Meanwhile your problem-solving, numerical and analytical skills will be attractive to employers in industries such as IT, finance and retail.

We work with employers to make sure you graduate with the knowledge and skills they need. They help us review what we teach and how we teach it – and they can offer hands-on, practical opportunities to learn through work-based projects, internships or placements.

Our free Employability Service will help you take practical steps to follow your chosen career path, secure jobs and work experience, or even start your own business.

You might decide to stay at ARU and study for a Masters. We’re planning a range of postgraduate degrees at ARU Peterborough, and there is a selection of existing courses in Cambridge and Chelmsford.
