ACD member countries have recognised AeU as an instrument for greater Asia-wide cooperation and a catalyst in narrowing the digital divide among communities and nations. AeU is set to champion e-Education efforts to meet the human capacity needs of Asia.

I choose AeU because its programme is recognised by the Ministry of Higher Education. I found that it provided flexibility for working adults like me while the faculty members tailored their pedagogical skills to suit adult learners. The independent learning environment has honed my critical thinking skills and made me a more strategic thinker. I am better able to evaluate issues and make important decisions at work.

I choose AeU because it is well-recognised, and the lessons are scheduled to cater for working adults. Time management is essential to fulfilling my commitments at work, home and university. AeU's e-learning modules and the flexibility it gives me to select what I want to do each semester have followed me to better manage my time. Studying at AeU has not only expanded my knowledge but also instilled discipline and improved my time management skills - abilities which I believe will aid me in future.

I believe ODL courses offered by AeU allow working adults to gain key qualifications to remain competitive at the workplace without giving up their job. With many specialisations to choose from, we can enhance our expertise in a field we are already in, or opt for a specialisation that gives us the chance to learn something completely now.

Taking up a doctorate programme at AeU enables me to fulfil my aspiration for higher education and gives me credibility and confidence when dealing with others. It keeps a retiree like myself updated and in touch with local and global current affairs. The plesant experience I had during my viva voce in January 2013 dovetails well and confirms my trust in AeU. My external examiner who is from the University of Oxford, another from UTAR, and the internal examiner, were linked up through tele-video conferencing at the AeU meeting room in Kuala Lumpur. This has left a mark in my advocacy for lifelong learning.
