Indeed, APIIT’s system of education produces graduates who embody Staffordshire’s commitment of producing The Staffordshire Graduate – graduates who possess the key skills of employability, enterprise and entrepreneurship – and the ability to stand out in the job market. As APIIT students studying on Staffordshire University degrees, our students get a whole lot more than just an understanding of their subjects, but will leave with a set of attributes that prospective employers not only look for but will value and respect. At the same time, APIIT’s own Foundation and Diploma programmes are also externally quality assured by Staffordshire University, which ensures that students obtain an internationally benchmarked qualification while also ensuring successful progression into the degree of their choice.
This approach in providing internationally benchmarked education also extends beyond the borders of Malaysia, and is closely replicated within our family of APIIT branch campuses operating in Sri Lanka and in India. Among Malaysia’s first MSC-Status Institutions, APIIT has also achieved a strong track record in research, development and commercialisation, winning more than 50 Malaysian and international awards to-date for its innovations, products and student projects. In recognition of its focus on quality in education, the APIIT Education Group received the Prime Minister’s Award of Excellence in 2011, as well as the Export Quality Award from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry, Malaysia.
APIIT’s academic programmes are approved by the Ministry of Education of Malaysia and the qualifications are fully or provisionally accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA).
