Anglia Ruskin University is a university in England, with campuses in Cambridge and Chelmsford. Anglia Ruskin University has its origins in the Cambridge School of Art opened in 1858 by John Ruskin. In 1960 this became the Cambridgeshire College of Arts and Technology. In 1989 CCAT merged with the Essex Institute of Higher Education to form the Anglia Higher Education College. The merged college became a polytechnic in 1991, using the name Anglia Polytechnic, and was then awarded university status in 1992. Initially Anglia Polytechnic University, it retained the word 'polytechnic' in its title because "the term 'polytechnic' still had value to students and their potential employers, symbolising as it did the sort of education that they were known for - equipping students with effective practical skills for the world of work" although in 2000 there was some self-doubt about including the term 'polytechnic' - it was the last university in the country to have done so
