Partner Network: Public organisations
The Association of Commonwealth Universities

The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) is the world's first and oldest international university network, representing the world’s youngest populations.

Partner Information
  • Overview

Established in 1913, the ACU has over 500 member institutions in over 51 countries across the Commonwealth. ACU members are linked by a common belief in the value of higher education to society, the conviction that this value is enhanced by international collaboration, and a passion for rigour and excellence.

With three distinct but interconnected areas of work – member services, programmes, and scholarship administration – supported by robust infrastructure and governance arrangements, the ACU combines delivering value to its members with achieving impact on the world of higher education and wider society.
