How many hours a week must I study?
The number of hours can vary according to the course, but you will have at least 18 classroom hours per week.
Do I have to attend all my classes?
You are expected to attend all classes unless you are ill or have personal problems, such as bereavement. Please inform the administrative staff if this is the case. Other factors, such as moving house, travel problems or getting up late will not be accepted as excuses. If you are on a student visa, the UK Border Agency expects you to maintain at least a 90% attendance record.
Are the tutors employed by Anglia Ruskin or by the School?
All tutors are employed directly by the School and we work with Anglia Ruskin University and the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) to be certain that they meet stringent conditions which prove their suitability to teach at University level. All have rich industry and academic experience which gives them the flexibility to engage with students and the curriculum from multiple standpoints.
Why do the English Language entry requirements differ from those set by the UKBA?
The English Language requirements for acceptance on to the degree programmes match those set by Anglia Ruskin University. This is the level judged to be a necessary minimum for students studying for such a degree and is set in order to ensure that those who are accepted onto a programme are able to cope and that academic standards are maintained.
Would I be considered to be a home student or an international student?
If you are an EU national or have been granted indefinite leave to remain in the UK, you would be classed as a home student. If this is not the case you would be classed as an international student.
Do you offer work placements?
At present we do not offer any placement services. This is due to the regulations which govern private colleges in the UK preventing it.
I have been delayed and will not be able to start on time. What should I do?
In exceptional circumstances, such as a delay with your visa, we would allow you to start up to three weeks into the course. If you are unable to join the programme in the term you have been accepted for, we can normally defer your enrolment until the next term. Please contact our Admissions Office at the earliest opportunity.
