About Universities in Cyprus for international students

The number of universities in North Cyprus is ever increasing as more and more institutions emerge. North Cyprus has been discovered to be one of the prime destinations for higher education institutions because the North Cyprus government subsidizes education-related activities. In 2018 already more than 80.000 students are on the Meditteranean Sea island.

In large parts, those students come from an international background e.g from African and Asian countries like Zimbabwe, Nigeria and Pakistan to name just a few.

Universities in North Cyprus are offering Bachelors, Masters, Phds and also summer schools. All of those degrees are internationally accountable and can be used to pursue further education paths.

Accommodation is offered On-Campus by most Universities but can also be pursued Off-Campus if desired.
