We connect you to transformative learning for life.


In the Faculty of Continuing Education at Mount Royal University, we value the delivery of flexible, accessible and relevant education, and pride ourselves on building strong industry partnerships within the Calgary community and beyond.

We are pleased to offer professional development programming for entry level and mid-career professionals, occupational programming for those seeking new careers, academic upgrading for those seeking entry into post-secondary institutions, performing arts education for children and adults, and learning pathways for adults with developmental disabilities.

Our range of non-credit programming focuses on building the practical skills and knowledge necessary for success in today’s ever-changing world. Our courses are delivered online and in person to serve our students’ diverse learning needs, and many of our programs provide hands-on, work-ready training through practicums, clinical labs, community outreach and work-integrated learning opportunities.
