About us

The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) supports the development of higher education as a power for good across the Commonwealth and beyond.

As the world’s first international university network, we remain one of the most diverse, with 500+ members across more than 50 countries. 

Our work: 

  • Connects and convenes our member institutions to share best practice, and develop long-term partnerships.

  • Enhances international mobility and collaboration through scholarships, grants, events, programmes and research.

  • Bridges the gap between the higher education sector and Commonwealth governments.
