September 2022 Study Mode

Teaching at ARU College

We offer face-to-face campus teaching (with the exception of Distance Learning courses), supported by our established online learning systems, which provide additional support for individual study and engagement.

 

Your health and wellbeing

Your health and wellbeing is very important to us. Please remember to visit your Health and Wellbeing hub, we have a variety of wellbeing workshops you can get involved in and our Counselling and Wellbeing team is available to all our students.

 

Maintaining a safe environment 

It’s everyone’s responsibility to keep themselves and each other safe and well. We ask all staff, students and visitors to continue to practice safe behaviours when on our campuses.

ARU Community Pledge

We expect everyone coming to our campuses to act responsibly and to commit to our Community Pledge – to help keep our community safe and well.

We ask that everyone at ARU commits to the following:

  • I will act responsibly, taking due care to ensure I protect my health and the health of those around me, and make sure that the areas where we live, work, and study are as safe as they can be.
  • I will show empathy, respect, and consideration to others.

Face Coverings

If you choose to wear a face covering in our buildings we support you to do so, and if you’re on campus and would like to pick up a face covering, they are available for free from the iCentres, reception desks and faculty offices.

Testing

You are no longer required to test before attending campus but if you are unwell with a high temperature and start to display symptoms of COVID-19, please stay at home or leave campus.

Self-isolation

Self-isolation is no longer a legal requirement for those who test positive for COVID-19.

However, if you start to feel unwell, we ask you not to come to campus – to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID, as well as other illnesses. Please take care of each other. If one of your friends or housemates is unwell, check in on them.

 

Providing a wider student experience

It’s never been more important to have some fun, relax and enjoy a bit of ‘normality’ in our lives. And so:

  • your Students’ Union will be putting on a variety of activities to help you meet like-minded people, make friends, and have some fun and relax.
  • student-run societies will continue to have fantastic events and activities
  • your confidential advice service will be open to provide support and guidance if you ever have any questions
  • campus gyms will be open, and Team ARU welcomes you back to enjoy social and competitive sports

 

Accommodation

We still have accommodation available, to book yours visit aru.ac.uk/accommodation.

 

Insurance

We do not recommend any specific insurance, but do offer Navinsure, a specialised education insurance policy through Endsleigh.

If you wish to proceed and purchase this policy, you should indicate this in the relevant section of your acceptance form (in your letter of offer). Once you have paid your fee, you will be provided with full policy documentation to read and store safely for future reference.

If you have already accepted your offer and indicated that you would like to opt in to the insurance, you will receive an email from us directly. You will be asked if you want to proceed with the purchase based on the enhanced policy information.

When is payment due?

To avoid additional bank transaction fees, we recommend that you pay the Navinsure fee along with your course fee deposit. Even if you pay after the 1st August, the policy start date will remain fixed.

When will the policy start?

The policy coverage will commence on specific dates linked to your chosen intake. The start date of the policy is earlier than the intake date.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

I already have an offer, how can I keep informed on next steps?

Our student recruitment and admissions team will make sure you keep informed on the next steps for you to do. Also please do not hesitate to contact us at admissions@arucollege.com if you any questions regarding your offer.

What will be the deadline for payment to secure my place? Can I accept the offer now and pay later?

There is no deadline of payment set up to secure your place and you also can accept the offer first and pay later but we encourage all students to make a deposit sooner rather than later in order for us to issue Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS), which will allow yourself enough time to apply for a visa.

Will I be learning online or on campus?

We offer face-to-face campus teaching (with the exception of Distance Learning courses), supported by our established online learning systems, which provide additional support for individual study and engagement. In the event that there are restrictions that are put into place due to the pandemic by the Government, we will endeavour to retain face-to-face teaching as much as possible but will respond accordingly to the restrictions placed on the University.

What happens if I become ill in the UK?

If you feel ill or become worried about your health, the National Health Service (NHS) is available to both domestic and international students. International students will always be able to access treatment that clinicians consider immediately necessary or urgent, at no upfront cost.

When do classes start?

Teaching begins on 19 September 2022, with welcome week starting 12 September. Students, once they accept their offer of a place, will receive further details about registration and welcome week.
