The only University in Cyprus offering joint UK and Cyprus recognised degrees

The University of Central Lancashire, Cyprus (UCLan Cyprus) is the first overseas University of the UCLan group. Other Universities will follow in Bangkok, Thailand and in Sri Lanka. It opened its doors to students for the first time on 2nd October this year at its new campus, located close to Larnaka, a short distance from the Larnaka/Paralimni A3 highway. The University offers joint UK and Cyprus degree programmes of study, which are joint awards from both UCLan in the UK and UCLan Cyprus. These degrees are recognised by the UK Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) and the Ministry of Education and Culture in the Republic of Cyprus, and are also recognised by the Cyprus Council for the Recognition of Higher Education Qualifications (KYSATS).

The School of Business and Management at UCLan Cyprus offers BA (Hons) degree programmes in Accounting and Finance, Hospitality and Tourism Management and Business Administration, with specialisations in business & management, business information systems, and international business communication. The School works with key UK accounting professional bodies, such as the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA, 9 exemptions), the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA, 9 exemptions) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), to maximise professional exemptions for those who wish to follow careers in the accounting professions. At postgraduate level, the School provides Master of Business Administration and Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) with Applied Linguistics.

The Law School offers a Bachelor of Laws degree (LLB) which is the only one in the country that has been accredited by the Joint Academic Stage Board (JASB) of England and Wales. The JASB represents the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board (respectively the regulatory bodies for solicitors and barristers in England and Wales). UCLan is ranked amongst the Top 200 Elite Universities of the World for the subject Law in the ‘QS World Rankings 2012’.

The School of Mathematics and Computing offers undergraduate BSc (Hons) degrees in both Mathematics and Computing (with specialisations in software engineering, computer games development and computer network technologies). The Bachelor of Mathematics degree is accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA).

All courses at the University are delivered in the English language. Students are taught by a team of exceptionally talented and PhD qualified academics with extensive research and international experience. UCLan Cyprus offers students a UK education on Cyprus, with the ability to transfer to identical courses in the UK. Students can thus gain an international UK degree studying either entirely in Cyprus of splitting their time between Cyprus and the UK. This flexibility of study opportunity is unique to UCLan Cyprus.

New courses starting in January next year

Ahead of its main recruitment for October 2013, the university is also offering further study opportunities starting in January. These include two new Masters Programmes in Law and Marketing, as well as a new part time route for the MBA Programme.

In addition, a new entry route into the first year of its undergraduate programmes will also start in January. Students with relevant qualifications and experience interested in this opportunity can obtain further details from the university website.

UCLan Cyprus starts its first Foundation Entry Programme in January 2013, offering international and Cypriot students the opportunity to develop English Language and Higher Education skills before entry to its undergraduate programmes in October 2013.

Tuition Fees

UCLan Cyprus believes that education is a key to unlocking future career success, and that investment in education is important for the success of both individuals and the country’s economy.
