Around 150 Anglia Ruskin University staff are available online or over the phone

Around 150 Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) staff will be on hand at Clearing centres in Chelmsford and Cambridge until September to give expert advice to people taking their next steps.

While universities traditionally receive a surge of applications on A-Level and BTEC results day (18 August), Clearing began on 1 July and is open until September. People can apply online, use the live chat facility on the ARU website, or telephone the centres on 01245 686868 to speak to course leaders, academics and admissions professionals.

ARU is recruiting for a wide variety of courses across its four faculties, in subject areas such as the arts, business, health, education and science. Courses on offer in Clearing range from Accounting and Finance to Zoology.

Clearing is the last chance for people to apply to begin their studies at university in the autumn. It is also a route popular with people who may have initially applied earlier in the year, but on receiving their A-Level or BTEC results have changed their mind about what they want to study, or who have got better grades than expected and wish to explore other options.

ARU was placed 1st in the UK for Good Health and Wellbeing in the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings earlier this year, and this year’s National Student Survey reported an increase in student satisfaction across the board.

ARU is the largest provider of Nursing, Midwifery, Health and Social care students in England and there are spaces on courses such as Adult Nursing and Midwifery, which also incorporate clinical placements with partner NHS Trusts, during Clearing.

In the main application cycle, ARU has reported strong interest in creative and sports and exercise sciences courses.

James Rolfe, Chief Operating Officer at Anglia Ruskin University (ARU), said:

“Results day can be a stressful time, but it is also a time of opportunity for all students who have studied hard for their A-Level and BTEC qualifications.

“People decide to apply to university through Clearing for all sorts of reasons, and it is important to stay calm and seek expert advice on your next steps, whether or not you decide to apply to go to university in September.”
