Cyprus attracts thousands of international students every year for many reasons. Capitalizing on its pleasant weather, natural beauty, academic reputation, and location at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa, Cyprus offers international students an unparalleled academic experience. It’s a dynamic and modern European country, yet it has kept its friendly and laid-back character, making it an ideal student destination that is easy to settle in and get around.

  • Academic Excellence. Cypriot universities offer internationally recognized programs of study of the highest quality, most of which are taught in English. In addition, the Universities have developed an academic environment that promotes constructive learning, academic success and the socialization of the students. The excellence of Cypriot universities is reflected in international rankings.
  • Student Support. There is a strong student-oriented philosophy and provision of a range of tailored student services, such as orientation programs, counselling centre, career office, academic support etc.
  • Mobility programs. Universities also offer funded student mobility programs (such as Erasmus+) that allow students to combine studies or work experience in different European Universities.
  • Living in Cyprus. The overall benefits of living in Cyprus include the safety (it is considered one of the safest countries in the world for young people), the good weather (with an average annual temperature of 25°C and year-round sunshine), the reasonable cost of living and the pleasant and culturally rich environment. Above all, Cyprus is renowned for the warmth and hospitality of its people, a friendly English-speaking society.

All the above elements make the island an attractive destination for students from around the world.
