Institute of Professional Studies at UCLan Cyprus

Welcome

The Institute of Professional Studies at UCLan Cyprus is a model educational institution, established in 2013, to serve as a hub that bridges education with industry, by combining academic knowledge with technical training. The Institute of Professional Studies is committed to provide students, not only with the necessary knowledge, but also with the technical skills and competences, the abilities and the experiences that will allow them to pursue a career in the local and the international market in their field of expertise.

Driven by our ultimate goal - the proper professional development of our students - our efforts have primarily been focused on creating a group of Instructors comprised by experienced academics in higher technical education, as well as specialised and highly qualified professionals from the local and international industry, aiming to transfer both the knowledge and experience to the students during their studies.

Most importantly, the Institute has been actively working on the creation of a network with multinational organisations and certification bodies with a long presence in the local and international industry. All partnerships of the Institute are intended to both ensure the quality of education provided to students and to certify their skills by internationally recognised organisations.
