At Arden University, we are dedicated to providing students from all backgrounds and experience levels access to a higher education. We've proudly supported more than 50,000 students in over 25 years of offering flexible courses, and we constantly strive to reach more students across the globe
We offer the unique opportunity for students to study their degree course either fully online on one of our Distance Learning courses, or on a flexible Blended Learning programme. Students can choose to study one of our Blended Learning courses at any of our four UK locations and at our Berlin, Germany study centre.
Additionally, we offer courses that are approved and accredited by globally-recognised professional bodies including The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), The British Psychological Society (BPS), The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), and The Chartered Management Institute (CMI). Our courses are also reviewed by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) to ensure that all of our course material meets the highest standards for education and student experience.
Our Blended Learning courses combine both the face-to-face interaction and structure of traditional in-person lessons, with the flexibility of online study. Students attend timetabled lessons at their selected study centre two days a week, for a total of eight hours. Students access their remaining course material online, with the freedom to study around other commitments and work schedules.
Though Arden University has several physical study centres, we offer more than 50 undergraduate, postgraduate, top-up, Foundation Year Entry, and certificate courses fully online via our virtual study portal ilearn. As the only specialist online learning university to launch in the UK in the last 50 years, we have been at the forefront of all the emerging trends and best practices in online learning. On our online courses, students have the opportunity to choose exactly when and where they study their learning materials, without being held to a predetermined timetable.
Whether students choose to earn their degree via Blended or Distance Learning, they have access to feedback and assistance from our Student Support Team and specialised academic staff. Online and Blended Learning students are in regular contact with Arden’s expert tutors and may collaborate with their peers either in person or on one of their provided online forums.
To offer even more value for all of our students, Arden courses are all designed with a strong focus on employability. This means that all of our modules and learning materials will be directly applicable to the workplace and align with each students’ unique career goals, whether that’s starting a new career, progressing in an organisation or changing jobs entirely.
In order to give our students further career support, Arden University offers a digital careers portal where students may access a wide range of helpful career resources such as a CV builder, interview simulator and job vacancy search engine. On the careers portal students can also find video sessions where industry leaders provide information about what employers search for in ideal job candidates.
