We are wherever our students are.

AeU is a leading Open and Distance Learning (ODL) university in Malaysia, and one of the premier ODL institutions in Asia.
We have made it our mission to remove barriers that can limit access to Higher Education and make it more accessible, affordable and beneficial for our learners.

For more than 11 years, we have improved the lives of thousands of people around the world through our unique approach to education and we have learned how to deliver an exceptional educational experience for all our learners. We have taken flexibility to a new level by combining our experience in open and distance learning with the very latest technology-rich innovative learning environments.

We are strategically poised to reach learners wherever they are in the world.

We believe that everyone everywhere has a right to higher education.

At AeU, we believe everyone should have equal, open access to education.
We believe everyone, everywhere, should be able to study. Whether they are constrained by location, income, work and family responsibilities, previous educational background or just by time, we are passionate about giving learners access to higher education that fits with their lifestyle.

We also believe that technology will make education truly limitless, borderless and instantaneous. We leverage on new technologies to create an engaging, relevant, and personalised learning experience for our learners that mirror their daily lives and the reality of their futures.

We re-imagine the physical campus for the digital world.

AeU’s commitment to drive higher education’s digital frontier manifests in a number of exciting ways.
From new methods of learning to our forward-thinking staff, our technological infrastructure or our exclusive global partnerships, we are constantly striving for new ways to improve our learners’ experiences.

We will use technical tool solutions heavily to meet the desired learner experiences: best-of-breed learning management system (LMS), massive open online courses (MOOC), blockchain identity management, ePortfolio, social engagement, gamification & badges, mobile learning analytics, OER creation, virtual reality, augmented reality, artificial intelligence and others as they emerge over the next few years.

Our focus is to provide the highest quality digital learning experience to all our learners, regardless of their location anywhere in the world.
