ARU College Star Awards 2024

On Tuesday 16th April 2024, ARU College came together for a night of celebration at our campuses in Cambridge and Chelmsford. The atmosphere was filled with excitement and anticipation as we gathered to honour the deserving winners of the Star Awards.

The purpose of the Star Awards is to recognise the exceptional accomplishments of both the students and teachers at ARU College. The recipients were nominated by their teachers or students for various categories. Additionally, we had the privilege of showcasing some incredible artwork from our talented Art Foundation Year students during the drink’s reception.

The ceremony was hosted in Cambridge, and we live-streamed to our team and students in Chelmsford, allowing everyone to join in the celebration.
