History

Cyprus College, founded in 1961, is the oldest higher education institution in Cyprus. Cyprus College was instrumental in laying the foundations for quality higher education in the country and, for 60 years, has been creating the conditions for a comprehensive education that leads to successful career paths for its graduates.

Cyprus College Nicosia operates on the campus of European University Cyprus and offers programs tailored to the needs of the labour market, aiming at successful and immediate career prospects of its graduates. Thousands of Cyprus College graduates have been leading distinguished careers in their professional fields.
Cyprus College offers diploma and degree programs that are registered and evaluated by Τhe Cyprus Agency of Quality Assurance and Accreditation in Higher Education (CYQAA), thus offering students the opportunity to receive state grants and recognition of their diplomas for employment in both the private and the public sector.
A major milestone in the history of Cyprus College was the approval of its application to gain university status, which led to the establishment of European University Cyprus in September 2007. European University Cyprus offers undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral degree programs. Graduates of Cyprus College can continue their studies at European University Cyprus to obtain a Bachelor’s and/or Master’s degree.
Today, Cyprus College continues its upward path, offering two-year and four-year degree programs, and prepares students for professional accounting exams such as ACCA, ICAEW and CAT.
