What is Distance Learning?

In today’s busy world it's often difficult to find time in your day-to-day life to pursue a higher education programme full-time. Things are different with Arden University. We offer online Distance Learning courses that enable you to study for an internationally-recognised qualification without putting your life on hold.

You can choose from a wide range of online courses and we offer many different qualifications, allowing you to study for a Degree, Top-up Degree, Master's or MBA via 100% online learning - including our latest MBA, The Karren Brady MBA.

Distance Learning could be perfect for you if you are:

  • A busy professional looking for the next step in your career
  • A school leaver wanting to gain valuable work experience without sacrificing your education
  • A parent or carer wanting to return to education but needing to maintain your responsibilities

Over 50,000 people worldwide have studied and achieved their qualifications through online and Distance Learning with us.

How does Arden Distance Learning compare to traditional university study?

It's simple really. There are no lectures to attend on-site anywhere, no fixed timetable and your study portal is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! The qualification you gain at the end of your course is the same as any other UK university course.

We provide you with all the study materials you need online, a team of expert tutors and other support to help you gain your Degree, Master's or other qualification.

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.
  • Access to multi-media learning materials* via ilearn, developed by our Arden University subject specialists.
  • 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.

Studying online gives you everything you need, plus you still get support from us from the moment you apply, with our friendly Arden Admissions Team on hand to answer any questions you have about your chosen course.

Throughout your course, you'll also have a dedicated course tutor who can be emailed if you need help with your studies and we even have a community for our Arden students so you can get in touch with others on your course.
