In the last Research Assessment Exercise we achieved outstanding success, with four subject areas rated as having ‘world-leading’ research, five subjects as having ‘international’ level research, and History and English being rated among the best in the country. We support 11 international research clusters, ranging from the Centre for Children’s Book Studies to the Justice and Communities Research Unit, and our Cultures of the Digital Economy research institute.

We look forward to welcoming you in the future.

This programme appealed to me immediately as it covered a very wide range of areas in film studies including theory and practice. In these last three years, I have become immersed in so many creative activities that have helped me to grow personally and professionally. I have worked for the Cambridge Film Festival, I co-produced a short film, one of my video works was screened at an international film festival, another at the Arts Picturehouse in a special female filmmaker’s screening. In addition, I was awarded a grant by Anglia Ruskin University to go and participate in a unique silent film festival in Italy, Le Giornate Del Cinema Muto. I visited Venice Architecture Biennale and got an artist residency in Germany for two months, where I taught a video production course and programmed a film-screening event. Most recently my 16mm film was screened at Serpentine Gallery along with many other artist filmmakers. Name: Deniz Johns Courses: BA (Hons) Film Studies Nationality: Turkish

To be accepted by two conferences as a speaker was not something I expected before I started this course. When I look back at my studies in the last two years, what I clearly see is that I would not be able to come to this point without the knowledge the course has given me and without my supervisor's help and feedback. Choosing this course was one of the best decisions I took for my career.

It was clear that the MA Film and Television Production would help me to not only further develop my existing skills, but also to learn new techniques, obtain relevant theoretical and practical knowledge and expand my abilities. I have had a great time during the MA Film and Television Production, and have found many opportunities to explore and gain the knowledge necessary for success as a professional in the future. My ambition is to become a Producer/ Director and I am certain that with the experience and knowledge I am gaining through the course modules and the great support from my module leader, I will be able to achieve my goal.

Name: Pedro Uviedo Course: MA Film and TV Production Nationality: Venezuelan

I can confidently say that MA Printmaking has extremely encouraged my creativity. All different equipment is available in the printmaking studio to assist students in innovation and inspiration. In the studio, we have learnt how to use the equipment with the different techniques in a very effective manner. The tutors were extremely supportive and co-operative in making this learning experience an invaluable one.

I undertook the Overseas Nursing Programme (ONP) at Anglia Ruskin University because it offered me the chance to improve my practical skills as a Nurse and provided me with the chance of fulfilling my dream of registering as a Nurse in the UK. The course has enabled me to gain an insight into the differences between working as a nurse in India and the National Health Service (NHS), meaning I was able to gain exposure to more areas of nursing and gain a greater understanding of nursing in the UK. Initially I found the academic side of the course very different to how I studied back home in India, but thanks to the excellent support that I received from my tutors and my fellow colleagues I was able to quickly adapt and successfully complete the course. I am planning to undertake further continuing professional development training with Anglia Ruskin.

Name: Asha Joseph Course: Overseas Nursing Programme Nationality: Indian

I would recommend the course to those that want to be trained as critical, contemporary and diverse public health officers. Although you may have to read a lot, you get more critical in global issues and refined in your technical writing abilities. Help is also readily available from dedicated tutors and friendly course administrators. I enjoy our lectures, especially our lively group discussions. I learn a lot about different countries, especially with my classmates coming from different parts of the world. It is like getting a sneak preview of their world and their culture, this makes it more exciting.

I have always wanted to study in the UK and the Public Health course at Anglia Ruskin University was recommended to me by several friends who had already studied here. They told me that the campus, its facilities and the support given to students were all excellent and I have to say they were right! The campus is modern with excellent library and classroom facilities, my tutors are all extremely friendly and approachable. “I am really enjoying my studies, particularly our research methods and non-communicable disease management modules. I am really keen to undertake more research in communicable disease management, possibly within a PhD here at Anglia Ruskin. “During the course I have been given excellent support from my tutors and have been able to undertake field trips to London, specifically looking at waste management systems; it was great to be able to go and see how things are done first-hand. I have also been able to take part in and help to organise a range of public health related conferences. “I am now a member of the Royal Society for Public Health and joined the American Society for Nutrition. I would 100% recommend my course to anyone thinking of studying Public Health in the UK, the course has helped me to develop both personally and professionally and allowed me to have a greater understanding of effective public health practice and how to tackle inequalities in health.

I was initially attracted to the course because there aren’t really any architectural technology courses run back home, so thinking about the future I wanted to be amongst the first from my country to study this subject. I like that we have to understand every step of the architecture process so it’s very interesting. I also like the technology part as it involves all aspects of architecture. My plans for the future are to finish my degree with honours, and then go back home and continue with my company for three to four years and develop it, then I would like to come back to the UK to study a Masters degree and maybe a PhD later on.

Optometry is challenging as well as interesting. You will have the opportunity to explore the various aspects of the science of light with respect to vision and in addition, develop mathematical skills which will help you in practice. Furthermore, if you like the thought of helping people, this course offers the human touch which means you will have to deal with patients while delivering the best standards as a healthcare professional. I am particularly delighted to say that the course is above my expectations. With the lecturers available whenever there is a part of the course, from early mornings in their office to even late nights through emails, coupled with the rich resources in terms of textbooks and study spaces offered by Anglia Ruskin University’s library. The eye clinic of Anglia Ruskin University is well equipped for the student to explore and enjoy the subject and its applications. From keratoscopy to probing into the inner features of the eye, a whole range of equipment is available to help us in our task. I am delighted to say that studying at Anglia Ruskin University is a pleasurable experience. Name: Ali Subratty Course: Optometry Nationality: Mauritian

Winners in Business University is not just about the academic learning, it is about gaining skills and experience, networking socially and having something interesting to write on your Curriculum Vitae (CV). You will have the opportunity to enter business competitions and challenges in which our students have an excellent success record. These challenges are designed to showcase business skills and give students an opportunity to demonstrate their abilities to not only their peers, but distinguished judges from within the business world.

The course has met my expectations in the sense that I am learning different theories about marketing and management. I have also done some group project work, and as part of my marketing research module, I was able to liaise with an external company.

You will also have an opportunity to attend events where you can meet ‘real-life’ employers who will provide a valuable resource as you explore your future career options. You will be able to take part in company visits giving you the opportunity to see first-hand the ‘behind-the-scenes’ operations of major international organisations linking your learning and theories to practice.

The course is related to industry, and there have been additional lectures with entrepreneurs as guest speakers, which have been useful to learn from someone ‘in the business’. Name: Cédric Deur Course: MSc Marketing Management Practice Nationality: French

Research Degrees We have a community of around 450 research students based in our four Faculties: Faculty of Arts, Law and Social Sciences (ALSS) Faculty of Health, Social Care & Education (HSC&E) Faculty of Science & Technology (S&T) Lord Ashcroft International Business School (LAIBS) Most students are undertaking research towards a doctorate. There are several types of doctorate degree: the traditional doctorate, namely Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), the practice-based doctorate, the Professional Doctorate (DProf) and PhD on the basis of published work. An applicant may also seek admission to study for a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) or Professional Masters. Each of the four Faculties has a Director of Research, a Director of Research Students and a Research Administrator. All research students, with the exception of those registered for a PhD by Published Work or MD by Published Work, will have a supervisory team. In the first stage of their research, Professional Doctorate students, however, are supported by an academic adviser and the Programme Director. Research students registered for a PhD by Published Work or MD by Published Work have an academic adviser(s) rather than a supervisory team. Research students need to adhere to the Research Degrees Regulations, which are updated annually. The following section describes the different types of Doctorate in more detail.

Types of Doctorate Doctor and Master of Philosophy (PhD/MPhil) Generally, the candidate identifies an area where significant new knowledge or understanding may be generated. Having identified an intellectual problem (‘gap in knowledge’) the candidate establishes the research question or hypothesis. The framework for undertaking the research is then formulated. Full-time PhD students normally complete within three to four years. MPhil candidates also critically investigate and evaluate an approved topic and must demonstrate an understanding of research methods appropriate to the chosen field. We offer PhD and MPhil study across a wide range of subject areas and in each of our four Faculties. Professional Doctorate (DProf) The Professional Doctorate has the expectation of enhancing and making a difference to practice. The candidate is expected to draw on theory in explaining and understanding research. Many DProf candidates carry out research in their own work-place, given that they are particularly well-placed to do this. DProf programmes at Anglia Ruskin University are in the following subject areas: ■ Business Administration (DBA)

■ Practical Theology

■ Health and Social Care

■ Laws

■ Education (EdD)

28

International Prospectus 2013

■ Built Environment


Practice-based Doctorate Practice-based Doctorates include practice as an integral component (or theorise that practice). This type of doctorate advances knowledge partly by means of practice. Creative work must be accompanied by a written component (thesis or commentary), the length of which must fall within the boundaries established by the Research Degrees Regulations. PhD on the basis of Published Work Candidates who have published work, normally written within the last ten years, that demonstrates an independent and original contribution to knowledge and an understanding of research methods, may apply to establish a prima facie case for the award of a PhD or MPhil. How to apply To help you decide on the area in which you wish to apply to undertake research leading to a research degree, we recommend you first look at our list of research subject areas available at:

лл Visit: www.anglia.ac.uk/researchprogrammes Our application form (including guidance on requirements for your research proposal) is available for download from our website.

лл Visit: www.anglia.ac.uk/research/apply Entry requirements If you are an international student wishing to apply to study for direct entry to a doctorate, you will need to show evidence of having studied at a level equivalent to that of a UK Masters Degree, which includes training in research.

Each of our students is allocated a supervisory team which will consist of a first and second supervisor, with additional members added if necessary. ALSS researchers, both staff and students, participate in a number of research networks at both Faculty and University level. These include the Cultures of the Digital Economy Research Institute (CoDE), the Fine Art Research Unit, Reinventing the Renaissance, the Research Unit for Intercultural and Transcultural Studies and the Music for Health Research Unit.

Faculty of Health, Social Care & Education research degrees

Visit our Research Clusters page for more details of these and other networks within the Faculty.

The Faculty’s reputation for undertaking high-quality, meaningful and timely research continues to grow. There are a number of international collaborations with partners in Israel, Moscow, Ukraine, Canada, the United States of America and elsewhere.

лл Visit: www.anglia.ac.uk/alssresearch There are a number of research networks which operate across the Faculty and wider University and many of these are interdisciplinary, bringing together diverse experiences of academics, researchers and practitioners. These operate informally and more formally through our extensive research network. As a Faculty we host a series of postgraduate research events including seminars, meetings and postgraduate training (in addition to the University-wide training programme). We have an on-going programme of events for all students to encourage integration within the wider student and academic community including guest lecturers, quiz nights, art exhibitions, free Friday concerts and other social events. We also specialise in offering specific support for students who may be undertaking practice-based research for the first time. Two large study rooms, equipped with computers, are dedicated to the Faculty’s research students.

Research is an integral part of the Faculty of Health, Social Care & Education. We provide a creative and energetic environment for undertaking research that addresses real issues across the full spectrum of health, social care and education. Research units academics, researchers, postgraduate students, research users and service users work together in a shared community of enquiry.

Researchers within our Faculty are involved in multiple collaborations with local, national and international agencies in the statutory and voluntary sectors. One of our primary goals is to expand and develop research and scholarly activities across a number of health, social care and educational themes. We currently focus on three core areas: childhood in society and social inclusion, communities and participation, and early childhood research. Additional work is developing around nursing research and practice-based education. We currently support almost 100 research degree students in their studies towards a Master of Philosophy (MPhil), Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Doctor of Medicine (MD) or Professional Doctorate (PrD) in Health and Social Care. You will enter the programme as part of a cohort, normally at the start of the academic year in September or in January. However, registration outside these dates is permitted. Study to MPhil or PhD can be full-time or parttime, but only part-time study is available for PrD. While

there is potential to transfer from MPhil to PhD (or viceversa), the conceptual differences between PhD and PrD means that at present there is no possibility of transferring from a PhD to a PrD programme (or vice-versa). Study for MPhil/PhD requires you to undertake an in-depth research study that can relate specifically to your own practice, but alternatively can relate to the wider sphere of your practice, or perhaps to theory underpinning that practice. The PrD differs from MPhil/PhD in that the study must be explicitly located within your own practice and employing organisation. Accordingly, the focus of the study is anticipated to relate to the needs of the employer. Our Faculty was the first to establish a combined (interdisciplinary) professional doctorate in 2002 and the award has recently been revalidated to introduce more flexibility through the introduction of intermediate awards towards PrD registration.

Faculty of Science & Technology research degrees Our research has been a story of continued and accelerating expansion. Our research profile emphasises our commitments to developing close links with industry, the professions, business and the public sector and a strong involvement with the development of the regional economy. Research is a particular strength of the Faculty of Science & Technology, having been rated ‘worldleading’ or of ‘international’ quality for our Psychology, Vision, and Environmental Sciences research in our RAE 2008 submission. We currently have 130 research students in our Faculty, over a quarter of whom are international students. Our Faculty hosts 14 research groups in which our research can be undertaken to PhD or MPhil level. Our research groups include: ■■ Anglia Vision Research ■■ Animal and Environmental Research Group

■■ Equine Research Anglia

■■ Applied Social and Health Psychology

Members of our Faculty are given the opportunity to present their research in the form of either papers or posters. Conference delegates can also participate in a wide variety of workshops and presentations at the conference. Not only can students hone their presentation skills, but our conference also give students great networking opportunities with Faculty staff, students, representatives from other departments and researchers from around the world. For further details:

лл Visit: www.anglia.ac.uk/fstconference In addition, each of our departments offers our MPhil/ PhD/DProf students the opportunity to present at lunchtime seminars. Departments plan a series of seminars throughout the academic year giving students the opportunity to present their work to colleagues from across Anglia Ruskin.

Lord Ashcroft International Business School research degrees Research activity within Lord Ashcroft International Business School (LAIBS) is aligned with our strategic aim of being ‘the UK’s leading practice-based, international business school’. The overarching research framework is based on a knowledge-management model, incorporating knowledge creation, application, exploitation and dissemination. Currently we have around 60 research students, a third of whom are international students.


Our focus is on developing knowledge and understanding of international management practice in private, public and the third sectors. LAIBS researchers have expertise in a number of key international management practice areas: ■■ Communication, Ethics and Culture in International Business ■■ Corporate Social Responsibility ■■ Economic Paradigms, Models and Methodologies ■■ Competition Policy ■■ Industrial Organisation ■■ Economic Geography ■■ Economics of Network ■■ Entrepreneurship and SME Internationalisation ■■ Innovation, Knowledge and Information Economies

Our Research Institute and Centres The Lord Ashcroft International Business School has established the Institute for International Management Practice (IIMP) to provide an impetus to, and a focus for, internationally recognised applied business research. The Institute engages with businesses and organisations to create new knowledge and insights into international management practices, helping understand their impact upon organisational performance and innovation, and on economic and cultural development - at national and transnational levels. The IIMP translates this business insight and delivers it to the international business community in a way that has impact, relevance and added-value. Some of the specific themes being pursued as part of the IIMP's mission are:

■■ International Tourism

■■ the creation and nurturing of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in developing nations

■■ Tourism Marketing

■■ the internationalisation of SMEs

■■ Sustainable Tourism

■■ open Innovation and its implications for small business

■■ Urban Tourism and Event Management ■■ New Public Service Management and Change ■■ Social Enterprise

■■ a new approach to Enterprise and Entrepreneurship education at 1st degree level

■■ Spirituality in the Workplace

■■ development of an enterprise culture in Central European states (former Soviet communist states)

■■ Technology and International Entrepreneurship

■■ the Financing of Enterprise and Early Stage Business.

Supervision and academic support A suitable supervisory team is allocated to each research student. Each team has 2 academic supervisors. The first one is usually an internal member (Anglia Ruskin University academic) and the second supervisor can be either an internal or an external member, depending on the subject area. Although we have highly knowledgeable academic staff, we also use external expertise in order to get a better insight into the selected topic or subject. In addition to the mandatory training organised by us (from RDCS), we also offer a series of workshops and training within the Faculty. Facilities support We are located in the new Lord Ashcroft Building, where a research area has been developed for our research students. They can easily access a computer, desk and other facilities (i.e. printer, scanner, etc.). The University Library is also situated in the same building and is open 24/7 during semester time.

In support of these themes, the IIMP has created an international research centre for the Caribbean (in partnership with the School of Accounting and Management in Trinidad and Tobago), and supports two major research centres within LAIBS: the Centre for Enterprise Development and Research (CEDAR) and the Centre for Innovation in International Business(CIIB).

Cost of Living The UK Border Agency sets the minimum living cost requirements for students studying in universities outside London as £845 per month. Don't forget that your budget should reflect your own priorities - for example, you may wish to spend a little more on books and a little less on clothes, for example. An example budget is available on our website.

Student Visas and Immigration In 2009 the UK introduced a new immigration system for anyone wishing to enter the UK from outside the European Economic Area called the Points Based System (PBS). The visa route for students is called Tier 4. Anglia Ruskin University is a licensed sponsor under the Points Based System, and is able to issue the necessary documentation to assist students in obtaining entry clearance to the UK. If you would like further information about applying for a visa, you can either contact the British Embassy or High Commission in your home country, or visit:

лл Visit: www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/visas-immigration/studying Students studying with Anglia Ruskin for longer than six months If you are joining Anglia Ruskin University to undertake a course of study that requires you to be based in the UK for longer than six months, we will issue you with the necessary documentation to apply for a visa under Tier 4 of the Points Based System. Once you have an unconditional offer of a place at Anglia Ruskin University we will issue you a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS). The CAS is an electronic record held on the UKBA system, and includes a lot of information about you and your offer of a university place, such as your passport number, details of the supporting documents you have provided as part of your course application, and information about the University. Your CAS will be issued when you have fulfilled all the conditions of your offer of a place at Anglia Ruskin. This will usually include payment of the required deposit. Once we have issued a CAS for you, we will send you a letter outlining the details of your CAS, including the 'CAS number' that you will need to include on your visa application. Once you have received this, you can apply for your visa.

Students studying with Anglia Ruskin for six months or less If you are joining Anglia Ruskin University to undertake a course of study that requires you to be based in the UK for six months or less, we will issue you with the necessary documentation to apply for a Student Visitor Visa. A Student Visitor Visa allows you to enter the UK and study for six months or less. This applies particularly to students who are coming to study on one semester programmes (such as Study Abroad) or are undertaking a 'dual award' programme where less than six months of the course is based in the UK. If you are coming to Anglia Ruskin University to study an English language course lasting less than six months, but intend to then continue studying at Anglia on a degree programme, we may be able to issue you with a Tier 4 Student Visa under the Points Based System.

Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) clearance certification from The Foreign and Commonwealth Office International applicants who are applying for postgraduate level courses in certain science or technology subjects (and who are not from either a European Economic Area country or Switzerland) will require ATAS clearance certification from The Foreign and Commonwealth Office. At Anglia Ruskin University, this will mainly apply to students undertaking Research degrees in the Faculties of Science and Technology, and Health, Social Care & Education. If you require an ATAS certificate, we will inform you of this requirement in your offer letter and provide you with details to support your ATAS application. For more information about ATAS including guidance on submitting an application:

Further Information Frequently Asked Questions Q. Do you have an office in my country? Do you visit my country? A. We have a regional office in Pakistan, and are represented by student recruitment companies (‘agents’) in many other countries. Staff from our International Office also spend a lot of time visiting countries to meet and interview students. You can find details of overseas representatives and visits on our website:

лл Visit: www.anglia.ac.uk/visits Q. What kind of support is available for international students? A. The International Student Advice Service can provide visa and immigration advice (including advice on working entitlements) as well as general support for international students. For more information about general support for international students:

лл Visit: www.anglia.ac.uk/studentsupport Q. Do you offer an Orientation programme? A. Yes, there is an International Orientation Programme in both September and January to welcome new international students. If you would like to find out about programme dates and information on how to book a place in this programme.

лл Visit: www.anglia.ac.uk/internationalarrivals Q. Can I work part-time? A. Students on a Tier 4 Student Visa can usually work up to 20 hours per week during term time. Our University Employment Bureau can assist you in finding part-time work. Q. Do I need to take care of my medical insurance? A. It is advisable to check whether you will be covered by your own medical insurance from your home country while you are in the UK. If not, it is highly recommended that you take out extra private medical insurance to cover your stay in the UK before you travel. Students studying a course for longer than six months are entitled to free UK state healthcare (NHS). This will in most cases cover any treatment (except dental care) by a doctor or in hospital.

However, insurance is recommended as the NHS will not cover all costs in the event of a serious illness. Endsleigh Insurance, in conjunction with UKCISA, has a special policy for international students. If you are on a programme that is shorter than six months, and you are not from an EU country or one with a reciprocal healthcare arrangement, you will not receive free health care from the NHS and so should take out medical insurance before you leave home. For more details about Endsleigh Insurance:

лл Visit: www.endsleigh.co.uk and click on 'students' Q. Will you help me find internships or work experience? A. Our Faculties have links with a number of different companies, and can certainly advise you in ways of finding placements or internships. Q. Do you have a Visiting Student programme? A. Yes, we welcome one semester or one year visiting international students. Please contact us for more information or visit our website:

лл Visit: www.anglia.ac.uk/studyabroad Q. Do you have prayer facilities? A. The University Chaplaincy offers dedicated prayer rooms at both campuses for students of the Islamic faith, as well as quiet space for contemplation and prayer open to students of all faiths. Q. When will I receive information about arriving at Anglia Ruskin? A. You will receive an email with arrival information to the address on your application form at least six weeks before the start of your course. This information will also be uploaded onto our website at:

лл Visit: www.anglia.ac.uk/internationalarrivals Q. Can I visit your University, if I am in the UK? A. Yes, you can either come to one of our Open Days or we can arrange a tour around our campuses and meetings with academics in your chosen area of studies.
