We value meeting potential students in person, so our officers visit cities around the world to give you a chance to meet them. You can also speak to any of our approved international agents (see 'Approved agents' on this page) in your country about studying at ARU.
Our On Demand Open Day experiences are available 24/7, wherever you are:

Academic entry requirements
for students coming from China to ARU
For entry to a bachelor’s degree (year 1), we will consider the following qualifications:
For entry to a Masters degree, we will consider the following qualifications:
For entry to a research degree, we will consider overseas qualifications equivalent to a UK Masters degree.
Please visit our postgraduate research pages for more information on the application requirements.
The above is a guide only and not all qualifications are listed. There may be additional course requirements, such specific subjects or grades, a portfolio or an interview, for example. These requirements will be detailed on each individual course page.
If you don't hold one of the qualifications above then ARU College can help. ARU College provides foundation, first year and pre-masters courses, designed to prepare you for entry to your chosen degree.
If English is not your first language you will need to be able to show you have the required level of English language. This is so we can ensure you'll be able to follow your course.
If you don't meet our English language requirements, our Language Centre offers a range of courses which could help you achieve the level required for entry onto a degree course.
