In 1858 John Ruskin opened a School of Art in Cambridge, laying the foundation for the institution which became a university in 1992 and took the name Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) in 2005. In 2014 ARU was named the UK Entrepreneurial University of the Year at the Times Higher Education (THE) Awards 2014.
Today, Anglia Ruskin University is a modern, global university. 35,000 students from 177 countries gain qualifications in four continents. Each year, the university also helps some 2,000 businesses to grow quicker and partner with organisations to deliver a spectrum of educational and commercial projects.
