Our approach
You love what you do. Now you’re ready to put in the hard work and commitment to reach the very top of your profession.

Our postgraduate degrees will give you the expertise to progress in your sector, whether you want to work in a more hands-on role or choose to pursue a career in administration, decision-making and management.

Learning in the real world
You want to make a difference to people’s lives – you know this takes practical experience and specialist training.

Lots of our Masters degrees offer placement and volunteer opportunities, so you can take what you learn at university and apply it to real-life situations in a range of community settings. And because we work in partnership with the Health Care Professions Council and over 400 schools in the surrounding area, you can be sure that your course is relevant to the current challenges faced by education and care providers today.

Who you’ll work with
You’re ready to take your career to the next level, and you need solid academic guidance to reach your full potential.

At ARU, you’ll be taught by professional practitioners with years of experience under their belt, and research active lecturers who are contributing to the latest theories in the field. This means whatever your area of interest, you’ll get the specialist support you need to write engaging, original and potentially ground breaking dissertations and research projects.

Research with real social impact
You want to be part of an ambitious and innovative postgraduate community.

Our research was named world-leading in 12 subject areas, including Allied Health Professions, Nursing, Social Work and Social Policy (Research Excellence Framework 2014). Staff in our faculty are involved in a number of research projects with local, national and international agencies – and are working to understand and address current issues in care and education both here in the UK and around the world.
