Message from the CEO

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.
