Think you can’t afford to do an undergraduate degree? Think again.

The costs associated with getting a degree can seem daunting, but at Arden we provide options to make sure finance isn’t a barrier to achieving your goals. Not only can you pay-as-you-go, pay in instalments and get discounted payment in full, you can also study without paying a penny up-front by taking out a tuition fee loan, if you are from the UK or EU and going to university in 2018/19.

You can explore the full eligibility criteria on the UK Government website.

Living cost loans

If you're a student from England who is enrolling on a blended learning course with Arden (based part time in a study centre) then you're also entitled to a living cost loan to help pay for living expenses. Our distance learning students are not eligible for a living cost loan.

If you're a student from Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland you can find information on living cost loans from your student finance body. Students from other EU countries are not eligible for living cost loans.
