Arden University


At Arden University we believe that everyone, everywhere should be able to study. For over 25 years, we’ve supported over 50,000 students and have delivered quality Higher Education that fits around our students’ lives.

Get ahead in your career with flexible learning
We offer a range of career-focused Masters and MBAs that can be studied flexibly by online distance learning. Our distance learning masters programmes allow you to study where and when you choose.  

Many Postgraduate students choose to study at Arden as it’s an affordable way to progress their career, and fits around their work and family life.

All our courses come with a strong focus on employability - many of which are accredited by professional bodies which means you can be sure your qualification is meeting industry standards and will be valued by employers globally.

We are proud to offer non-standard entry requirements which means your work experience and previous qualifications are taken into account. With Arden, you don’t have to put your career on hold to get your postgraduate qualification.

Finding time to study
With 24/7, multi-device, multi-media learning materials, and a leading edge ‘virtual classroom’ study portal, you can study from any place in the world at any time, as long as you can access the internet.

The amount of time you’ll spend studying each week may vary, but we usually recommend 15-20 hours a week of study time.

At Arden, we are also committed to the idea that cost shouldn’t be a barrier to your personal development. As well as our courses being reasonably priced, you can stay in control of your finances and focus on your learning with our flexible pay-as-you-go option. You may even be eligible for a student loan to cover the cost of your studies, or you have the option of exploring employee sponsorship.

We pride ourselves on our excellent support network – as well as your academic tutor, you’ll be assigned a dedicated Student Support Coordinator who will be there to help you every step of the way, from enrolment to graduation.

Our story 
RDI started life as a family-owned business in 1990, giving learners worldwide an opportunity to further their education through flexible distance learning.

In April 2014 we were awarded Taught Degree-Awarding Powers. This meant that alongside providing higher education qualifications through our University Partners, we could also award our own degrees. In August 2015 we officially became Arden University – the only specialist distance (online) learning university to launch in the UK in the last 50 years.

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