I loved the pro­gram. Every­thing was great! The teach­ers were awe­some — so smart and personable.

The cours­es blend­ed with my cur­rent line of work and, at the same time, pro­vid­ed me with new insight into a broad­er range of pri­va­cy topics.

I enjoyed being able to net­work and talk to peo­ple who work in a sim­i­lar field to mine.

Excel­lent job on the online deliv­ery. Oth­er edu­ca­tion­al insti­tu­tions are much more com­pli­cat­ed! We had great instruc­tors, and I enjoyed the abil­i­ty to con­nect with oth­er local gov­ern­ment pro­fes­sion­als dur­ing the discussions.

The pro­gram is very rel­e­vant to munic­i­pal operations.

A big plus is the inter­ac­tion you get through­out the cours­es. You hear dif­fer­ent sto­ries, lis­ten to dif­fer­ent opin­ions… It real­ly helps you to gain some perspective.

Man­age­ment Devel­op­ment Cer­tifi­cate for Pro­fes­sion­al Engi­neers & Geoscientists student

It was great to be able to get a uni­ver­si­ty edu­ca­tion on my own time. I appre­ci­at­ed the feed­back I received and enjoyed see­ing the var­i­ous styles of oth­er stu­dent art­works. Loved the instruc­tors. Loved becom­ing absorbed in the work.

Visu­al Arts student

The cours­es gave me very prac­ti­cal infor­ma­tion that can be applied to my work and increased my knowl­edge in my field of interest.

This was my first ful­ly online pro­gram, and I loved it. Nev­er thought one can learn so much using this method. Now I am hooked!

I loved the one-on-one instruc­tion and the inter­ac­tion with oth­er stu­dents. Loved watch­ing them learn and per­form in class while I also advanced on my own art.

Visu­al Arts student

The instruc­tors are great, and the cours­es very well designed.

Busi­ness Analy­sis Pro­fes­sion­al Citation student

Such a great course! What I enjoyed the most was the mas­tery of both sub­ject con­tent, knowl­edge deliv­ery, and moti­va­tion­al leadership.

Applied Geo­sta­tis­tics student

The broad scope of the infor­ma­tion pro­vid­ed helps you under­stand most aspects of local gov­ern­ment operations.

Nation­al Advanced Cer­tifi­cate in Local Author­i­ty Admin­is­tra­tion Lev­el I student

My group con­sist­ed of four peo­ple. Two teach­ers from Gifu Uni­ver­si­ty and two stu­dents from U of A’s Edu­ca­tion­al Psy­chol­o­gy. The group inter­ac­tion was very mean­ing­ful, and we were able to exchange ideas about the dif­fi­cul­ties of teach­ing with diverse fac­ul­ty and stu­dents whose first lan­guage is not Eng­lish, the stu­dents’ hon­est impres­sions, and ways to facil­i­tate communication

Eng­lish-medi­um Instruction student

The course­work was very relat­able. I found that all of the cours­es were applic­a­ble to my day-to-day func­tion at work.

Nation­al Advanced Cer­tifi­cate in Local Author­i­ty Admin­is­tra­tion Lev­el I student

The fac­ul­ty is real­ly good. They often shared their real-life expe­ri­ences with us, which was a great way of learn­ing more about the world of business.

Busi­ness Analy­sis Pro­fes­sion­al Citation student

I enjoyed the excel­lent instruc­tors, the cama­raderie of my fel­low stu­dents, and how this pushed me to expand my abilities.

Visu­al Arts student

The instruc­tors pro­vid­ed us stu­dents with insid­er infor­ma­tion about the con­struc­tion indus­try that you will nev­er receive from a textbook.

Con­struc­tion Man­age­ment and Admin­is­tra­tion Certificate student

I learned a lot about teach­ing meth­ods, edu­ca­tion tech­nolo­gies, and pro­nun­ci­a­tions. Espe­cial­ly, it is still not com­mon in Japan to use those edu­ca­tion tech­nolo­gies, I think they are very use­ful and help­ful for both teach­ers and students.

Eng­lish-medi­um Instruction student

The instruc­tors were very knowl­edge­able. I learned a lot from them.

Visu­al Arts student

I real­ly liked how eClass is easy to nav­i­gate and to use.

The office was flex­i­ble and help­ful when I need­ed an accom­mo­da­tion to fast-track the pro­gram. I also liked that we always had plen­ty of time to com­plete assign­ments. The teach­ers were very nice.

Res­i­den­tial Inte­ri­ors Certificate student

The IAPP pro­gram was flex­i­ble enough to adapt to my work and life sched­ule. It was doable while work­ing full time and being a sin­gle par­ent to two kids.

The instruc­tors are expe­ri­enced and engag­ing. They effec­tive­ly lever­aged cur­rent events and prac­ti­cal exam­ples to rein­force key concepts.
