2045.jpg My time at Anglia Ruskin was a great experience; I enjoyed every bit of my study year. The admissions process was quite easy and the admissions team actually did a fantastic job and they were very helpful all the way. The induction helped in making things easy to find for international students.

Studying Engineering Management gave me a whole lot of information, knowledge and skills. Lecturers were great and had a vast knowledge of their individual fields, and each of them were always ready to assist and share their knowledge with students in respect to assignments and course work. I will be applying the knowledge and skills gained during my study year in a career in operation management, and I would love to complete my PhD here. I had a wonderful experience in the short period I spent at Anglia Ruskin University!
