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.
