Anglia Ruskin University College (Cambridge) is a public university and home to more than 10,355 students, including over 2,600 international students. Established in 1992, the institution’s historical story begins in 1858 when John Ruskin, an art critic, patron, and admirable philanthropist opened the Cambridge Art School. Now a renowned centre of learning with international standards, the campus is a hub of vibrant culture and social scene that welcomes students from all walks of life.
