ARU Research

Anglia Ruskin's academic excellence was recognised in 2014, as part of the Research Excellence Framework (REF), an exercise which assesses the quality of academic research. Twelve areas of our work were classed as generating world-leading research. The results showed that we're making a significant impact on economies, societies, the environment and culture in all corners of the globe.


This is an excellent way to progress your career, as you can opt to study part-time and focus your thesis on an issue close to you, your employer or industry.

We’re an equally compelling option if you want to pursue an academic career, thanks to our international reputation and the comprehensive research training and development we provide.
