Arden University

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.

The learning experience
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. Your study fits around you and our support is there when you need it.

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.

If you’re a UK resident, you can study on-campus via blended learning at one of our study centres in EalingTower Hill, Holborn, Manchester or Birmingham.

See what one of our blended learning students, Razzel, has to say about her experience at Tower Hill.

Our flexible study modes mean that 90% of our students work alongside their studies. Studying for your Masters or MBA via blended learning means that you only need to commit to one three-hour evening session on campus every fortnight. You’ll have the regular structure and support of a traditional campus-based course with added flexibility to learn while you are in work. 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.

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.

At Arden, we are also committed to the idea that cost shouldn’t be a barrier to your personal development. That’s why our fees are up to 30% more affordable than the average UK university qualification. 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.
