Transforming students’ ideas into positive change

You’re part of the community at ARU so have your say on how your university develops. When you have an idea or want something new, we're here to help you make it happen.


Find Your Course Rep
The New Executive Committee


Reps are students, elected by their peers, who work to champion the views and interests of students. They provide an essential link between you, the Students’ Union and the University.

At Anglia Ruskin University, over 600 of our students volunteer their time to be a Rep. They benefit from experience and opportunities which help to develop key employability skills including communication, negotiation, problem solving and strategic thinking.

All positions are part-time and voluntary.
