University of Cyprus


The main objectives of the University are twofold: the promotion of scholarship and education through teaching and research, and the enhancement of the cultural, social and economic development of Cyprus. In this context, the Univeristy believes that education must provide more than mere accumulation of knowledge. It must also encourage students’ active participation in the learning process and acquisition of those values necessary for responsible social involvement. The University sets high standards and research is promoted in all departments for its contribution to scholarship in general and for its local and international applications.
