What is Distance Learning?

Arden's Distance Learning programme means you'll study completely online, meaning you can continue to work while you learn and you can access everything from your course materials to tutorials and tutor support online from wherever you are.

The only difference between a qualification from Arden and a more traditional on-site university is the flexible way we deliver the course. We offer:

  • An innovative virtual classroom, ilearn, available 24/7.
  • Accessible learning from any device - you can learn from your computer, laptop, tablet or phone.
  • The flexibility to study from any place in the world, at a time to suit you, as long as you can access the internet.

So whether you're a busy professional looking for the next step in your career or a parent or carer wanting to return to education, but needing to maintain your responsibilities, Distance Learning could be perfect for you.
