Bringing flexible learning to life 

With over 20 years’ experience in online and blended learning, we will give you the flexibility you need to invest in yourself and your career while also balancing life commitments, such as family, work, or caring responsibilities. Our focus has always been to deliver a flexible learning experience designed to suit you and your life.

Online – Learn online with ATU by attending live lectures through our online learning environment. Simply log on from work, home, anywhere and be part of weekly lectures. Engage in discussions, live chat, and interact with fellow students and lecturers. Unable to attend? Recorded sessions are available within hours, so students can watch back at a time that suits them.

Blended – Blended learning is a flexible way of completing your course of study, combining online aspects with in-classroom experience to allow for an accessible learning style. In a blended course, students may view lectures, access readings, ask questions and complete assignments online, so time in the classroom can focus more on discussion and activities.

On-Campus – Some of our courses are available to study fully on-campus, typically for a shorter duration than a part-time course. For an on-campus course, you will attend all lectures in the relevant campus and have the full in-classroom experience at ATU
