Thinking about applying to university through Clearing? Here are five reasons to take a degree course at ARU.

1. You’re ambitious

You want to succeed on your chosen career path, and we can’t wait to see what you achieve. We work closely with businesses to equip you with in-demand knowledge and skills, to help you get where you want to be.

2. You’re innovative

You have ideas, and you want to make them a reality. That’s where our very own Anglia Ruskin Enterprise Academy (AREA) comes in – we’ll help you access support from like-minded people and get your dream business up and running.

3. You’re courageous

You think big, and you want to make a difference to the world around you. We’re seeking solutions to the challenges faced in our region. Our brand new School of Medicine, the first in Essex, will allow us to teach future generations of doctors, and ease the pressure currently felt by the health sector.

4. You’re community-minded

And we are too – we work with our partners to ensure that people from all backgrounds have the opportunity to achieve their potential by coming to university.

5. You’re proud

Not only of who you are, but of what you know you can accomplish when you put your mind to it. Many of our students and staff have won awards, and you could too.

What is Clearing?

Clearing is an opportunity to reconsider your options, and join a university where you can study something you really want to learn about.

You can apply for uni through Clearing if

  • you didn’t apply before the UCAS deadline
  • your grades are different to what you expected
  • you’ve only just decided to go to uni
  • you’ve changed your mind about what or where you want to study since you originally applied.
