Student Support & Initiatives
Throughout a student’s life they often collect a small library worth of academic textbooks, these not so little things will help you get a good degree but can also be a financial burden. ARU London knows that the price tag of your reading materials can be very expensive and that is why we support our students by supplying the core textbook for each of your modules for free. For all new students starting in 2022/23, we will be providing e-books instead of a hard copy.
e-books can be delivered to you instantly, they are portable through a mobile device, they accommodate various learning styles and have an interactive search that beats scrolling through hundreds of pages. During your orientation, you will learn how to access your e-books and how best to use them.
Employability is key at ARU London and is delivered through our Employability Scheme. The scheme gives students the chance to be exposed to employers, build their personal capabilities and so maximise their employment potential.
Scholarships of £2,000 are available for the overall top achievers in Year 0, Year 1 and Year 2.
Students with the highest scores in their Year 1 can achieve the Year 2 scholarships and similarly the top achievers from Year 2 can qualify for the Year 3 scholarship. If you are on a foundation degree, you can also achieve a scholarship if you are a top achiever in Year 0 for a scholarship for Year 1.
ARU London provides a number of scholarships each year across our three postgraduate intakes. All applicants are offered the chance to receive a scholarship of up to 50% off their Master’s Degree.
We’ve structured our degrees to be taught across a unique two-to-three-day timetable. Our timetable won’t only cut down on your travel costs making your Travel Bursary go further, but will also allow you to find meaningful part-time work throughout your studies. Therefore, ARU London students can begin saving towards their tuition fees or living costs immediately.
We also offer an evening and weekend study mode for selected undergraduate degrees. These full-time degrees can be an ideal solution if you are looking to start a degree but a standard daytime timetable doesn’t work for you.
If you’re new to the London commute, you’ll soon realise that throughout your study the pennies quickly add up. All of our undergraduate students are eligible for a Travel Bursary. The Travel Bursary has been designed to help students cover the costs of studying at university in the city. Eligible students can receive a payment of £250 for each semester, with the opportunity of receiving up to £500 per Academic Year.
