You want to help people – it’s who you are. But you know that improving lives takes professional training and real-world experience. We’ll give you everything you need to start helping others for a living.
You’re all about improving people’s quality of life. So are we – whether that’s our students or the people you'll be supporting once you're qualified.
At ARU, we’re the largest provider of health, social care and education courses in the East of England, and our School of Education and Social Care offers courses ranging from Early Childhood Education to Public Health and Social Work.
Working in partnership with recognised bodies, local councils, charities and hundreds of schools, we’re accredited and well connected. You'll benefit from those connections, along with opportunities to go on placement, and pioneering research that feeds into our teaching.
Our courses have been designed with your career in mind, so you can be sure that you’ll get practical experience and learn to use the latest facilities used in industry.
