Why Study with Arden?

You don’t need to press pause on 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, smart phone 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 twice weekly seminars if you’re studying at one of our study centres.

Working? That’s not a problem. Many 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 intakes available throughout the 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 support throughout your studies. Academic support comes from your expert tutor through regular seminars and you can also drop them an email with any specific questions you may have.

For day-to-day administrative support, a member of our Student Recruitment Team 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 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 Arden students have access to.
