Five reasons to start a course in January
Whether you wanted to save before you started university, took six months out after school or you’re simply pursuing the career of your dreams, there are lots of reasons why starting a degree in January can be beneficial. Here are just five.
1. New year, new career
The beginning of a new year makes many of us reflect on our career choices. Join us in January and get started in your dream vocation. Our students have great career prospects with 9 out of 10 in employment or further education six months after graduating*.

2. Gain the competitive edge
By starting in January, you’ll be entering the graduate job market at a different time to those who start in September, giving you an edge. You’ll also be well-placed to meet students starting in September 2017 and 2018, making you better connected.
3. Financially savvy
You can take many of our undergraduate courses part-time, allowing you to work as well as study. You might already have a part-time job you’re keen to keep, but if not the our Employment Bureau advertises local work placements and can advise on career development. If you like to keep on top of your finances, it’s also worth checking out our finance pages for details on the scholarships, grants and loans available.
4. Professional development
You may need an additional qualification in order to progress in your field or to enhance your skills in a particular area. We pride ourselves on offering engaging courses that are relevant to the needs of the industry, with many of them being professionally accredited.
5. Apply direct
If you’re applying in January there’s no need to take the traditional UCAS route. Instead, you can apply directly to Anglia Ruskin. As we receive your application directly, we can process your details quicker and make a quicker decision. What’s more, if you come to our Application Day we can help you apply and may even be able to offer you a place right there and then!
