Online Learning

Welcome to Online Distance Education at the University of Guelph

Welcome to online learning at the University of Guelph. The University of Guelph has a long tradition of offering its educational opportunities to off-campus learners right back to the 1800's and the extension programs of the Ontario Agricultural College. And that excellent tradition continues today with online learning. Taking an online course at the University of Guelph means that you have access to resources, research and experienced professors, right in your own home or office. All you need is a computer, a modem, an Internet connection, and you're in business.

If you're not sure what online learning is all about, take a few moments to look through the topics in this section. If you have any questions, please feel welcome to contact us by email ( or at 519 767-5000.
