Studying in Manchester with Arden
Our Manchester courses are held in the heart of Manchester’s city centre commercial district, within Linley House and Barlow House. Both study centres are fully equipped with everything you need to get the most out of your time studying with us.
By choosing an Arden blended learning degree in Manchester, you’ll be able to complement your online learning with engaging face-to-face lectures with your fellow classmates and lecturers. We also have a large IT suite and library where you can delve into your study materials, as well as breakout spaces if you need to relax and take a breather from your studies.
And if you ever have any questions or need advice, our friendly student support team is located just down the corridor from your lecture room and are always happy to help.
With the city centre just a few minutes walk away, Manchester really is your oyster. You’ll find plenty of independent shops, restaurants, and amenities in the area, and the city’s largest shopping centre, Manchester Arndale, is under a kilometer away. Alternatively, the city’s home to many endearing squares and gardens for those who appreciate spending time outdoors. If you’re looking to diversify your study spots and fancy an impressive place to get down to work, the Manchester Central Library is open for public use until 8 PM Monday-Thursday and 5 PM Friday-Saturday.
