The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) is a professional association for those working in higher education across the Commonwealth, providing avenues for collaboration and cooperation between its members. They provide academic research and leadership on issues in the sector and promote inter-university cooperation and the sharing of good practices.

Currently, members of ACU include some of the most prestigious universities in the world such as University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, University of London and National University of Singapore. CINEC Campus now joins this fold of distinguished educational institutes by gaining the prestigious ACU membership, awarded recently, for their highly qualified staff, high quality standards, research based culture and outstanding student support .

By being one of the members of ACU, CINEC will not only get global visibility but also be able to access various benefits such as sharing experiences, exploring ideas and discovering potential avenues for collaboration with key stakeholders in the field of higher education. They can also initiate a process of creating a breadth of relevant partnerships in research and information, internationalization, community engagement and human resource management.

The membership will also enable the students and faculty members of CINEC to avail various grants and fellowships provided by ACU to increase staff and student mobility and to compare their key management processes with a range of top universities worldwide.

CINEC Campus Vice President Prof. Nalaka Jayakody stated, "This membership is yet another successful achievement gained in line with our mission and commitment of providing high-quality education to students and advancing their learning and knowledge and helping them compete confidently in their careers in both the local and global arena. Currently, our scholastic excellence, top quality research, industry partnerships and tailored courses attract students from all around the country. Global connectivity is an essential part of any industry and now as a member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities, our degrees have the chance of being recognized by universities worldwide and we are very encouraged in attaining this accomplishment."

CINEC is presently one of the pioneer higher educational institutes in Sri Lanka with 27 years of experience in the higher education sector with over 20,000 students studying annually at the campus and offering over 185 study programmes.

Through the membership of ACU, CINEC Campus will now be in an even better position to provide a myriad of credible and vibrant opportunities in training for all their faculty members and students.
