Athabasca University (AU) is an open university; anyone over the age of 16 is welcome to apply to become a student and take an online course or courses. Many students who take advantage of this policy are ‘visiting students’, students in programs at other universities who can’t fit certain required courses into their on-campus schedules. Others include working professionals who need a course or two in a certain topic, or people who just want to learn more about a subject such as personal finance or e-commerce.
