What is a Degree Top-up from Arden?

A Degree Top-up course is an affordable, flexible and fast-track way to your final year of Undergraduate study that can open doors to potential new career opportunities in your chosen field or even further study towards a Masters level qualification.

You could achieve a full Honours Degree in just one year by enrolling on one of Arden University’s Top-up Degrees if you’ve already completed a BTEC, HND or a foundation degree.

Studying for a Top-up Degree course also shows your employer that you’re a lifelong learner with the dedication, initiative, and structural skills required to achieve a recognised qualification.

For me, Arden University (former RDI) was a smart choice because the distance learning it offers is the most flexible option available and works well with my current schedule. Also, the price structure is reasonable and affordable as it helps to know that I won’t end up with a huge loan outstanding at the end of the course
