Why Arden University is different
Here at Arden University, we believe everyone, everywhere should be able to study. Whether you are constrained by location, cost, life commitments or just by time, we are passionate about giving you access to higher education that fits with your hectic, modern life.
We offer access to degrees, masters and MBA programmes in both online distance learning and flexible on-campus study modes. Our students range from 18 to 80 years old and we support them on-campus (at our UK Study Centres) and online. We are proud to offer non-standard entry which means your work experience and previous qualifications are taken into account.
All our courses come with a strong focus on employability - many of which are accredited by professional bodies.
Our flexible and supportive courses are often the start of a journey that sees our students break free of limitations, work hard and become the best they can be.
Why Study with Arden?
You don’t need to press pause in your life to earn a qualification.
Flexibility is our middle name. Our unique learning experience means all your study materials are online, so you can learn on your laptop, smartphone or tablet - at home, at work or even on the move.
Family or caring commitments? Don’t worry. Arden University is designed around you. You study when and where you like using our online learning platform, ilearn and add weekly seminars if you’re studying full time at one of our study centres.
Working? That’s not a problem. 90% of our students work and earn alongside their studies. It’s an excellent option for busy professionals who need a flexible study pattern.
Busy life? Relax. We have 4 intakes a year and our materials are available 24/7, giving you plenty of time and options to choose from.
And as online learning may seem daunting, a dedicated induction before you start your course makes sure you are prepared to succeed.
Just because we are an online university doesn’t mean you are on your own. You’ll have plenty of one-to one contact and support throughout your studies. Academic support comes from your expert tutor through regular sessions and tutorials, 1-2-1 feedback emails, Skype and phone calls.
For day to day administrative support, a named Student Support coordinator will be your main contact from enrolment through graduation – they will also give you a nudge to help keep you on track!
And you’ll be able to get together with other students online, through seminars and forums
All our students want to succeed in their careers. Our courses are designed with a strong focus on employability so that your learning will directly help you in the workplace whether you are just starting out, want to progress or change jobs.
To support your workplace and career development needs, our fantastic online careers portal will help you search for jobs, develop your CV and sharpen your interview techniques. These are just a few of the really useful tools thousands of Arden students have access to.
