What Our Students Say

I remember well the first week of lectures. I recall thinking that I'll never be bored again.

I would recommend studying in the Psychology Department at Anglia Ruskin University to anyone willing to discover more about human and animal behaviour. Whatever a person's age or background, Psychology is an endlessly fascinating area of science to study and investigate.

I am now of retirement age, but I still won't be bored. January 2013 will see me starting a Masters Degree, at Anglia, in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience.

BSc (Hons) Quantity Surveying

Coming from a non-construction background, the subject was daunting, but the informative scope and depth of the modules delivered, enabled me to develop an academic and 'real world' portfolio of skills and experience.

The knowledge and support from the staff is absolutely second to none; I have felt thoroughly supported from the first day. The staff take time to answer questions and give their full attention when I have needed help. Receiving tailored support and feedback is important to ensure a student maximises their own potential, to which the staff on this course excel

Stephanie White

BSc (Hons) Zoology, 2nd Year

Being a new student who wasn't familiar with Cambridge, at first I was sceptical on how easy it would be to socialise. However, the vast amount of clubs and societies that Anglia Ruskin offers provided me with an opportunistic experience to meet new people who shared similar hobbies. The trips and tutor meetings within the course also helped to support this.

I'm now in my 2nd year of studying the course and have thoroughly enjoyed it so far. Currently I am deciding upon my chosen dissertation question and am looking forward to researching it. I love how the course continues to challenge me, and its active style of teaching has continued to keep me captivated.

For those who want to become an engineer this is one of the greatest opportunities. The teaching methods at Anglia Ruskin University are well programmed, because they are divided between theoretical and practical lectures, which gives a good understating and knowledge of each subject. Also, the university has very good qualified teachers who share 'real world' experience from their lives.

I enjoyed all the course aspects, because I believe that they are fundamental for my future career; from the theory to the practical sessions, it gives a good flavour of what Electronics Engineering is about.

Sonam Ruperelia

BSc (Hons) Ophthalmic Dispensing

I chose Anglia Ruskin as its Faculty of Science & Technology has a very good reputation and the campus and city had such a friendly atmosphere when I visited during an Open Day.

I really enjoy the practical side of the course. The equipment available in the clinic sessions is particularly helpful because these are the tools I will be working with when I qualify as dispensing optician. Being able to find out how to do things hands-on has been a definite advantage.

The course has made me aware that there is so much that can be done to spectacle lenses, as well as in the other observations for patients' eye, in order to ensure that they have the best quality of vision possible.

James Lyon

BSc (Hons) Real Estate Management 2007 -2010 (graduated with 1st class honours)

I was attracted to studying at Anglia Ruskin as I had read that a significant amount of investment was being put into the institution. The location suited me as I live in the London suburbs so access was easy via car or train.

I have most enjoyed the practical side of the course. It is much easier to relate to a situation when you can see the physical aspect of your project or report. Not only is the course accredited by the RICS, allowing candidates to progress towards their APC qualification, it also gives an insight into other industry professionals and their roles within the built environment.

Studying at Anglia Ruskin University has made me realise that there are no boundaries and you can certainly reap the rewards if you manage your time wisely by working hard but also by having a good time.


Clare Burns

BSc (Hons) Audio Music Technology, 2009 -2012

The course provides excellent experience and improves your skills to work in film, television and electronics as a live sound engineer or studio engineer and to work across faculties helping media and film students build up their portfolio. Lecturers encourage and support cross faculty communication so everyone can produce the best portfolios possible throughout their university experience.

I now have a place on the MSc Audio and Video Technology course here at Anglia Ruskin and look forward to creating sound effects on films and in television on which my undergraduate course has helped me build the foundations to further my skills as an engineer.

I cannot thank all my lecturers enough for all the support and devotion they have given to me and the course to truly make the past three years a smooth and amazing experience and I can honestly say that no university could have done any better.

Razvan Ioan Dinita

BSc (Hons) Computer Science and Internet Technology, 2008 - 2011 (graduated with 2:1)

The course definitely exceeded my expectations, allowing me to grow professionally and to form many connections and relationships with people from all over the world, as well as from the local, national and international industry companies. This also allowed me to have access to many job offers and internships over the years.

My career path has presented nothing but great opportunities since then. I have already published several academic papers and presented my work at two international conferences and formed relationships with many great people from the research world.

I cannot imagine what my life would have been like if I had applied anywhere else. So far I have had access to many great opportunities, facilities and a lot of support from everyone at Anglia Ruskin.

Julie Mortimer - Chelmsford

BSc (Hons) Construction Management (part-time), 3rd year

As a working mum I needed to study within a reasonable travelling distance from home and I was fortunate that Anglia Ruskin offered the exact course I looking for on a part-time basis. The course has mostly definitely been one of the most rewarding things I have ever undertaken. I thought as part-time student I would feel very much on the outside of University life, but due to the huge effort of staff, I have not felt this at all. At times when I have struggled with the workload, there has always been support and encouragement. Staff respond quickly to enquiries, which is so important when you only attend the campus one day a week.

My group of fellow part-time students have been a delight. We have supported each other and learnt to maximise our individual contributions to best effect in our team work.
