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. However, they are incredibly fast to send you emails if your attendance is below 85.
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.
I'm studying Early years via distance learning, the uni try ad get us involved in as much as possible inviting the group to the campus for various events. The distance learning program has been well considered to ensure its user friendly. I have several friends at various uni's doing the same course and Ruskin by far has the most support.
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.
Students at clubs/societies (and in general) are very nice and helpful. They made me feel very welcomed and included in my first few weeks of starting uni. People on my course are always helping each other out and giving advice in terms of how to improve our work (I study Fine Art).
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 Science department is brilliant; the lectures are interesting and engaging. The lecturers are very passionate about their subjects, and it’s great to be able to discuss their current research with them. 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).
A university that is expanding and growing a lot lately. The facilities are being improved and new buildings are being constructed. They are spending a lot of money as well to bring new staff to the university including very prestigious well known professors.
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.
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!
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
