Online & Distance Education Courses

We offer university online and distance education courses in a wide range of subjects. Our courses are designed for study online and at a distance, so you can continue your education without sacrificing personal, family, career, or community commitments. Our course fees include all textbooks and materials, so you will know what you're paying at the start.


Want to earn a degree, diploma or certificate? We have 55 undergraduate and graduate programs to choose from, in a range of arts, science, and professional disciplines. See the list.

Classroom Study

Most AU courses are delivered at a distance as individualized study, but if you prefer the structure of learning in a classroom or online with other students, we also offer grouped study courses across Alberta and the Northwest Territories.
