What I would highlight: My course (computing) is very interesting, fun and challenging; challenging in the sense that you want to do better. My study materials are very useful, the library have all the books I need for my study and leads me the right part to doing references, citation and quotation. My tutor, student representative, student support team are always there for me to make sure that am on the right path and am enjoying my course. My course computing is a very good course, it focus is on solving problems and bringing ideas to solving world problems.
What could be improved: My suggestions to improve the university are: A live chat should be made where student can communicate with each other about the course. Social activities and quiz. This will help the students bring out the best in them. Video lecturing which will help the students to understand the lecture better on their quite time.

What I would highlight: My business course actually deals with my own company. When I finish this university studies for their next 3 years, I want to expand my company to an international company. Anglia Ruskin University has actually been one of the top universities for business studies in the last 5 to 6 years and they have a very good reputation for business students. That is one of the reasons why I wanted to select Anglia Ruskin University from the top universities for my studies Cambridge is one of the best places to live, it is very diverse and noisy, nice architecture, the best of all. It is a very amazing place to study; the environment is really nice, great lecturers, good support team, and good facilities; so I think Anglia Ruskin would be a top choice for any students across the world who want to come and study. It is the best place to be.
