APIIT Sri Lanka

Who we are

Established in 1999 APIIT Sri Lanka is a reputable higher education institution established in partnership with Staffordshire University in the UK and Asia Pacific University of Technology and Innovation in Malaysia.

We conduct Staffordshire University, UK degree programmes (both undergraduate and masters) in Business Management, Computing/IT and Law.

With over 1,000 students in enrolment and an annual intake of over 450 students, we are the largest provider of foreign degree programmes (transnational education – TNE) in Sri Lanka.

Over the past 20 years we have trained nearly 4000 graduates in Business Management, Computing/IT and Law, who are leading teams across the country in the private and international sector. Not only in Sri Lanka but internationally.

Our contribution to higher education goes beyond the production of highly resourceful and enterprising graduates; notably, we have been able to shape the development of private higher education in Sri Lanka and set a benchmark for its quality and standards.

The APIIT Pillars

To realize APIIT Sri Lanka’s purpose, and achieve goals encapsulated in our core commitments, APIIT Sri Lanka has organized itself into five cross-functional units formally designated as ‘pillars’.

The APIIT Life Pillar aims to enhance and enrich the lives of students and staff by improving opportunities for student and staff engagement in the teaching/learning process as well as co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. 

The APIIT Inc. Pillar aims to encourage entrepreneurship among our students by empowering passionate entrepreneurs – “passionpreneurs”. Students will be supported through workshops to build entrepreneurial skills and provided opportunities to showcase their business ideas.

The APIIT Lab Pillar aims to drive research at APIIT by forming research groups and encourage research collaborations within the APIIT Schools and with our higher education partners.  

The APIIT Beyond Pillar aims to facilitate the transition of our students into industry and continuously engage APIIT alumni in the teaching learning process at APIIT. The APIIT Beyond Pillar will drive internships and placement and facilitate continuous alumni engagement through social events and activities. 

The Resolvers Club Pillar aims to create a national initiative to nurture future leaders who are not only critical thinkers and problem solvers but are also empathetic. The club’s values will resonate with APIIT Sri Lanka’s core values and contribute to a transformation in society’s outlook towards education.

Welcome to APIIT Sri Lanka

Established in 1999, APIIT is a leading higher education institute in Sri Lanka offering British degrees in Computing, Business Management and Law in partnership with Staffordshire University, UK.

We have a longstanding partnership with Staffordshire University since 2000 reiterating our commitment towards quality higher education. Students who enroll for the Staffordshire University degree programs with us have the advantage of studying similar programs as their counterparts in the UK at a more affordable cost and whilst enjoying the excellent facilities we have to offer.

Our recent partnership with Deakin University, Australia provides a unique pathway for our Computing and Business Management students to study one year at APIIT and complete the remaining two years at Deakin University, which is invaluable for our students to gain world-class education with international exposure. Our dedicated and experienced faculty will prepare students for the standards expected at Deakin University to ensure a smooth transition.

We at APIIT aspire to ignite the intrinsic value of learning which will pave way in nurturing leaders who will uplift lives. Being a student centric institution, we want our students to get the full university experience. Our students are encouraged to pursue both studies as well as to take part in extra-curricular activities which provides opportunities for them to achieve their full potential in their desired paths of life.

With an alumni of over 3500 we have a track record of producing highly employable graduates, who transform into future leaders under our guidance. In addition to obtaining internationally acclaimed education, the industry connections we possess together with the emphasis we place on practical experience ensure a high employability level across all parts of the world.
