Athabasca University

An innovative learning environment

Athabasca University is passionate about removing the barriers to post-secondary education and about enabling you to earn a high quality university credential where you live and work.

Open to learners worldwide, AU is ideal for people who enjoy independence and welcome diversity of opinion by interacting with peers and professors from across Canada and beyond. Technology makes it possible to blend online learning, audio and video conferencing, chats and discussions with face-to-face and practical, hands-on opportunities to provide you with an educational experience that is challenging, engaging and highly personalized.

The majority of AU Faculty of Health Disciplines undergraduate and graduate students maintain work and family commitments while they successfully complete their studies. They often tell us how being able to fit learning into their lives makes it possible for them to achieve academic goals that otherwise might not be possible.

Most importantly, our students and alumni say they feel like their individual needs are met, that they’re part of a larger community and that they create relationships that they’ll keep for life.

We strive to create an environment that fits every Faculty of Health Disciplines student — and welcome you to join us.
