Per­son­alised for adult learn­ers

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - WORK & STUDY -

ASIA e Uni­ver­sity ( AeU) has a long his­tory of ex­tend­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to adult learn­ers who wish to progress in higher ed­u­ca­tion.

Each year, AeU wel­comes learn­ers of all ages into its var­i­ous pro­grammes of study. As many AeU stu­dents con­tinue to work full time.

AeU makes ed­u­ca­tion ac­ces­si­ble by of­fer­ing flex­i­bil­ity, bal­ance and fo­cus as well as com­pas­sion­ate staff ded­i­cated to serv­ing adult learn­ers.

Through AeU, adult learn­ers can up­grade their knowl­edge and skills for ca­reer pro­gres­sion and pur­sue life­long learn­ing am­bi­tions, all within the com­fort of their own pace, space and time.

Here are some of the suc­cess sto­ries from AeU’s alumni and stu­dents.

“We are proud to pro­vide out­reach that is con­sis­tent with AeU’s mis­sion and al­lows stu­dents to earn their de­gree from wher­ever they are in the world. We trea­sure our spe­cial cul­ture and are ex­cited to ex­tend it and build the com­mu­nity in ways that are not bound by lo­ca­tion,” says Mizana Muhamad, di­rec­tor of com­mu­ni­ca­tions at AeU.

Ac­cord­ing to her, AeU is de­vel­op­ing a stu­dent- fo­cused in­sti­tu­tion that is su­pe­rior to any­thing that ex­ists to­day.

“Technology has trans­formed all parts of our lives and will ul­ti­mately re­de­fine ed­u­ca­tion, too. We have the op­por­tu­nity to re­think how we teach what our stu­dents need to know, and AeU has a rare op­por­tu­nity to lead a trans­for­ma­tion. We are ex­cited to be in the van­guard of that change,” adds Mizana.

AeU of­fers an af­ford­able and ac­ces­si­ble path­way to higher ed­u­ca­tion through flex­i­ble en­try re­quire­ments and a learn­er­friendly aca­demic sys­tem.

Work­ing adults without the con­ven­tional pre­req­ui­site qual­i­fi­ca­tions can choose AeU’s Ac­cred­i­ta­tion of Prior Ex­pe­ri­en­tial Learn­ing ( APEL) en­try route, which recog­nises prior work ex­pe­ri­ence as a cri­te­rion for en­rol­ment.
