Asian Correspondent » Anglia Ruskin University Asian Correspondent Wed, 20 May 2015 11:20:38 +0000 en-US hourly 1 World first for keyhole surgery expert Wed, 16 Jan 2013 11:21:44 +0000 A Senior Lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University has successfully carried out a new type of life-saving laparoscopic (keyhole) vascular surgery.
The successful operation, believed to be the first of its kind in the world, was to seal a leaking aneurysm in an 83-year-old man from Truro in Cornwall, and took place in a new £1.5m hybrid operating theatre at Colchester General Hospital.
Adam Howard, Honorary Senior Lecturer in Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery at Anglia Ruskin, carried out the seven-hour procedure with his fellow Colchester General Hospital consultant vascular surgeon Mr Christopher Backhouse and two consultants from Truro.
Mr Howard said:

About three years ago, the patient had surgery for an abdominal aortic aneurysm in Truro but the stent slipped, which is not particularly unusual. This means that blood gets into the aneurysm and there is a significant chance of a rupture within 12 months.
“Three attempts were made at other hospitals to seal the aneurysm, including restenting and an operation involving a special glue costing £6,000, but none of them worked.

Mr Howard believes it was the first operation anywhere in the world to repair this particular type of leak, which is known as a type 1a endoleak. Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms cause about 6,000 deaths a year in England and Wales.
Mr Howard said that because it was a laparoscopic (keyhole) operation, only small cuts – up to 1cm in length – were required, which means the recovery process is quicker than with traditional open surgery, is less painful and has less risk of infection.
He devised the operation at The ICENI Centre at Colchester General Hospital, which is a state-of-the-art training and research and development centre for laparoscopic surgery and a joint venture between Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust and Anglia Ruskin University.
Mr Howard lectures on the Masters course in Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery, which is taught at the Postgraduate Medical Institute on Anglia Ruskin’s Chelmsford campus.

Our student success stories: Dwarka Nayak, India Tue, 08 Jan 2013 09:33:19 +0000 PhD Research scholar

“Previously I have worked with Tribal people in deep forest villages as part of a UK government funded project supporting sustainable livelihood and I realized that I should have deep understanding of real life oriented research skills to analyze the efficiency of such projects and to understand how best to support the vulnerable.

I choose to join the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at Anglia Ruskin University because of its innovative vision and mission and expertise in labour history, migration, and social justice. I moved to Cambridge in September 2010 and since have been learning much about the working lives of the ‘precariat’ in the UK and also about the latest research methods.

Anglia Ruskin University has exceeded my expectations in the opportunities it offers to improve students’ knowledge and research skills. Academic staff are understanding of students’ particular needs. They are friendly and happy to help. The university has rich collection of academic of both electronic and paper resources.

Clinton invites Anglia Ruskin expert to address conference of former world leaders Wed, 19 Dec 2012 20:54:35 +0000 Dr Aled Jones, Director of the Global Sustainability Institute at Anglia Ruskin University, has been invited to be a William J. Clinton Distinguished Lecturer by the Clinton School of Public Service.
Dr Jones’ lecture on Friday, 14 December will provide reflection and advice to the influential Club de Madrid, whose members include former United States President Bill Clinton. The Clinton School was established by the University of Arkansas, in co-operation with President Clinton.
Focusing on financing climate change solutions in developing countries, Dr Jones will address issues important to the Club de Madrid – a group of more than 90 democratic former Heads of State and Government from across the world – at their annual conference in Little Rock, Arkansas.
His speech, in President Clinton’s home town, will set out the objectives for a new taskforce aimed at supporting the role of private sector finance, particularly sovereign wealth and pension funds, in generating low carbon, sustainable growth in developing countries.
The taskforce – to serve as an action group to mobilise political will across the world – will form part of the Little Rock Accord, which is expected to be signed during the Club de Madrid conference.
Pension funds are considered a prime source of potential investment because their long-term horizons are ideal for investing early in the companies and projects that will produce profitable solutions. This finance can be used to address shortages of key resources needed for development including energy, water, food, clean air and medical services.

Dr Jones said:

We will be talking about how to get more urgency into climate change solution investments across the world and how to engage both private and public sector in this. The plan is for the Club de Madrid to sign a declaration in Little Rock and make this one of their priorities over the next couple of years.
“The taskforce will work to build an acceptance that early and ambitious action to create these innovative financing tools will be cost effective, create jobs, drive economic growth, and provide good returns on investments.
“President Clinton, who is hosting the conference, is a vocal supporter of the need for new financing solutions, and his Clinton Climate Initiative has already been working on many of these issues, particularly in India.

In addition to President Clinton, numerous other Club de Madrid members are heavily involved in climate change and sustainable development issues, including Gro Harlem Brundtland (Prime Minister of Norway, 1986-1989 and 1990-1996) who is a UN Special Envoy on Climate Change, a Member of the UN Secretary General’s High-level Panel on Global Sustainability and Chair of the World Commission on Environment and Development.
Dr Jones previously ran the P8 Group of pension funds (growing into the P80 Group) through his work with the Prince of Wales Corporate Leaders Group on Climate Change and the University of Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership.
As well as heading up Anglia Ruskin’s Global Sustainability Institute, Dr Jones also chairs a working group on climate finance within the Capital Markets Climate Initiative on behalf of Greg Barker, the Minister for Climate Change in the UK Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC).
The Global Sustainability Institute’s core research is focused around personal motivations and systems change, set against the challenges of sustainability. The ‘system’ is the political, financial, industrial and social frameworks that contribute to challenges faced by society such as climate change, natural capital challenges, and social problems.

Our student success stories: Kazuno Kohara, Japan Fri, 14 Dec 2012 11:06:16 +0000 MA Children’s Book Illustration, MA Printmaking

Kazuno’s first book ‘The Haunted House’ appeared in the New York Times 10 Best Illustrated Children’s Books List in 2008.

“I studied at Anglia Ruskin University from 2005 to 2008, and received MA Children’s Book Illustration and MA Printmaking.

The Children’s Book Illustration course was structured proficiently, and despite the fact that I had never been to an art school previous to that, I was able to learn and develop the skill and gain knowledge effectively.

There was warm support and encouragement from the tutors and classmates. We had a crit every week, where we gathered and presented our week’s progress and ideas for the project, and criticised each others’ work; other work was always very inspiring.

Lectures were always interesting. Authors and illustrators were invited, as well as editors from publishers, which helped me to understand their relationship and how things work in the field of children’s bookd. A series of joint lectures with Homerton College, Cambridge University gave me an opportunity to look into children’s books from a different aspect.

At the end of the course, there was a graduation exhibition in London. Editors from many children’s book publishers were invited, and that was where I was contacted by the publisher now I work with. My first book, published in 2008, was based on one of the books I created for the master’s project.

I got interested in printmaking when I was studying the Children’s Book Illustration course, and took a Printmaking course from 2007 to 2008. Anglia Ruskin University has a printmaking studio which is professionally equipped. There were students who came from various artistic backgrounds, whose destinations were also diverse, and their advice helped me to look at my work objectively. Tutors and staff worked in the same studio out of teaching hours, and their works were always extremely inspiring.

What I learnt from the course had a significant influence on my work, both internally and externally.”

MA Creative Writing graduate launched book Tue, 11 Dec 2012 12:39:50 +0000 MA Creative Writing graduate Kaddy Benyon launched her first poetry collection, Milk Fever, at Heffers Bookshop, Cambridge. The 52 poems included in Milk Fever draw on themes such as myth, motherhood, loss and rebirth.
Published by Salt, the manuscript was awarded the 2011 Crashaw Prize, an annual international prize for debut collections of poetry in English.
Discussing her experience of writing poetry, Kaddy Benyon said: “I’m fascinated by paradoxes: by that space between fantasy and reality and what can take root, poem-shaped, and start growing there. Whether I’m playing with my children, swimming, writing or painting – I’m really thinking about that space, that synapse in thoughts and feelings that can only be expressed in a poem.”

Chris Hamilton-Emery, Director of Salt Publishing, commented, “Kaddy Benyon’s memorable and rewarding book Milk Fever offers lyrics of intense physicality and sensuality, where the world we inhabit and the world of our bodies collide and often merge in metaphors of powerful resonance and charm.”
Kaddy is Invited Poet at the Scott Polar Research Institute, Cambridge, where she is writing her second poetry collection, Call Her Alaska. Research for this contemporary reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Snow Queen will see Kaddy follow the heroine, Gerda, north through Denmark, Sweden and Norway, funded by an Arts Council Grant for the Arts.

GoGreen Movement – Being part of something bigger Mon, 10 Dec 2012 14:42:21 +0000 Francesca Rust talks about her experience as Research Assistant with the GoGreen Movement

The GoGreen Movement is a group of passionate students and academics aiming to promote change towards sustainability in organisations around the world.

I first spoke to Greg O’Shea during my second year studies about the possibility of taking an internship through the summer of August 2011. This idea soon formed into something much more attainable with a scheduled interview with the then Director of Research Rob Willis.
The interview was nerve wracking as whilst I had attended many job interviews, an interview for a research position was within my unknown. Not being sure what to expect, I went along with another student to discuss what areas I was interested in within my degree and examined what research options were available.
It was after this interview that I met with my new team; Dr. Beatriz Acevedo and Romas Malevicius. From that moment on I knew I was in for an exciting ride. Dr. Acevedo and I scoped out what my research assistant role was, how best to conduct the research and what the end product should look like. The next few months saw my research methods advance quickly to adapt to the fast approaching deadlines set by Dr. Acevedo, a method we adopted together as it was clear I worked best under pressure.
Being part of the Go Green team; Beatriz, Laura, Luis, Romas and Souvenir was such a fantastic experience. It enabled us to work as a team through a variety of events; from travelling down to Hastings to gather research on two of the participating companies, to spending every Friday morning at 8am in Costa to update how our research is going and challenge each other’s ideas. Being a part of this new project group was so enlightening for both my personal development and my professional knowledge on the topic.
After completing the majority of the research assistant role, my focus turned to my dissertation. The research opportunity I had been given through Anglia Ruskin enabled me to focus my dissertation topic very early on and therefore put me in good stead to spread the workload out for the year ahead. Not many students are able to really pull apart a topic like I did and not only did being part of the Go Green team help me focus my dissertation and have a large base of research to use, it provided a great support network of students and staff when times inevitably got tough. With such a diverse group, whatever support was needed there was always someone on hand to help.
The pilot drew to a close when the student team handed in our dissertations and bid farewell, but it wasn’t all over for me. Still working with Dr. Acevedo, I was given the opportunity to attend the British Academy of Management (BAM) Conference 2012 in Cardiff to support the proposal of a development paper. Participating in the conference was a priceless and unforgettable experience. I seized the opportunity to challenge Keynote speaker Prof. Jeffrey Pfeffer on the topic of integrated work experience within the education system. BAM also provided a platform to speak to Academics from across the globe on topics ranging from sustainability to performance management and get a real insight to what it is like to focus on research and the opportunities that can come from it.

Williams is one of the 10 students to receive the scholarship for 2012-13, and will use the £800 to help pay for physiotherapy and travelling to competitions. Anglia Ruskin is the reigning British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) men’s champions, and a further £200 will be available to any student who improves on their individual score in next year’s event.

In addition to Williams, scholarships have been awarded to fellow BSc (Hons) Sports Coaching (European Judo Union) student Adrian Markov; BSc (Hons) Sports Coaching and Physical Education students Michael Stewart, Natasha Collins, Tara Fitzjohn, Luc Bonnargent, Ronnie Plumb and Josh Plant; BSc (Hons) Sports Science student Glenn Miller; and Matt Kavannagh, a current British junior champion who studies BA (Hons) Law.

As well as the scholarships, all 10 students receive free physiological testing, strength and conditioning support, performance analysis, gym access and judo kits.

Four of these students – Stewart, Collins, Miller and Plant – will graduate next year and are considering a Masters programme led by Anglia Ruskin, in partnership with the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Kanoya, Japan. Masters students spend half of the academic year at the Japanese university and half at Anglia Ruskin in Cambridge.

Anglia Ruskin recently launched a specialist judo research group and hopes to forge collaborations with other universities across the world through its links with the International Association of Judo Researchers.

OUR STUDENT SUCCESS STORIES: Asha Joseph, Overseas Nursing Programme Thu, 22 Nov 2012 10:50:20 +0000 Asha Joseph from Kottayam in Kerala has recently completed the Overseas Nursing Programme atAngliaRuskinUniversity. She is now “living the dream” as a registered nurse in theUK. Here are her thoughts about the course, why she chose it, how it has helped her and what she now plans for the future.


I undertook the Overseas Nursing Programme (ONP) at Anglia Ruskin University because it offered me the chance improve on my practical skills as a nurse and provided me with the chance of fulfilling my dream of registering as a nurse in the UK.  The course has enabled me to gain an insight into the differences between working as a nurse inIndiaand the National Health Service (NHS), meaning I was able to gain exposure to more areas of nursing and gain a greater understanding nursing in theUK.  Initially I found the academic side of the course very different to how I studied back home in India, but thanks to the excellent support that I received my tutors at the university and my fellow colleagues I was able to quickly adapt and successfully complete the course.


“Once I had completed the ONP I found it very easy to get a job as a nurse, there are lots of opportunities across all areas of nursing throughout the UK, I was able to find work as a registered nurse within a couple of days of completing the ONP. I would recommend the ONP to any nurse thinking about coming over to study at Anglia Ruskin. The course has changed my life by enabling me to fulfil my dream of registering with the NMC and becoming a Nurse in the UK”


In the future I am now planning to undertake further continuing professional development training with Anglia Ruskin I really enjoy working as a nurse in the UK, my colleagues are all very friendly and I really love being a registered nurse.  The ward I work on has a very strong team ethic and strong sense of team spirit and they all feel like a part of my extended family”   I strongly believe that the Overseas Nursing Programme has helped me to develop both personally and professionally and allowed me to become a better nurse in the process.

Thanks to successfully completing the ONP I now have a career where I can see reel opportunities for progression
