What it's like studying with us at Arden University Berlin

Studying your degree course with Arden University Berlin gives you the opportunity to experience working and living in Germany to the full as you gain your bachelor’s, master’s, or MBA qualification.

We provide you with a flexible mix of face-to-face teaching on campus blended with online classes which you can work through on your own schedule. This is ideal for those students who are looking for a course which allows them to benefit from traditional ways of gaining a university degree, while still having the chance to work and make the most of their time spent living in Germany.

How does it work?

Your face-to-face hours are delivered over two days per week at our Berlin campus. You’ll then study the remainder of your hours through independent online learning, studying approximately 25 hours per week through our easy to navigate online learning platform, ilearn.

This approach means that you’ll have the flexibility to fill your week with other activities such as working or spending leisure time in Berlin. Of course, when studying off-campus you can always contact your course tutor for extra support via email, or call or email our student support team with any questions you may have during normal working hours.


Your induction when you arrive to start classes

When you arrive in Berlin and attend your on-site induction, you’ll be welcomed as a new student by our academic staff and student support team and introduced to your course and the resources we have available for you on campus.

Along with an extended online induction which will introduce you to ilearn, this face-to-face induction will allow you to meet your course tutor, other students, and to become familiar with the key support services available to you as a new Arden University Berlin student.

My course at Arden University Berlin had a lot of flexibility, which helped me concentrate on my employment and industry exposure. I was able to work in two different firms in Berlin at the same to time due to the flexible timing of the course.
