Postgraduate Online Learning Virtual Open Day - 13 October 2020

Don’t let the inconvenience of regular lectures or tutorials take away your chance of taking your education to the next level – opt for an Arden University Online Learning programme and you can study for a Postgraduate qualification wherever and whenever it suits you. Studying shouldn’t have to be an activity that forces you to put other aspects of your life on hold, but rather one that fits around them. If you have family or work commitments and still find yourself wanting to return to education, Arden's online Distance Learning allows you to do just that, without the need to take time out from your job or fund extra childcare.

Taking Place: Tuesday 13th October 2020, 17:00 - 17:45 BST

Attending one of our virtual open days is the best way to get to know Arden University! You’ll be hearing from Senior Educational Consultant Aida Ramaz, and Postgraduate Team Leaders Geraldine Hall and Rashmi Dravid, who will be speaking about and answering questions on the following topics related to Postgraduate Online Learning: 

  • Study mode overview
  • What courses are available? 
  • What do I need to know about applying? 
  • What are my fee options? 
  • What are the study expectations?
