ACU YEARBOOK DATABASE MANUAL APPENDIX 3 COMMONWEALTH UNIVERSITY ABBREVIATIONS Listed below (for use after staff degrees) are the abbreviations for names (both current and former) of Commonwealth universities etc in (or eligible for) membership of the ACU. This list also contains abbreviations for certain degree-awarding institutions whose eligibility for ACU additional membership is currently under consideration, and universities in former Commonwealth countries that have chosen to remain in ACU membership.
For abbreviations for non-Commonwealth universities and for certain Commonwealth non-university degree-awarding institutions (eg former Australian CAEs) see Appendix 4.
Abbreviations for names of the former UK polytechnics etc are not included here or in Appendix 4 because degrees for courses taken at these institutions were awarded by the Council for National Academic Awards, so BSc from Sunderland Polytechnic etc is shown as BSc CNAA.
A list of forms commonly used by certain universities, with their ACU abbreviations, is given on p. 18 of this appendix.
