ARU Writtle

In July, ARU and Writtle University College announced their intention to merge. This will bring many benefits to students and their learning experience by accessing a much larger university network and support system. Writtle courses will continue to be delivered by Writtle staff teams on the 'ARU Writtle' Campus, using specialist facilities and resources. ARU is a vibrant and diverse community, with its Chelmsford campus just 2.5 miles away. So, as well as having access to all the facilities at Writtle, once the merger is complete, students will also gain access to all ARU's support services which include a wider support offering and the use of world-class facilities.
