Why Arden University is different
Here at Arden University we believe everyone, everywhere should be able to study. Whether you are constrained by location, cost, life commitments or just by time, we are passionate about giving you access to higher education that fits with your hectic, modern life.
We offer access to degrees, masters and MBA programmes in both online distance learning and flexible on-campus study modes. Our students range from 18 to 80 years old and we support them on-campus (at our study centres in London, Birmingham and Manchester) and online. We are proud to offer non-standard entry which means your work experience and previous qualifications are taken into account.
All our courses come with a strong focus on employability - many of which are accredited by professional bodies.
RDI started life as a family-owned business in 1990, giving learners worldwide an opportunity to further their education through flexible distance learning.
As an increasing number of students trusted us with their education and future, we kept growing with them and in April 2014 we were awarded Taught Degree-Awarding Powers. This meant that alongside providing higher education qualifications through our University Partners, we could also award our own degrees. In August 2015 we officially became Arden University – the only specialist distance (online) learning university to launch in the UK in the last 50 years.
We offer a wide range of Higher Education courses endorsed by professional bodies such as the Charted Institute of Marketing, Chartered Management Institute, British Psychological Society and the Association of Project Managers, as well as a Qualifying Law Degree – one of only five institutions in the UK to provide this course via online distance learning!
Although many things have changed, our core values remain the same: to provide wide access to education and change people’s world through innovative, modern learning.
