Airport pick-up service

We will be offering a transfer service from Heathrow airport to our Cambridge and Chelmsford campuses on Monday 9 January. Buses will depart from Heathrow Terminal 3 at 10.30 and 15.30.

Book your place


This transfer service is free of charge and only available to new students. As space on the bus will be limited, you must book in advance.

You should only book a place when you have confirmed flights. If your travel plans change and you need to cancel your booking please email internationalarrivals@aru.ac.uk.

Bookings will close on 22 December 2022.

Entering the UK

Entering the UK may take longer than usual so you should allow at least three hours between your plane landing in the UK and arriving at the meeting point in Terminal 3.
