The Asia Pacific Institute of Information Technology – Sri Lanka (APIIT-Sri Lanka) was incorporated in September 1999 with the Board of Investment approval to offer tertiary education in IT, Business Studies and Law in partnership with the Asia Pacific Institute of Information Technology – Malaysia and Staffordshire University, UK. APIIT-Sri Lanka
also has credit transfer arrangements with a number of reputable
universities in the UK and Australia and thus forms part
of an international collaboration in cross border education.
APIIT-Sri Lanka’s principal purpose is to produce
internationally recognised computing and business professionals
who will meet the demands of the industry and commerce
and contribute to the socio-economic development of the
country. To achieve these objectives, APIIT-Sri Lanka
provides excellent opportunities for classroom learning,
independent and group studies and research.
In a short period of nine years APIIT-Sri Lanka has expanded rapidly and grown in stature. Today, APIIT has emerged
as the undisputed leader amongst higher education institutes
in the private sector. APIIT is also known as a responsible
provider of tertiary education and is held in high esteem
in academic circles both in Sri Lanka and abroad.
The cornerstone of success has been the consistent upholding
of high standards and quality of education programmes.
This is achieved through constant attention to critical
factors that underpin quality, namely, the adoption of
international curricula to suit the Sri Lankan context,
recruitment of highly qualified and competent lecturers,
strategic investments to maintain the teaching facilities
at the cutting-edge and efficient delivery and management
of educational programmes.
