Studying online with AeU means you can tailor your education to your personal interests or professional needs, and you can complete your studies without sacrificing your family, career, or community commitments.

In today’s busy world you cannot always adjust your schedule to pursue a full-time education. Online learning enables you to further your study without putting your life on hold. If you are a busy professional looking for the next career step, online study may be the solution you need.

Over 17,000 people worldwide have studied and achieved their qualifications through online and distance learning with us. At AeU your learning comes to you with 24/7 online access, multi-device, interactive learning materials and a leading edge learning portal, called myPLS. You can study from any place in the world at any time, as long as you can access the internet. From watching tutorials on the train, writing assignments at the kitchen table or reading books in the online library whilst enjoying your holiday, you can complete your studies without putting your life on hold.

If you’re new to online learning, enrolling onto an online course can feel like a step into the unknown. You might find yourself wondering if you have exactly what you need to be able to study over the internet. The truth of the matter is, there isn’t an endless list of things you need to have to be able to study online with AeU – here are the four most important:

  • A device with internet connection

    Whether you own a PC or a laptop, your online learning experience will be dependent on your device. Once you’re connected to the internet, you will have access to our study portal, myPLS; this is your virtual classroom. Here, you can access all the tools and resources you need to study your chosen course online. From study materials and schedules, to study support and chat forums. There’s no need to buy books and other learning materials. Instead, everything you could possibly need to succeed in your studies can be found conveniently found in one place.

  • A place you can concentrate

    Different methods of learning suit different people. This can also apply to study location. The beauty of online learning is that you can study wherever you please. Do you feel most comfortable at home on the sofa, or in the spare room you’ve transformed into an office? Perhaps you like to visit the library to put yourself in the right frame of mind. Wherever it is that you feel you learn best, you must have a place the presents minimal interruptions.

  • Self-motivation

    With no physical classes to attend, you must feel confident that you are able to keep on top of your workload. To do that, you need self-motivation and self-discipline. As with regular, on-campus learning, online courses have deadlines that must be met; good time management plays a big role in helping you meet those deadlines.

    Successful online learning largely relies on you being in the right frame of mind to digest the information you’re being given. If you’re planning to study at home, it’s essential that you’re able to adopt that mindset, despite being in an environment much more relaxed than a classroom.

  • In some cases, a qualification

    At AeU, we believe that everyone should have access to the education they deserve, so we keep our entry requirements as flexible as possible. For those who are currently lacking in formal qualifications, our courses take relevant work experience into account when you apply to study with us.

As you can see, there are very few limitations when it comes to choosing a place to study if you’re an online learner with AeU. If you have internet connection and an environment you feel you’re able to concentrate in, you’re good to go!
