ACU Writtle

Land-based education provider Writtle University College has merged with Anglia Ruskin University (ARU).

Established in 1893, Writtle is one of the oldest specialist institutions in the UK, providing courses in a range of subject areas, including horticulture. Under its new name, ARU Writtle, it will continue to provide its full range of degree courses.

To continue to offer its existing courses for 16-18-year-olds and adult learners, a specialist Further Education college called Writtle College has been established.

The Writtle campus, near Chelmsford in Essex, will receive a cash injection of £10m from ARU over the next five years for improvements and to develop its offering.

It’s a “significant milestone” for ARU, says vice chancellor Professor Roderick Watkins. “What makes this merger so significant, and sets us up for future success, is our shared values, and how we place our students at the heart of our institutions.”
