No Detriment Policy

Our No Detriment policy was launched on 30th April 2020 and allows ARU to apply special measures to normal assessment processes in order to minimise the negative impact of circumstances on module outcomes (e.g.: your final mark for each module).

Our offices at the Chelmsford Campus (1st floor, Eastwood House) and the Cambridge Campus (1st Floor, Abbeygate House) are currently closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and will remain so until further notice. Howeveer, Academic Registry staff are still available through email.

The Academic Registry supports a wide range of academic activities, including a secretariat function to the Senate committee structure, and provide access to a variety of publications and information which are designed to help the staff and students of Anglia Ruskin University and its UK and international Associate Colleges.
