New report shows student satisfaction levels at Anglia Ruskin are highest in East

Anglia Ruskin University has been named as one of the top 10 universities in the country at which to study Nursing.

A new report in the Nursing Times, using data from the latest National Student Survey (NSS), places Anglia Ruskin in joint 10th place, alongside the University of Liverpool, with an overall student satisfaction score of 91%.

In the Nursing Times' Best and worst UK universities for nursing, as rated by students report, Anglia Ruskin is the highest-placed university in the East of England.  In total there are 55 universities across England offering Nursing degrees, with an average student satisfaction score of 85%. 

Professor Ruth Taylor, Dean of the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education, said: 

“We have invested a great deal of time, thought, energy, and resources in enhancing the student experience for our nursing students.  We have done this through working closely with our students to understand what works well for them.  

“The faculty’s values-based approach to student learning, and its strong partnerships with healthcare providers in the region, has transformed the student experience in recent years.  It is wonderful to see these changes reflected in the outcomes of the NSS.”

Nursing degrees in Adult, Mental Health, and Children’s Nursing are taught at the Chelmsford and Cambridge campuses, with Peterborough offering Adult Nursing. 

Anglia Ruskin has regional, national and international partnerships including strong links with over 20 healthcare trusts and organisations, as well as 400 schools across the East.  For further information, visit aru.ac.uk/health-education-medicine-and-social-care
