Distance Education : Prospective Students - Program

Distance education is different from conventional classroom-based education in that it allows you as a student to complete courses and programs without attending scheduled group classes in a central location, such as a university campus. As an AU distance education student, you can work from anywhere, such as your home or workplace; work at your own pace on a schedule that suits your individual needs; register for a single course or enroll in an undergraduate or graduate degree, diploma or certificate program.

AU also offers a selection of courses using a grouped study onsite format at a number of Alberta locations. Click on this link for more information about our grouped study courses.
