I am very nearly at the end of my MBA now, and at times it has been hard and i have wanted to walk away . However with the flexibility and support of Arden this has allowed me to continue and grow in confidence that i can do this. I would highly recommend Arden University.
Arden University modules are heavily focused on linking business theory into work skills, through doing my MBA I have been able to used examples of how the taught aspect is put into practice within my organisation. Through completing my MBA i have increased my awareness of management issues institutions face on a regular basis.
As I am studying Distance learning this gives me the flexibility to fit in my studying around my family and work life. Having 2 small children at home and working full time, finding the time to study at times can be challenging, but because there is need to be logged on a specific time or attend any classroom work, means i can put in the hours when i can,.
Arden University provide the basic of what you need to complete your studies. With an online campus where you can interact with your tutor and peers while working through the module context. Through the online library you can access a wide range of textbooks and journals to assist with your independent reading.
N/A Studying online means i can interact with students from many areas of the world.
The support at Arden university is of a high standard. From the very start, my admissions adviser was on hand to help me through the applicant phase and support with my Student finance loan. Upon enrollment tutors are there to support you through the module and assisting in any concerns. The student support team are always there to offer their advice and listen to your worries or concerns.
I have got so much out of doing this course. It has been challenging, enjoyable, and is changing and shaping my career and practice as a manager and has done since my very first module.
Arden provides access to a huge range of careers resources through the online portal. There are monthly webinars that address a wide range of relevant employability issues and there is a dedicated member of the Student Support team with responsibility for careers. Throughout the course there is encouragement to apply your learning to your existing work context if you have one, or to case studies, with an emphasis on solving real-world problems.
I enjoy the flexible nature of the course, that I can fit it around my work and other commitments, because the course materials and online portal is available 24/7. Adobe connect sessions allow me to "meet" my tutor and my peers in real time from across the globe and interact.
As a distance learner, the whole experience hinges around the online portal, which works really well. The libraries, study skills area and careers section provide additional support in areas that would be traditionally offices on campus.
As a distance learner this is not applicable
The student support team are fantastic, and also we have access to a 24/7 crisis support line called Student Line. The tutors are friendly and supportive and challenge me to do my best work and to stretch myself. I am getting the best grades and feedback of any course I have ever undertaken, and this is my 4th higher education qualification at my 4th institution, Arden truly cares about its students.
I am on my foundation level i thing that i would need to be on my coues for a littie while longer befor i can give my opinion. on my coues when i would like see my self what my opinion would be in a years time.
i have not finished my course yet because this my first year.

I think my university facilities are good for me.
I live in london
I feel that my suppot is ok but my tutor for my foundation has been excellent.
I AM REALLY ENJOYING ARDEN UNIVERSITY EALING CAMPUS SO I WILL RECOMMEND ARDEN UNIVERSITY TO ANY ONE WHO WANTS NICE AND PEACEFUL ENVIRONMENT TO STUDY TO COME HERE.
I HAVE STUDIED IN DIFFERENT KINDS OF UNIVERSITIES BUT I CAN BOLDLY SAY ARDEN UNIVERSITY IS ONE OF A KIND. THE WAY THEY SUPPORT STUDENTS IS THE BEST OF ALL. THEY ARE REALLY GIVING ME MORE THAN WHAT I WAS EXPECTED.
WHAT I LIKE MOST IS HOW MY LECTURER HANDLE THE LESSON. IT SHOWS THAT HE IS REALLY A PROFESSIONAL LECTURER.
IT IS SUPERB
ALL TOGETHER IS SUPER
So far i am enjoying everything about the university. Future student should settle down on time for lecture and they must tell their tutor whenever they are having problem academically. Student support are there to give them moral support and to counsel them when they are struggling with anything about their academic.
I have a good tutor and is method of teaching is great.
City life is good and i am used to it
The support from the school is excellent, from the tutor to the student support team , the facilities provided, everything is great.
They have been extremely supportive of me and my efforts to complete this course. I have many challenges which I shared with the university and they made every effort to afford me the opportunity to continue my studies. AWESOME STAFF.
The university offers Career seminars and guidance for placement during the duration of the course. The tutors and other staff , including the student support department all give the necessary guidance and information to assist with the decision making process in regards to career choice and direction.
The eaase of accessibility to the course amterial, the resource centre and the access to the tutors.
The facilities athat I use are found to be quite good.
I'm an online student
They offer excellent support to their students. I would gladly recommend them to other potential students.
Being an online student can be very daunting. There is very often a wait to receive feedback or assistance but I am slowly getting used to this inevitable aspect of online learning.
The university offers a careers portal and a study skills portal. These both help with learning new skills, job searching, cv writing etc. There are also helpful contacts available.
There are a lot of brilliant resources available through the iLearn portal and also, the tutors are very approachable and will help in any way they are able. Studying online, the waiting time for a response can be very frustrating and can waste a lot of time which could be better spent actually completing assignments.
I am an online student however the online facilities are very helpful. Particularly the online library and the careers portal.

Student support are always available throughout the week to assist in personal matters although it would be more beneficial for them to offer a 24/7 service, especially for online learners. Tutor feedback is brief but I feel they are trying to empower independent learning so they often prompt students rather than give them the answers.
Good on average, sometimes it is not clear what exactly is expected and how to do it, tutor gives feedback on time most of the times but not always, sometimes answers are given in an unnecessary complicated way
Not always clear what is expected
Not available as distance learning
Tutors feedback OK, counselling good
Being able to study from home and on-campus is perfect. Arden's 'Blended Learning' feels experimental at the moment. I hope I can be one to prove it works.
Constant emails and services through their website.
I like that there are multiple modes: in-class lectures from tutor, video and literature online, all with references to sources and further reading.
Everything required is available.
Manchester has degraded since the Tories introduced Universal Credit and removed people off benefits. Many homeless people creating gangs, atop of every other criminal persona already active on these streets. Besides that, it's ok. Everything you need.
Amazing support though I never request for it. I prefer to first know that I can manage my own before I ask for help ..
Over it’s been stressful but good and I always feel supported and encouraged no matter what is going on outside of university. The university lessons to us as students and try to cater to all the students needs and requirements
They run workshops online and offer access to skills training within our learning which helps us with transferable skills
What I like best is the structure of classes and the tutors that teachers us What I like lease is assignment
Very good as it’s spacious, clean and they provide spaces to just go and relax and study or do assignments
Where our university is suituated I busy and offers a lot of food and shopping facilities
Our tutors are the best and they support you all the way threw your students and your are about to get help when ever you need even through email. Student is always had hand weather through phone or emails and they are always on hand to help you
