"One of the great things about being at university in Chelmsford is that you’re close to so many fab shops. Not only does the city centre have a good range of shops but you’re also really close to Braintree Village which is a big discount outlet, housing brands like adidas, Nike, Calvin Klein, Hollister, Jack Wills, Levis, Cadbury and good old M&S to name but a few. I love going Christmas shopping there, as it has over 75 outlets, with most shops offering 50-60% off- so it’s a great place to get your Christmas presents and the discounts make your student loan go further. Even better, is that lots of the brands give additional NHS discounts, you just need to show your NHS ID from placement. So as far as I’m concerned it’s a win, win! The other reason I like going there, is that it feels really Christmassy with all the lights and all the smells from the outside food vans, bars and restaurants. So even if you don’t fancy doing any shopping, it’s just a nice place to go for a wander, get something to eat and to soak up some Christmassy atmosphere." - Jackie, BSc (Hons) Operating Department Practice We love hearing your favourite things about the cities our campuses are based in, and we know that our January starters will be excited to read them, too- why not share yours in the comment section? #AngliaRuskin #Chelmsford #ChristmasShopping #Essex #ChelmsfordTown #StudentDiscount #ARUProud #GoingToARU #ChristmasIsComing #AngliaRuskinUniversity #OperatingPractiseStudent
