Student life is not only about broadening your knowledge and understanding, it's also about building social skills, confidence and contacts that will help you throughout your professional and personal life.
A timetable that suits you
Not only do we ensure you receive an above average 12 hours of teaching each week but we deliver these across only 2 or 3 days. This structure gives our students the flexibility to secure a successful future whilst receiving a first class education.
We believe our timetable gives you the best chance of securing meaningful part-time work and thus the chance of simultaneously enhancing your employability and easing any money worries you may have.
Each module is delivered through a combination of group lectures and tutorials. In lectures the main ideas and concepts are presented and in tutorials students form smaller groups for an interactive discussion and analysis of the lecture content.
Teaching support at ARUL
If you think you need it, we run English and IT support classes which are open for students to participate in to improve their skills in these areas. Our IT workshops cover a variety of different topics throughout the year and are accessible for novices all the way up to IT wizards. Students are free to pick and choose the sessions they would like to attend.
We also hold a weekly series of “How to…” workshops throughout the semester that focus on topics requested by students to address the common challenges they are facing during university life. The “How to Present Successfully” and “How to get a Promotion” are just a couple of the events in our “How to...” series.
Resources at ARUL
As an ARU student you will have access to ARUL’s Learning Resource Centre, Computer Labs and support classes in numerous subject areas. You will also be able to utilise the extensive online library resources of Anglia Ruskin University to support you throughout your degree. Our online Virtual Learning Environment “VLE” provides you with a wealth of additional information including: lecture notes, further study materials and the ARU e-Library.
You’ll be allocated a personal tutor at the start of your course – they are your first point of contact for questions about your studies. Regular sessions mean your tutor will be up-to-date on your progress and able to offer insightful guidance to help reach your full potential.
