Based in the heart of the city of London, ARU London focuses on delivering a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses of the highest calibre.

Our central location, convenient transport links and established relationships across the city all come together to help you take advantage of studying in one of the world’s best student cities*. Choosing to study in a leading global city famed for history, business, culture and one of the truly international capitals of the world will not disappoint.

ARU London is the perfect place for you to gain the knowledge which will propel you to a successful career. We have a focus on your employability during and after your degree, aiming to give you unprecedented access to a host of potential employers and careers. Our Employability Scheme runs alongside every course, so you graduate with an excellent degree and the skills to achieve your full potential.

By studying at ARU London, you can be sure of academic standards and the quality of learning opportunities. Not only are our lecturers highly qualified, they also boast significant real-world business experience. That means you don’t just receive theoretical knowledge from textbooks, but valuable practical knowledge, too.

We're passionate about the education we deliver.


Throughout your university life, you can collect a small library's worth of academic text books. These not-so-little things will help you get a good degree but can also be a financial expense. We know the price tag of your reading materials, and that's why we support our students by supplying the core textbook for each of your modules for free.

For all new students starting in 2019/20 we will be providing eBooks instead of a hard copy. eBooks can be delivered to you instantly, accessed through mobile devices, accommodate various learning styles and have an interactive search (beats scrolling through hundreds of pages). During your orientation you will learn how to access your eBooks and how best to use them.

Employability Scheme

Employability is key at ARU London. Through our Employability Scheme, we give you the chance to connect with employers, build your personal capabilities and maximise your employment potential.


We’ve structured our degrees to be taught across a unique two- to three-day timetable. Our timetable won’t only cut down on your travel costs, but will also allow you to find meaningful part-time work. As a result, ARU London students can begin saving towards their tuition fee or living costs immediately and have the opportunity to graduate with little to no outstanding loan.

We also offer an evening and weekend study mode for selected undergraduate degrees. These full-time options can be an ideal solution if you're looking to start a degree but the standard daytime timetable doesn’t work for you.

Travel bursary

If you’re new to the London commute, you’ll soon realise that a helping hand with travel expenses can be really valuable. To be eligible for our travel bursary you will require:

  • a minimum 90% attendance across all modules
  • all assessment submissions deadlines to have been met.

If the above requirements are met at the end of Semester 1, we'll pay £250 into your bank account to support travel. If the above requirements are met at the end of Semester 2, we'll pay a further £250 into your bank account to support travel.
Full terms and conditions are available on our website.
