What sets us apart
Study your UK degree, from wherever you are
Distance and blended learning education pathways are becoming increasingly common thanks to the accessibility online delivery provides students. Here at Arden, we have 25 years of experience crafting our expertise at developing engaging and high-quality programmes, alongside our innovative online learning platform. We are proud to have supported 50,000 students of all ages and professional backgrounds through our online programmes, and continue to be dedicated to maximising our students’ success by preparing them for rewarding careers in their chosen profession.
Arden University offers over 50 undergraduate, postgraduate, and diploma programmes online. Many of our programmes are accredited by professional bodies such as the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), British Psychological Society (BPS), and the Association of Project Managers (APM). We are also one of only five educational institutions in the UK to offer LLB (Hons) degrees with Qualifying Status via distance learning.
Focus on employability
Our online programmes are designed with your career in mind. Our tutors are invested in your success both in and outside of our courses, and our programmes include opportunities to apply practical skills in individual modules and complete an independent research project. Upon completing one of our programmes, you will be able to demonstrate a clear understanding of your area of study and possess the skills needed to progress on your career path.
Many of our online students have already started their careers, are looking to move to more senior roles, and some are ready to explore an entirely new field. If you are interested in studying one of our programmes but don’t meet the standard academic requirements, you might be eligible to apply through our non-standard entry route, which takes a more holistic view of your qualifications and professional experience during your application review process.
At Arden, we believe that cost shouldn’t prevent you from earning a valuable education. Our degree programmes cost less than the average UK qualification, but we maintain a competitive academic standard of higher education.
We offer flexible funding options for our programmes to ensure students can focus on their studies, rather than stress over finances. Your course fees are determined based on your place of residence, and type of programme you study.
You have the option to either pay the full cost of your course upfront, which typically includes a 10% reduction of the total price, or pay in manageable instalments. Our instalment plan allows you to pay when you reach the next phase of your course, rather than paying monthly fees.
