Entry requirements

Academic qualification equivalents

for students coming from Ireland to Anglia Ruskin

If you’re applying for an undergraduate course (year 1 entry) you must hold one of the following:

  • Irish Leaving Certificate with applicable number of required UCAS Tariff points for your chosen course from 5 Highers. Most ARU courses require between 200–300 UCAS Tariff points (see UCAS tariff calculator)
  • Successful completion of relevant FETAC/QQI qualification

If you’re applying for a postgraduate taught course you must hold one of the following:

  • Undergraduate Honours degree with minimum Second Class Honours, grade 2
  • a recognised pre-Masters course

Interested in our postgraduate research degrees? Please visit our postgraduate research pages, where you’ll find entry requirements.

Some of our courses may have extra requirements, such as portfolios for art and design courses. These are outlined in our course pages.

If you don't meet academic requirements for undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses, Cambridge Ruskin International College (CRIC) can help. CRIC provides foundation and pre-Masters courses which will help you meet the requirements for our degrees.

English requirements

English language requirements

If English is not your first language you'll need to be able to show you have the required level of English language. This is so we can ensure you'll be able to follow your course.

  • Our standard entry criteria for undergraduate courses is IELTS 6.0 or equivalent, with nothing lower than 5.5 in any of the four elements (listening, speaking, reading and writing).
  • Our standard entry criteria for postgraduate taught and postgraduate research courses is IELTS 6.5, with nothing lower than 5.5 in any of the four elements (listening, speaking, reading and writing).

If you don't meet our English language requirements, our Language Centre offers a range of courses which could help you achieve the level required for entry onto a degree course.

Our Language Centre also offers the English Language Proficiency Test (ELPT) in the UK and overseas. Check our events page for dates or contact our country managers for more information.

How to apply

Apply in two easy steps

Applying to ARU is straightforward, though the process for undergraduates changes from July-September. At this time you can apply to us directly, rather than through UCAS.

Our information page for EU students will tell you a bit more about the application process. And, if you have any questions, we're always on hand to answer them. You can contact us by phone, email or live chat.

Approved agents

It seems we don't have representatives in your country at the moment. 
If you'd like to know more about coming to study at Anglia Ruskin University, please contact us directly at international@anglia.ac.uk and we'll be happy to help.
