About Arden University

At Arden University our vision is to make education more accessible, engaging and beneficial to people everywhere. 2018 will be an exciting year for the University as we continue with our transformation and development programme, driving an industry-leading learner experience and further developing our innovative ‘compressed-blended’ full time degrees across 5 campus locations. 

We are a values driven organisation, and in line with our values of supportiveness, integrity, innovation and ownership, we want to make sure that each of our study centres is delivering an outstanding student experience that is completely aligned to our brand promise, whilst providing a tailored and personalised experience reflective of the local needs and culture of the student and staff profile. We pride ourselves on the relationships we build with our students and the importance our staff across the organisation place on supporting students to realise their potential. We recognise that the pressures of people’s hectic, modern lives often means our students are constrained - by location, cost, family/caring commitments or simply time. By making our degrees, masters and MBA programmes available through both online distance learning and flexible on-campus ‘blended’ study, we have been able to support students ranging from 18 to 80 years old to achieve their ambitions and benefit from Higher Education.
