Reputation matters

The U of A’s Faculty of Extension is widely regarded among business and government leaders for its ability to provide professional education that responds to the evolving industry needs.

I learned a lot about dif­fer­ent tech­niques. Get­ting advice and feed­back from the instruc­tors was very help­ful, and I liked the sense of com­mu­ni­ty I got from inter­act­ing with oth­er stu­dents, see­ing what they were doing, and learn­ing from them.

Cita­tion in Visu­al Arts Fundamentals 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 ICIR pro­gram is out­stand­ing. A real mod­el of what life­long learn­ing can be.

Indige­nous Com­mu­ni­ty-Indus­try Rela­tions Certificate student

It’s great that the instruc­tors acknowl­edge the con­straints in the life of a mature” stu­dent with fam­i­ly and job commitments.

Applied Land Use Plan­ning Certificate student

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

Infor­ma­tion Access and Pro­tec­tion of Pri­va­cy Certificate student

I real­ly enjoyed the flex­i­bil­i­ty to work and study at the same time. The evening class­es helped a lot.

Con­struc­tion Man­age­ment and Admin­is­tra­tion Certificate student

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 Certificate student

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.
