Association of Common Wealth Universities Wighton Fellowship in Engineering
The Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) is the world's first international university network, established in 1913.
A UK-registered charity, the ACU has more than 500 member institutions in over 50 countries. We bring together many of the most prestigious and well-funded universities internationally with relatively new institutions in some of the world’s least developed countries. What binds us together is 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 in everything that we and our member universities do.
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.
