Study in a world famous academic city
Cambridge is internationally renowned as a centre of learning. The historic city centre is surrounded by beautiful parks, commons, and courtyards, making it one of the most beautiful cities in the UK. The unique mixture of old and modern buildings, the rich diversity, and open spaces sets Cambridge apart from other UK cities.
ARU has been in Cambridge since 1858, when the Cambridge School of Art first opened its doors. Our friendly, bustling campus is a five minute walk from the historic city centre with its vibrant cultural and social scene.
