Compare Arden's study modes

As specialists in Distance Learning, we have been delivering exceptional online learning for over 30 years. This means we have been perfectly placed to continue to deliver a consistent learning  experience even throughout this year, meaning our students’ learning has not been disrupted or put on hold.

We offer two routes to study:

  • Our Distance Learning option allows you to study when you want and at the pace that suits you, using our online portal called ilearn. This mode of learning isn’t new for us and our portfolio of programmes was designed to be delivered online, which means the current situation has no impact on that delivery - except you might have even more time to dedicate to your studies! 
  • Our Blended Learning option allows you to combine innovative online learning with time-tabled classes. Typically, these classes take place in one of our study centres; however, due to the current situation, the face-to-face teaching element of all Blended Learning courses will be delivered entirely online until further notice. This means you can access your online learning material as usual, as well as continuing to benefit from real-time teaching and interaction with other students, delivered safely via a virtual classroom. 

While life in general may be changing over the coming weeks, our commitment to delivering great teaching and supporting our students remains unchanged. We will continue to monitor the situation, and will only return to face-to-face teaching when it is safe and sensible to do so.  

Check out our comparison table below to see whether Blended Learning or Distance Learning with Arden is the right choice for you.

When will teaching resume in the study centres?  

Currently we cannot confirm an exact date as the situation is continuing to evolve daily. We are committed to delivering great teaching in an environment that is safe for our students and staff, so only when it is safe and in line with Government guidance will face-to-face teaching resume.”

We will continue to keep existing and prospective students updated, and when we are able to resume teaching in the study centres, you will be provided with plenty of notice.  


How will I complete my face-to-face exams? 

During the current pandemic restrictions all face-to-face exams have been replaced with time-constrained online assessments. This means you will still complete an assessment for your module, but online. The assessments will usually be essay-based with a set word count and you will have a 24-hour window to complete it. Note that the task does not take 24 hours to complete; it needs approximately 3 to 4 hours concentrated work which you are free to manage within the allocated 24 hour timeslot.
