UCLan Cyprus’ Open Days across the Island prove very successful

UCLan Cyprus has very successfully organised a week-long of Open Day events across the Island, between 21 – 25 May, 2012. The events started in Paphos before moving to Limassol Agia Napa, and Nicosia and finishing, appropriately, in Larnaka. The Open Days offered visitors the opportunity to meet staff from both UCLan Cyprus and the partner UK University of UCLan, and to find out more about the courses that will be offered this October from the University’s new campus, situated just outside Larnaka.

Visitors also had the opportunity to learn all about UCLan Cyprus’ courses in business, hospitality and tourism, accounting, English language, law, computing and mathematics, as well as research opportunities and postgraduate study. UCLan Cyprus offers its students joint UK and Cypriot degree awards, with the opportunity to take part of their studies at UCLan in England.

The turnout of visitors surpassed all expectations, attracting locals & foreign nationals, students, parents, professionals, and education counselors.

Managerial staff and academic faculty of the Universities from both Cyprus and the UK, together with the Rector of the University, Dr. Lee Chatfield, received very positive feedback from visitors for the new academic year ahead.

UCLan Cyprus will operate in Larnaka (Pyla area) as of 2 October 2012, delivering premium British Higher Education. Construction of the modern University campus is on schedule and well on its way towards its opening at the start of September. The closing date for applications for academic staff has now passed and the next month will see a series of announcements of academic appointments, Administrative and other non-academic positions will be announced in the same time scale.

All courses will meet the quality standards required by both the Cyprus Ministry of Education and Culture and the UK Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). Local students will thus gain access to British Higher Education at home, with the choice of studying their programme entirely in Cyprus or transferring for part of their studies to the UK. All courses will be taught in the English language.

UCLan Cyprus will add strength to Cyprus’ growing Higher Education sector and assist the Cyprus Government in further establishing the island as an educational Centre of Excellence in the region and beyond. To achieve this, the University will establish a number of international research centres, and engage with local and international communities and industries.
