About us

Writtle University College is a small and supportive institution, located in rural Essex, close to the city of Chelmsford. We specialise in Land based, Animal and Sport and Health undergraduate and postgradute programmes, offering industry focused, innovative courses, taught in smaller groups and delivered with a practical approach. 

In July, ARU and Writtle University College announced their intention to merge. This will bring many benefits to students and their learning experience by accessing a much larger university network and support system. Writtle courses will continue to be delivered by Writtle staff teams on the 'ARU Writtle' Campus, using specialist facilities and resources and as a smaller community. . As well as having access to all the facilities at Writtle, once the merger is complete, students will also gain access to all ARU's support services which include a wider support offering and the use of world-class facilities.
