Study in Cyprus
Cyprus is an island country in the Eastern Mediterranean and the third largest and third most populous island in the Mediterranean. It is located south of Turkey, west of Syria and Lebanon, northwest of Israel, north of Egypt, and southeast of Greece. Summer is a season of high temperatures with cloudless skies, but the sea breeze creates a pleasant atmosphere in the coastal areas. Isolated thunder showers are possible mainly over the mountains during early afternoons. Winters are mild with rain and snow on Troodos Mountains (usually starting before Christmas). As the island is divided in two separate parts, the two sides have their own distinct cultures both linked to Greece and Turkey accordingly and no interchange has taken place between the two groups. The main reason to study in Cyprus is the country is very safe and the crime rates are extremely low. Living costs are standard and affordable in Cyprus. Degrees are recognized world-wide. Universities/colleges of Cyprus provide financial assistance to students who need aid in order to begin or complete their studies in Cyprus. The annual tuition fee for all international students studying in Bachelor (undergraduate) programs in CIU averages under € 3,600 per year except pharmacy, which costs € 7,000 per year. The tuition fee of the postgraduate programs (Masters and PhD) is between € 2,000 and € 2,500 depending on the program of interest.
