“My favourite thing is the opportunities to take part in the different workshops they have on campus… It just opens up really huge opportunities for people.”

Violet Ongele Hindle, BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies

"All the things I learned... go round in my mind when I'm planning for the setting I work in. We've just had our Ofsted inspection and I think it really helped towards that. We were rated Outstanding!"

Lucy Smith, BA (Hons) Montessori Early Childhood Studies

"ARU definitely helped me find my voice and gave me the confidence I needed to pursue other opportunities."

Mitzi Harris, BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies

"I just wanted to learn as much as I could to support my daughter. Then obviously it then spread out to not just her, what about all the others?"

Kate Larsson, BA (Hons) Montessori Early Childhood Studies

"I wanted to be a part of children’s learning and inspire young children to write and be authors themselves - that always gave me such joy."

Emma Speller, BEd (Hons) Primary Education & Head Teacher, Heybridge Primary School
