Find your course
ARU was a great choice that allowed me to achieve my personal and professional ambitions. I felt supported, empowered, and accomplished.
I would recommend this course to any fellow nurses or other professionals in the medical field who train others. It’s an affordable course that captures the essence of what you need to know as an educator.
Dio is an Admiral Nurse working for Dementia UK. With his career responsibilities increasing he sought to expand his academic knowledge and skills.
A major part of my job is to train other professionals in Dementia through bespoke training sessions. I recognised that my clinical experience was a good starting point to address the practical aspects in the training, but I was lacking the vehicle to deliver high quality bespoke training. I needed to learn more about education, to equip myself with all the necessary academic knowledge and skills so that my training sessions would live up to the expectations of my learners. I searched online for relevant courses in medical and healthcare education and felt reassured that ARU was the right place for me.
"Overall, my experience with ARU was amazing. I felt supported, empowered and accomplished. I’ve achieved what I was hoping for when I signed up for the course and I’ve enjoyed every moment."

I can see the progress I have made from studying this course. I have developed and practised the skills I have learnt, and I’m delighted to say that my training has improved spectacularly - so has my learners’ engagement and feedback.
Designed with the workplace in mind.
I can fulfil the training needs of our learners and accommodate various learning styles. I have become more inclusive, creative and innovative in delivering training sessions, meaning my workplace is now able to deliver a great training experience to professionals who require upskilling.
Building confidence through encouraging support
My tutor has been consistently supportive, patient and extremely responsive to any queries I had to address, or any last-minute disasters, he’s saved the day!
The same applies to the rest of the staff I’ve contacted for support; they were all very responsive.
The online resources were very useful and enabled me to perform all my academic tasks to a high standard. If I ever encountered an issue, I knew I had someone an email away to make things right again.
Top tips for students
You need determination to start your course of choice and commitment to reach the end of your journey with success. You need people around who believe in you, support you and if relevant, an employer that will allow you to pursue your ambitions.
You’ll need to be kind to yourself and allow some down time to recuperate from the accumulated stress as you may juggle work and studies. If stuck, go out for a walk in the park for half an hour to “empty your head” and get some fresh air. Rest enough, hydrate and eat well. It all matters.
In my experience ARU has allowed me to achieve my personal and professional ambitions. It’s worth every penny of the tuition fees. I self-funded my course and I’ve had no regrets investing in my career.
I would recommend this course to any fellow nurses or other professionals in the medical field who train others. It’s an affordable course that captures the essence of what you need to know as an educator, and you get to apply for the fellowship with HEA to establish yourself in education.
Overall, my experience with ARU was amazing. I felt supported, empowered, and accomplished. I’ve achieved what I was hoping for when I signed up for the course and I’ve enjoyed every moment.
It has a great alumni community and as heard on my graduation day, “It’s our university for life”.
