In the beginning, Athabasca University was the first in Canada to open a classroom without limits. The first to let adult learners earn a degree anytime, everywhere. AU was the first to offer distance relationships between professor and student. As innovators, we created new techniques and technologies for learning and became the first and best in online distance education. And since then, a lot of competitors have cropped up. How are we continuing to raise the bar even higher? What does the future look like with Athabasca University? We’re building on our established reputation with renewed energy and innovation. Leading the world with new ways of connecting learners with opportunities. AU is open. A portal to where you want to go, no matter where you are in life. Whether it’s developing online tools for adult learners Interactive experiences through social media and meetups Or online sessions with world class professors, AU bridges the gap between where students are now and where they want to be.
