International Student Buddy

Each international student will be able assigned a International student buddy that they will get to know once they arrive to Cyprus.  We aim to match students according to their region so that they can communicate more effectively.

Please contact Student Welfare if you do not have the contact details of your buddy.

Setting up a bank account

All students must open a Bank account with a local Bank and deposit a minimum of €1,000. A UCLan Cyprus student registration letter, a Housing Contract (attested by Notary Public or the Community Council president) and your passport should be presented to the bank when opening a bank account. Do not forget to ask for a confirmation of your account’s balance.

For guidance on which banks may be more convenient/ student friendly please speak to a Student Support Officer.
