What is Blended Learning?

Here at Arden University, we are dedicated to providing access to flexible, affordable learning for ambitious students around the world. On this page we'll explain the blended learning mode of study in more detail, so you can decide if it's the right choice for you.

How blended learning works

Blended learning is the combination of flexible online learning, with time-tabled classes. The real-time teaching timetable gives an element of structure to your day, and still gives you the freedom to access your learning portal for further study materials, ilearn, on any device, at any time, from anywhere. 

Under normal circumstances, our time-tabled classes take place in one of our UK study centres with your tutor and fellow students. However, due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, time-tabled classes have moved online via our virtual classroom. These classes take place in real time according to a set schedule, therefore attendance is mandatory. 

Unfortunately, we cannot give an exact date when our study centres will reopen, but we'll be updating blended learning students as soon as we have more information, so you can prepare to continue coming to the study centres for your classes.

What our students say about blended learning

Cemene Wellington

I chose to study with Arden University because the staff members were really supportive and nice. The course also fitted around my job. With Arden, I’ve finally learned to cope and understand my learning pattern, and my dyslexia. I’m on a Blended Learning degree, which involves a couple of days a week in the classroom with other students and tutors at Arden’s University centre in Ealing, West London plus fully supported online study.
