Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA), and has maintained this Excellent rating in the SETARA 2013

Ratings and the latest SETARA 2017 Rating. Under the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) 2017 Ratings, APU

Originally established as the Asia Pacific Institute of Information Technology (APIIT) in 1993 and Asia

Pacific University College of Technology & Innovation (UCTI) in 2004, APU’s sound approach to nurturing

school leavers into qualified professionals has resulted in our graduates being highly sought after by

employers. With an international student community of more than 11,000 students from more than 110

countries studying in its Malaysian campus, APU offers a truly cosmopolitan learning environment which

prepares students well for the global challenges which lie ahead. APU offers a wide range of degrees with

Technology as a common core. It is APU’s aim to nurture and encourage innovation through our

programmes, with the intention of producing individuals who will learn, adapt and think differently in new

and better ways.

The Asia Pacific University has and always will, continue to develop and deliver its academic programmes

through unique and well-established international partnerships, particularly with Staffordshire University UK

but also with other partners throughout the world. This formidable combination of Malaysian homegrown

programmes fortified with international benchmarking, provides our students with the assurance that the

qualifications gained from APU truly meet international quality standards.

APU’s achievements bear testimony to our commitment to excellence in higher education and training, as

well as innovative research and development and commercialization. APU (via APIIT) is Malaysia’s first

Institution to achieve Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) Company Status. Through our network of APIIT

Education Group branch campuses established in Sri Lanka and India, APU also reaches out to young

aspiring professionals in these countries, providing them with a unique opportunity of experiencing

international best practices in higher education using curricula, processes, resources and systems which
