Athabasca University (AU), Canada’s Online University, is one of the world’s foremost and fastest-growing online and open education institutions, serving more than 43,000 learners across 87 countries. AU is the fifth largest university in Canada and one of four Comprehensive Academic and Research Universities in Alberta. AU offers online bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs alongside online courses for personal and professional development.
To remove barriers, AU offers an open enrolment model so that anyone 16 years or older can register for most first-year undergraduate courses, regardless of previous education. AU also offers continuous enrolment—most courses start the first of every month. Students can study from anywhere, with 12 per cent of students living in rural, remote, or isolated areas. Learners receive access to e-texts and academic supports such as tutoring, academic advisors, and counselling. Although learners often study independently, they are not left on their own.
