Welcome to Anglia Ruskin University
All of us at Anglia Ruskin University are very proud of our association with Cambridge Ruskin International College (CRIC). We fully support the CRIC courses taught across our various campuses because we know they will help aspiring students to achieve success in UK university education. Our relationship with CRIC presents an extraordinary opportunity for students to study and live on a major campus, either in Cambridge or Chelmsford.
Throughout its 150-year history, Anglia Ruskin University has offered undergraduate and postgraduate education characterised by breadth and flexibility as well as academic excellence. This tradition is strengthened through our relationship with CRIC.
Our graduates are expected to display imagination and intellectual rigour, and a practical awareness of industry. These aims are consistent with those of CRIC. That academic quality comes first at CRIC is demonstrated by the involvement of university staff in chairing the CRIC Academic Advisory Committee. The association between the two institutions is designed primarily to offer eligible students an approved route to university studies and ultimately an Anglia Ruskin University degree.
I wish you every success with your studies and look forward to welcoming you to Anglia Ruskin University.
