Discover the real impact of studying Higher Education flexibly.

How to get your ideal job through distance learning

According to research conducted by Happiness Works only 13% of employees worldwide are happy at work. If you are one of the less happy 87%, the key to a finding a more rewarding job might be improving your skills with a relevant qualification.

Some of us might feel that education isn’t accessible– we might have a family, work commitments or simply a busy life. Distance learning takes these into account and provides an alternative for all the busy bees out there!

1. Study at your own pace

With distance learning there is no timetable. You can study at your own pace, gaining a higher education qualification without being tied by academic term dates and while maximising your employment opportunities.

2. Combine studies with other commitments

90% of our students are in employment, gaining a new qualification while maintaining their work, family life and leisure time. You can study from home, work or your favourite coffee shop. Now, that’s what we call a truly flexibly study pattern.

3. Less peer pressure

Many people confess feeling embarrassed in front of their colleagues if they get something wrong or take longer to understand certain concepts, and so going back into a classroom can be a daunting prospect. This can easily be addressed by online distance learning – taking study out of the classroom into our online learning platform.

4. Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

If you are employed and seeking a promotion or a pay rise, further study could show your employer how committed and driven you are. If, on the other hand, you are job hunting, furthering your studies by distance learning shows potential employers that you are proactive and keen to better yourself.

5. Effective learning

Online learning with Arden University is engaging and employment related meaning you can instantly put what you learn into practice, growing your confidence and showing your employer how your skills are improving. It’s always important to stand out in a competitive job market. Studying for a new qualification could make a great difference to your skill set, knowledge and confidence with minimal impact on your lifestyle.
