SINCE its in­cep­tion, Asia e Univer­sity (AeU) has stayed true to its mis­sion of pro­vid­ing life­long learn­ing to both Malaysians and non-Malaysians. En­rol­ment into life­long learn­ing pro­grammes, es­pe­cially post­grad­u­ate pro­grammes, can be done via the con­ven­tional en­try paths or via the open en­try paths. Learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties have never been eas­ier or more ef­fort­less.

AeU has con­stantly of­fered in­no­va­tive and rel­e­vant aca­demic pro­grammes in a wide range of ar­eas – man­age­ment, busi­ness, ed­u­ca­tion, ICT and multimedia, arts and hu­man­i­ties, and so­cial sci­ences. Fo­cus­ing mainly on the needs of work­ing adults, Schools at AeU have con­tin­u­ously im­parted up-to-date knowl­edge and in­for­ma­tion while em­pha­sis­ing ca­reer ad­vance­ment and life­long learn­ing.

AeU’s pro­grammes are unique be­cause they cater to both full-time and part-time modes of study through its fully on­line, blended learn­ing and work-based learn­ing ap­proaches.

Flex­i­ble learn­ing

AeU is known for its flex­i­bil­ity and dis­tance learn­ing cour­ses that ac­com­mo­date a stu­dent’s study and work sched­ule. AeU’s flex­i­ble learn­ing of­fers stu­dents the ease of study­ing on­line at home or at work. Stu­dents can choose be­tween full-time or part-time modes of study depend­ing on their life­styles. This en­cour­ages stu­dents to learn in a stress-free en­vi­ron­ment where they can study, work and at the same time, en­joy their life with fam­ily.

What makes AeU unique?

Since it was es­tab­lished in 2007, AeU has grown to be­come a leading provider of on­line and dis­tance learn­ing (ODL) in Malaysia. As an ODL in­sti­tu­tion, AeU’s fo­cus is to pro­vide ac­ces­si­ble and af­ford­able higher ed­u­ca­tion for all. The univer­sity gave rise to a new ap­proach to ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion that al­lows greater flex­i­bil­ity in learn­ing. The phi­los­o­phy is based on the be­lief that qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion should be made avail­able and ac­ces­si­ble to ev­ery­one.

AeU cur­rently of­fers more than 40 aca­demic pro­grammes at all lev­els, from diplo­mas to PhDs, through five of its schools – the School of Man­age­ment, School of Ed­u­ca­tion & Cog­ni­tive Sci­ences, School of In­for­ma­tion & Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Tech­nol­ogy, School of Arts, Hu­man­i­ties & So­cial Sci­ences and School of Grad­u­ate Stud­ies.

All aca­demic pro­grammes are in­ter­na­tion­ally bench­marked, ap­proved by the Malaysian Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion (MOE) and ac­cred­ited by the Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency (MQA). The univer­sity also of­fers more than 170 ex­ec­u­tive and pro­fes­sional pro­grammes through the School of Pro­fes­sional & Ex­ec­u­tive Ed­u­ca­tion and School of Tech­ni­cal Ed­u­ca­tion, En­gi­neer­ing & Reskilling.
