Welcome to UCLan Cyprus

The University of Central Lancashire, Cyprus (UCLan Cyprus), is located in Pyla, Larnaka, and is the only university in the country that can offer students the advantage of an honours or postgraduate degree recognised both in the UK and in Cyprus; truly international qualifications to enhance employability at home and overseas.

Our qualifications are dual awards from the two Universities of UCLan in the UK and UCLan Cyprus.

We bring to Cyprus a world-class reputation for academic excellence and innovative thinking, with strengths in applied research and the provision of practical solutions for business.

This means we are able to offer a unique blend of knowledge, practical experience and modern relevance to equip our students experience in every aspect of their university life, whether it’s learning, personal support, facilities and accommodation, employability or enjoyment and fun.
Our commitment to this ethos is at the heart of everything we do.



A motto that has been UCLan's focus from 1828 and ever since.
