Meet the Student Services team

Student Services team member

Our Student Services Team is here to support you during your studies.

We can help you before you arrive at Anglia Ruskin and throughout your course. Check out the Student Services web pages for help with all aspects of university life including money, academic advice, personal support, ways to meet people and get involved, and jobs and employability.

If you have any general queries while you’re on campus, drop in to see the friendly and helpful iCentre team.

Make the most of your studies

Study Skills Plus coaching and workshop sessions can help you develop and refine your writing, planning and exam skills. Specialist advisers offer information and support if you have or are concerned about a disability, medical condition or specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia. They can help you with concerns about learning difficulties, or extra support with disabilities and medical conditions. 

Meanwhile, our International Student Advice Service offers visa and immigration advice and organises a special welcome programme for international students.

Make yourself employable

We have an active Employability Service that provides information, advice and guidance on career options before you join us and while you’re here. Our Employability and Careers Advisers will give you opportunities to meet employers, develop transferable skills, and increase your chances of finding work after graduation.

Our on-site recruitment agency, the Employment Bureau, organises paid part-time temporary work so you can earn some money and learn new skills while studying. They can also help you find a permanent job once you’ve graduated.

Get active

If you’re looking to make new friends, get active and have fun, why not try a new activity with Team ARU? You can join a sports club, take part in classes, or attend relaxed campus sport sessions.

Personal support

You can talk confidentially about personal worries with our Counselling and Wellbeing Service

If you have a disability, medical condition or learning difficulty and need specific arrangements to be made, you can speak to the Disability and Dyslexia Support Service, and have your study needs assessed at the Anglia Access Centre.

And we’ve already mentioned our iCentre team, who can answer general queries about your studies and your time at university.

Help with your money

If you’re struggling with your student funding or need advice on how to take control of your money, drop in to our Student Money Advice Service. You can get advice on funding, benefits, other sources of income, managing your money and lots of other finance-related issues. If it’s extra cash you’re after, our Employment Bureau is here to help you secure paid part-time work to fit around your studies.

Academic advice and support

If you need help with your module choices or want friendly and professional guidance about your studies, speak to our Student Advisers. They’ll help you deal with any problems you have with academic life.


Our Chaplaincy is available to all students irrespective of faith or commitment. It exists to support your learning experience at Anglia Ruskin, including any spiritual and personal issues you may want to discuss in confidence.

If you’re looking for a chance to do some volunteering, our Chaplaincy service runs annual trips where you can experience new places and help local communities.

Help for international students

Our International Student Advice Service offers advice and information to current and prospective international students (from within and outside the EU).

When you arrive at Anglia Ruskin, our Orientation and Welcome programme will help you settle in to your new life with us. Our specialist advisers can also help with immigration matters, tuition fee advice, health, and working entitlements in the UK.
