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.

5.0 06/08/2016
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.
What could be improved: Nothing negative.

Course programme

Want to get published? Learn the all-important techniques by studying some of the world’s most famous writers. Share your writing with published authors and other students in a supportive environment, while developing critical and literary skills that will help you catch the eye of publishers, agents and other employers.

Develop your writing with help from some of the greatest wordsmiths in history. By studying Writing and English Literature, you’ll explore how our most treasured authors approached their craft, and apply this knowledge to your own writing.

Our English literature modules allow you to balance your study of traditional writers like Shakespeare, Milton, Wordsworth, Dickens and Woolf with an exploration of genres such as modern science fiction, children's literature and contemporary women's writing.

On our writing modules, you’ll develop your creative and professional writing skills through independent work as well as in our interactive workshops and seminars. Our teaching staff, many of whom are published authors, will offer invaluable feedback – as will your fellow students. Combining this with an exploration of areas such as grammar, style and critical writing, you’ll discover new ways to express your literary talent.

Our modules will also give you the chance to study your own areas of interest, such as writing for radio, science fiction, film journalism or myth and medievalism. You can even choose to learn another language.

Throughout the course, you’ll be supported by published writers, critics, journalists and professionals from related fields, who can show you the skills and techniques that publishers look for in new writers.

Course Leader: Dr Colette Paul
