Entry Requirements

Find out what you need to start studying with us today

At Arden, we understand that everyone comes from a different background. That’s why we’re proud to offer flexible entry onto many of our courses. Take a look below to find out more about our university entry requirements and what you’ll need to start your life-changing journey with Arden University today.

What are the academic entry requirements for my course?

The best way to find out the specific requirements for your chosen course is to check the entry requirements section on the relevant course page.

For many courses here at Arden, we offer the possibility for non-standard entry, meaning we’ll take into account your previous work experience in addition to the academic qualifications you possess. 

English language requirements

All courses at Arden University are taught in English. If this isn’t your first language, you’ll need to provide evidence of your English language proficiency at the required level for your course.

Alternatively, you can complete an English language test with us directly. Our test uses the same grading system as the IELTS, and you’ll typically receive your results in just a couple of days. You can find out more by speaking to a member of our student recruitment team.

What supporting documents will I need?

To support your application, you’ll be asked to provide us with the following documents:

  • Your completed online application
  • Relevant academic transcripts from your previous studies
  • An internationally recognised passport picture
  • A scanned copy of your national ID or passport information page
  • A scanned copy of your latest degree, diploma, or certificate of enrolment with an approximate graduation date
  • Your Curriculum Vitae (CV) in English
  • Two reference letters (professional or academic)

We also encourage applications from individuals who don’t meet our academic requirements but can evidence relevant work experience. In this case, we would ask you to provide professional references or other evidence of your work experience to date.

Module exemptions on your course

If you’ve already achieved recognised academic credits from another institution, we may be able to consider these for APCL (Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning).
