Arden University

Arden University believes that everyone should be able to study. Whether you are constrained by location, cost, life commitments or just by time, they are passionate about giving you access to higher education that fits with your hectic, modern life. Their flexible and supportive courses are often the start of a journey that sees students break free of limitations and become the best they can be.



  • RDI started life as a family-owned business in 1990, giving learners worldwide an opportunity to further their education through flexible distance learning.
  • In April 2014 we were awarded Taught Degree-Awarding Powers.
  • 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 degrees, Masters and MBA programmes in both online learning and flexible on-campus study modes.

Our students range from 18 to 80 years old and we support them on-campus (at our London Study Centre) 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.
