What Our Graduate Says?
“I chose to do my Master of Education at AeU as I was attracted to AeU’s flexible blended and online learning modes that enabled me to work and study without giving up my job and still have quality time for my family. The learning centre was also located near where I work & live in Sabah. The management learning system, myPLS is user-friendly with easy access to online modules and submission of my assignments. The online library facilities offer enormous collections of references that helped me in my research. The course fee was affordable. Despite all the challenges in my busy work schedules, I am glad I could still excel in my studies, winning the prestigious Chairman’s award. I would recommend others to experience the AeU learning that have in many ways enriched my career and personal development.”
