Higher Education Cyprus

About South Cyprus

Cyprus is situated in the northern corner of the Mediterranean, at the meeting point of Europe, Asia and Africa. It shares boarders with Turkey and Greece. In 2004, Cyprus officially became a member of the European Union (EU) and thus essentially became the bridge between Europe, middle east and the rest of the world. Having emerged as one of the region’s leading business and financial centres, it enjoys competitive advantages in areas such as tourism, consultancy, shipping, telecommunications, banking and insurance. Cyprus enjoys a wonderful Mediterranean climate. Apart from the light rainy season between November and March, Cyprus is sunny most of the time.
Giving these characteristics, Cyprus has become a major international education center, attracting scholars and students from all corners of the world. It is no wonder that its cultural diversity makes it a forum for international understanding and peace.
