Writtle University College and ARU have merged. Writtle’s full range of college, degree, postgraduate and short courses will still be delivered on the Writtle campus. See our guide to finding Writtle information on this site.


In the Americas, our International Alumni Ambassadors are happy to be the point of contact between ARU and alumni in their respective countries, helping us to maintain our relationship with our international alumni and those living and working overseas.

Our ambassadors help host events for fellow alumni, serve as a contact for students in their area who are interested in ARU, and assist our academic staff and students travelling or studying abroad.

We’d like to expand our Ambassador Network to cover as many countries as possible, so if there isn’t an Ambassador in your country and you’d like to volunteer, please email [email protected].
