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.

The infor­ma­tion and expe­ri­ence gained were very use­ful, and I real­ly enjoyed the inter­ac­tion with the instruc­tors and my classmates.

Supervisory Development Citation student

Just what I want­ed: it teach­es you new art skills and helps you get ready for a career as an artist. I found the con­tent and instruc­tors excellent.

Visu­al Arts
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 student

This was a won­der­ful intro­duc­tion to art. I would rec­om­mend it to anyone.

Visual Arts None - collection of courses student

The instruc­tors are first rate.

Man­age­ment Devel­op­ment Certificate student

The instruc­tion is great but, to be hon­est, I also enjoyed learn­ing from oth­er stu­dents. I haven’t worked in the indus­try yet, so hear­ing from class­mates on their chal­lenges or suc­cess­es was cru­cial for me to oper­a­tional­ize what we were learn­ing in a real-world environment.

Occupational Health & Safety Certificate 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

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