Students from over 185 countries study at Anglia Ruskin University.
We’re not only academically ambitious for ourselves but for our students. We’ve been named one of the top 350 institutions in the world, and joint 39th in the UK, in the Times Higher Education’s World University Rankings 2018, following similar success in 2017. We’re purposeful, challenging and curious about our world. Our academic excellence has been recognised by the UK’s higher education funding bodies, with 12 areas classed as generating world-leading research. We deliver impactful research which tackles pressing issues and makes a difference, from saving lives to conserving water.*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.
Our sheer can-do attitude sets us apart from others. We find that enthusiasm is infectious, letting the results speak for themselves and being the only UK university to be named a global 'rising star'.**
