ARU Global Week 2019


What is Global Week?

Taking place from the 18 to 22 March, Global Week is a celebration of cultural diversity at Anglia Ruskin. As a university with students and staff from a myriad of countries, this week gives them the opportunity to learn about the broad range of different backgrounds that make up our global university. We hope to bring students and staff together through a combination of education, volunteering events, academic workshops, and of course plenty of fun.
