Our Story

At Arden University we believe that everyone, everywhere has a right to Higher Education.

Since we began our journey in 1990 as the chosen partner for traditional Universities to deliver their online programmes we have constantly evolved and in 2014 we earned taught degree-awarding powers which meant that we could, very proudly, award our own degrees.

In August 2015 we became Arden University – one of the few specialist, distance learning universities to launch in the last 50 years.
We’re now a leading provider of flexible, online and blended learning.

We're now supporting more than 19,000 students globally online and at our six study centres in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Berlin.

We offer a wide range of Higher Education courses endorsed by professional bodies such as the Chartered Institute of Marketing, Chartered Management Institute and the Association of Project Managers, as well as offering a Qualifying Law Degree – one of only five institutions in the UK to provide this course via Online Distance Learning!

We now also offer Blended Learning courses which enable students to have the best of both worlds: classroom study at one of our Arden UK study centres, alongside Distance Learning study.

Although many things have changed, our core values at Arden remain the same: to provide wide access to education and change people’s world through innovative, modern learning.
