The Uni as a whole is okay however there are societies that are very unwelcoming and clique like, the some buildings have not been kept up to a decent standard and eduroam does not always work and there is not an alternative

Absolutely DO NOT go anywhere near this university. The lecturer are totally hands-off and then at the end of the semester push the feedback about the students needing to be more engaging. Five degrees across three countries and I can say this is the worst experience I've ever had.

ARU has a good sized facility, including a whole separate facility for the healthcare course that’s well equipped at the Cambridge site. The societies/clubs have been a lot of fun. Namely, the sports clubs, in my case taekwondo. I have met so many friends here, and had the opportunity to participate in fun events like competitions and dinners and other social events. It’s also allowed me to grow, as I never thought I could actively take part in such a sport, but it has been encouraging and fun

The Cambridge Campus feels somewhat neglected. For instance, the heating was off in the library so much so that students brought duvets in to study there and were wearing coats and could literally see our breathe in there. A window was broken on our first class of term in September, it’s now almost March the following year and it’s still broken (fully smashed, not just stuck, the glass is shattered!). The sockets don’t work in most of the lecture theatres, meaning you have to bring multiple device when you have 4 hour long classes in there. Meanwhile, the university are bragging about their brand new state of the art campus they’ve just opened in Peterborough, and about their Chelmsford campus. Most of the tutors for our course are from the Chelmsford campus, which Means their offices are in Chelmsford so those students get much more support than the 1 day a week we get at Cambridge.

A fantastic university. I felt heard as a student by the faculty of English language and linguistics. Teachers are impressive, and helpful . It has been 2 and half years that I am studying , honestly linguistics is a very hard subject to crack on but with the help of the university teachers it is going smoothly. I feel more confident and ready to face the life challenges ahead. Overall, I am respected as a human at my university. The university has shaped me into my best version.

As I'm doing a distance learning MSc none of the above stars apply. I have found this course difficult because of the many online systems used by the University. The student advisors for learning are fantastic, but student support is both ICT and for any personal issues have poor communication. The good tutors are fantastic and highly supportive, but other newer tutors need more training and understanding over what they teach. The reliance is on you to find out everything which can make it hard going when they use three platforms. The admin support provided on the course is super supportive.

ARU is hands down the worst uni to study at unless you are a medical student. The level of discrimination against student that are not studying medicine is shocking. It’s strange to me because they don’t even have any graduate doctors yet! Their medical students are the Uni golden students. ARU medical students have been given access to renovated accommodation spaces and are also assigned to live in a block together (this allows the medical students to have an advantage, as they are able to live and socialise with the people on their medical course) other students are scattered all over the accommodation campus and accommodation campus and their rooms are not updated. My bedroom was dirty when I moved in and the carpet was blue with mould. The medical students have modern wooden floors. ARU also neglect the mental health of other students. Young nursing students are Expected to travel to Southend for placements with no support! The worst part is that ARU has given medical student acc

Don't go to ARU! The Campus in Cambridge is quite nice and I was impressed. But that's it for the positives, the quality of lectures and seminars is so poor. I feel like I've wasted 3 years and almost 30k. Some of the teachers don't respond to emails and seems they don't care (of course there are few good ones as well). The wifi doesn't support the number of students and it had crushed during an exam causing problems and unnecessary stress. After 3 months of studying my timetable is still wrong, I didn't have all the modules on my ARU website (so did 90% of my colleagues) and the grades were meant to be approved and published 2 months ago and still haven't been. When asking the staff about all the delays no one seems to know the reason for this or an answer. This is just so unorganized!

ARU is a uni that has a wide range of students. It’s a great place to learn new things and meet new people. There’s a good mix of both home and international students all of which are all willing to learn and enjoy their time at uni.

Anglia Ruskin University Cambridge is a fine and pleasant institution, where the staff, lecturers and tutors are great in helping you along with the course you’ve chosen and offering appropriate support. Due to COVID and lockdown I can’t review clubs and societies as these have been postponed for safety reasons

Biggest mistake in my life coming to this university. Poor quality teaching lectures read from a book, teach yourself course, alongside unprofessional and inadequately qualified staff (one around 35 yrs old dated a 19 year old student), makes for a highly uninspiring learning environment. Accommodation had paper thin walls, complained about loud music at late nights - Nothing done.

Terrible University. Un-interested lecturers, practically no contact time in uni, and poorly planned syllabus. Course provided absolutely no practical work, despite advertisement of getting to use high tech lab equipment. Don't waste your money, behaviour of the university seniors is either totally negligent, or fraudulent.

It’s overall a good university but many of the lecturers are quite rude and unhelpful and will do things such as shout at students who walk in a few minutes late to a lecture which seems very unprofessional and secondary school-ish.

ARU has been incredible to study at, brand new state of the art facilities for my course were amazing, socially ARU was like one huge, diverse, friendly family. I never thought I would get so much support at uni from staff (as I was always told uni was much more independent) but if you ever need anything or are struggling (with anything - whether it be the course, finances, personal life, etc.) they offer so much support, and if they can't help directly they will find you someone who can. I will forever be grateful for my time at ARU, and will certainly miss it.
