Can I have a Google Analytics account, without a Google AdWords account

I am brand new to this community and hope I am posting this in the correct section. The gist of my question is this. I have a customer, that does not have access to an AdWords and wants me to create an Analytics account for him. So the questions are, is that possible and, if so, how would I go about it.

Hi :-)
Google analytics does not require a google adwords account.
Go here and click the sign up button at the upper right
https://www.google.com/analytics/#?modal_active=none
You are signing up for analytics (not the analytics 360 suite)
You can then add the client as an admin user at the GA account level 

If you are doing this on behalf of clients, they will need their own google account so as they can then be given

access and ownership of the google analytics account after you have created it.
I also strongly recommend doing the free learning modules offered by Analytics Academy starting with the Fundamentals, it will acquaint you with the account structure, adding users and permissions, available reports etc

The help center is also a very good resource
