Anglia Ruskin University Admissions

Undergraduate admissions

You can apply for Anglia Ruskin’s undergraduate degree courses through UCAS. There’s an application link on all our course pages.

When you’re applying to university, there are a few important things to do and dates to remember. Here’s our quick guide.

Do your research

June-September is the best time to think about what courses you’re interested in and where you’d like to study. It’s also a good time to strengthen your personal statement, by getting some work experience or attending a summer school.

From October-June, checking out an open day is really helpful as you’ll meet current students and get to talk to the lecturers who teach the courses. You’ll get a real understanding of what you’ll be doing if you choose that course.

Visit one of our undergraduate Open Days to explore the courses on offer, campuses, accommodation and more.

Start your application

Submit your application to UCAS, who’ll pass it on to the universities you’re interested in. UCAS is the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service and their website is your portal to the world of higher education.

Use UCAS Apply to register your personal details, select up to five choices, and enter your personal statement.

Before you start, choose a professional-looking email address and dig out your exam certificates for details of grades and exam boards
