The Intercollegiate Athletic Program is viewed as an integral part of the Universities life and enjoys the support of the student body, faculty and administration. The goal of the Intercollegiate Athletic Program at EUC is to combine athletic competence with academic excellence. Like Intramural Sports, the Intercollegiate Program is designed to benefit students educationally, recreationally and socially. The program functions as a source of entertainment for the student population and also provides financial support and educational opportunities for eligible student athletes to pursue their studies.
The University is engaged in ten intercollegiate sports. The men's program include indoor soccer, football, basketball, volleyball, handball and track and field. The women's program offers sports in volleyball, basketball, corfball and track and field. All university teams take part in the leagues organized by the Cyprus University Sports Federation.
The eligibility rules for
- participation in the teams are available at the Athletics Department. About 230 students, male and female, were active in the intercollegiate sports during last year. The University awards athletic scholarships to students who participate in the intercollegiate sports teams of the University. The Scholarships range from 5 to 50% and are based upon the participants' level performance.
