Why study in Cyprus:

With over 300 days of sunshine a year and a summer stretching from May to October, Cyprus might be just the perfect place for abroad studies. Besides its beautiful looks, Cyprus is also becoming a centre of education in the region with the help of investments from large international organizations. English is widely spoken as the country is a former British colony and is the language of instruction in many of the higher education institutes in Cyprus, especially in the private sector.

Higher education in Cyprus is provided in both public and private institutions and the system is under constant development. The Department of Higher and Tertiary Education of the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Cyprus has taken big measures to increase funding, research and interest for higher education. Currently there are three state and four private universities in Cyprus.
