Since its establishment in 1989, the University of Cyprus has consistently pursued excellence, fulfilling its mission to the Cypriot society. Today, the University is recognized as the most important research and higher education institution of Cyprus, and has also, moreover, been honoured as a 'distinguished Mediterranean University'.
Currently, the University comprises eight Faculties and 22 Departments offering a wide range of undergraduate, postgraduate and research study programmes to more than 7000 enrolled students. The University employs over 900 people in its academic and administrative staff.
As the University is now a member of the international network of universities and an active participant in the research community worldwide, our vision is fully realized. The University believes that freedom of education must go beyond national borders, and for this reason our very active participation internationally is essential. This involvement not only enhances our goal to provide our students with an education equal to that of the best universities worldwide, but it also enhances the University's international reputation.
