Entry requirements that value your experience

We are proud to offer non-standard entry requirements for many of our courses, which means both your relevant work experience and previous qualifications are taken into account.

Access to student funding and fees up to 1/3 less than other universities

With Arden you only pay for what matters – high quality courses and a fantastic learning experience. The entire course can be funded via a Student Loan, although graduating debt free is possible by earning while you learn.
