A warm welcome from #UCLanians
#UCLanians: People experiencing an awesome student life at the only world-class British University in Cyprus.
Over the past few years, #UCLanians were unstoppable! They reached the highest edge of Troodos Mountains and the highest pitch of Greece. #UCLanians won the National Competitions of Judo and University Sambo Championship. They accepted Dorians Challenge, participated in Larnaka International Marathon where UCLan Cyprus acted as Academic Partner and willingly contributed to cleaning Cyprus’ beautiful beaches in just one day with Let’s Do It Cyprus.
Except from lectures, tutorials and assessments, the #UCLanians’ academic calendar includes countless parties, clubs and society activities, charity or fund raising events and participation at the greatest conferences, events and guest lectures of the island. Some activities include the Business Innovation Awards, Code Cyprus, 1st Cyprus Science Festival, Become a Lawyer for a day, Digital Championship, but also European and International ones gaining unique experiences that will guide them throughout their life.
And of course the best is yet to come! #UCLanians promise you a great student experience while you are studying at the only British University of the island. To find out more, follow #UCLanians on Facebook & Instagram.

EMPLOYABILITY SUPPORT AND CAREER ADVICE
The Student Support Services offer the administration of two well-known, professional career tests to prospective and existing students. These enable students to gain accurate insight and a better understanding of the career path that best fits their personality. Further guidance and support is available during private sessions, where employability and career options are discussed in depth. During the Employability Days organised every few months, prospective and current students have the opportunity to meet company representatives, attend C.V. clinics, interview and presentation skills workshops, and participate in many more career enhancing events.
