Is university Distance Learning right for me?

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 online study materials you need, including access to a team of expert tutors and plenty of support, to help you with your Distance Learning degree course, 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 that suits you, as long as you can access the internet.

You'll 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 you can email 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 too.
