The current holding fee for Blended Learning Undergraduate courses in the UK is between £1,200 and £1,400. The holding fee is 100% refundable up until 30 days after the start of the course.

At the start of each year of study you will be asked to confirm how you intend to fund your studies and will be given the option again to enter an agreed payment plan or pay for your course fees in full.

Pay in full

You can either pay for your Arden University course in full, all in one go if you have the available funds, or alternatively, you can pay for each level (year) in full. If you pay for your course in full you will not need to sign up for a fixed payment plan for each level.
