Staffordshire University – Our Partner in Quality:
In the course of more than a decade of providing high quality education and training, the APIIT Education Group has received the support and assistance of many reputable education providers worldwide.
This support has come in the form of partnerships for the development of curriculum, the recognition and endorsement of our students’ qualifications, activities in moderation and validation, faculty sharing and a host of other activities.
Our longest standing partner and ally through all of this has been Staffordshire University, United Kingdom and this partnership is the longest surviving relationship between a UK University and a Malaysian institution.
When APIIT was initiated by the Malaysian government to develop IT education and training, we looked for and found, in Staffordshire University, one of the key providers of IT education worldwide.
