas here in lectures everything is explained so well and the university works hard to make sure you're equipped with the right skills. Also my lecturers (History) are extremely enthusiastic and make it interesting so I don't sit and watch the clock. I can't speak much about other courses but I know that help is always there regardless and all staff on whatever course are happy to help during classes and outside of them. Getting a 2.1 here seems very achievable thanks to effort of the university. May I also add that the location of the Cambridge campus is brilliant, 15 minute walk from train station, 10 minutes walk from city centre :)

The University is absolute immaculate, I cannot think of any improvements however the Student Union is beginning quite late, its been roughly a month and this is when most major queries tend to begin, also its easier for the students to change anything early on before we get used to something like out timetable for example, if we need something changed, it would be easier to change it earlier rather than later.

Fine University with good facilities etc... However it is quite squash into the middle of Cambridge and services like Student Support can have very long waiting times.

Great environment to learn which helps with lecturers with real enthusiasm for their given subjects.

I go to University Centre Peterborough, they have lovely staff in such a personal and friendly environment! I'm currently employed as a research ambassador and have found many job opportunities as my time as a student! I would definitely recommend UCP and ARU!

I have met some wonderful people at anglia Ruskin, but the university itself is terrible, I wish I hadn't spent all my money on coming here.

Pile of poop. Good for the people you meet there but absolutely terrible as a uni. Waste of three years and debt!!

I wish I'd been taught by the teachers on my course, I was left in lessons without anything being taught to me.

Great uni, not much of a typical uni experience on offer if you want to to a health course that includes placements though

Anglia Ruskin in Chelmsford overall is a pretty good university, campus living isn't the best. Value for money with accommodation really isn't good. The main reason I decided to study here was due to the fantastic course reparation. I've studied in high education before where the course wasn't as good but campus living was better - guess I have the reverse now.

It's structured, modernised and honest in channelling your transferable skills into the real world (without it being too daunting!). The library is very good and, I think, the best thing is that the University has connections all over the city so you're able to experience as much as you like, with people who share the same educational or recreational interests.

nursing degree is great here! You get so much support and is great for commuters too. Cambridge has so much in the city to do and the university has fantastic facilities. Brand new buildings for nursing with amazing skills lab. The university library is great, so much material and has 4 levels of quietness so you can get whatever you need done.

I love my course and it seems everyone studying healthcare subjects agree with me. They have all the modern facilities required for teaching the next generation of paramedics and nurses etc. I'm not so sure about other subjects but the university does have a certain reputation and I haven't heard much to dispute that when hearing about the 'proper subjects'. Clubs wise I have joined many more Cambridge University society's than ARU and it is a shame that ARU do not work on promoting a relationship between the society's of the 2 university's (I found these society's by emailing them individually as they are not allowed at ARUs fresher fair without paying extortionate fees). Uniwide WiFi from Eduroam has no issues

Great university, the Lord Ashcroft Business School looks great and the facilities cater to your every need, WiFi is good but can be a bit weak sometimes, plenty of clubs and societies to join and the students union are always on hand. With the uni being the Entrepreneurial University of the year I think that shows its brilliant with career opportunities!

the university it's self is pretty good. There are several food places, and toilets in every building. There could be more computers and spaces for study outside of the library where it's acceptable to talk but is still comfortable! The wifi isn't bad, it has its moments
