I went to both an Open Day and an Applicant Day at ARU. The University wasn’t my first choice until after attending both. I’ll tell you why. Read more…
Faculty:Science and Engineering
Course: BSc (Hons) Psychology
Hey, I’m Christhannah, I’m currently in my second year studying BSc (Hons) Psychology at ARU in Cambridge.
The decision to choose ARU was pretty easy once I got to know more about the uni and my course. I can honestly say I do not regret it. I have loads of different interests and hobbies. Some of my hobbies are playing tennis, reading and the main one is exploring.
I enjoy the added perks of living in Cambridge because there is always something going on. Also, the scenery gives such a calming effect – useful during exam season. I enjoy going to the gym, walks in the countless parks, and interacting with the faith community in Cambridge.
I’m very active in growing my relationship with God; ARU has a chaplaincy department and there are multiple events and support systems within the uni and around Cambridge that supports that. I currently attend a local church that holds a number of events to support everyone and anyone in their journey. The best part is that you get to make connections with a lot of different students.
I have also been privileged to be able to learn new skills through different events such as Be Your Own Boss seminars, conferences, and the Anglia Language Programme (learning a new language). All of these are available to students at ARU.
ARU has really given me a lot of opportunities to develop as a person and to explore. It is truly a place of growth, diversity and creativity.
