We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
A Masters at ARU could help you find your way into something extraordinary. Whatever your reasons for study, we offer a range of courses that start in both September and January, and with over 85 Masters degrees offering full and part-time study options, you will find the flexibility you need to get you there.
With postgraduates typically earning 40% more than those without any degrees and around £6,000 more than a student with an undergraduate degree (Graduate Labour Market Statistics 2018) there has never been a better time to get your Masters. Develop your CV, increasing your earning potential and career progression all while studying something you love.
ARU’s multi-million pound facilities will enhance your industry experience. Among the developments is our £45m Cambridge Science Centre which offers students and researchers in psychology, animal biology, biomedical science and forensics the most up-to-date facilities in which to develop their STEM careers. In 2018 we also established two new Law Clinics and we’re planning to invest a further £200m over the next ten years into our campuses.
Our 3 campuses in Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough are made up of excellent facilities, award-winning and research-active lecturers and a thriving academic community.

Whether you’re keen to change the direction of your career, gain a promotion, get back to work or you’re simply eager to keep your brain active, distance learning is the ideal solution. You can study a course in your own time and around other commitments, such as your job, children or hobbies.
At Anglia Ruskin University, we offer an extensive range of distance learning courses, which you can study from a place that suits you, as well as benefitting from full support throughout your course.
Using our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), you can access a comprehensive range of study resources, take part in online workshops and join lively discussion boards to chat about ideas and assignments. In addition, our expert tutors are on hand to offer regular feedback and advice.
Depending which subject you choose to study, you may have the opportunity to join us on campus for some residential workshops or study days. In fact, if you live close to one of our campuses, you're more than welcome to pop in to use the libraries and facilities at any time.
Importantly, we look forward to welcoming you to our campuses to graduate upon the successful completion of your course.
Whether you aim to work in the creative industries or the social sciences, the legal profession or public service, we’ll provide you with the skills and knowledge you need for professional life.
Our lively, diverse community and ambitious academic environment will broaden your horizons and help you develop your full potential - many of our courses give you the chance to learn another language, study abroad or undertake work placements as you study.**
