The University of Nicosia, the largest university in Cyprus, with more than 11,000 students from over 70 countries across the globe, coming together in an innovative and transformative learning space, is the place where you can build your future.
The University of Nicosia has its roots at Intercollege, founded in 1980. Located in Nicosia, the country’s capital, and with presence in 18 other cities worldwide, UNIC is driven by its pursuit of excellence in teaching and learning, innovation, research, technology, and a continually evolving academic environment.
Many of its degree programmes and departments were the first of their kind in Cyprus. Over time, several programmes such as Medicine, International Relations, Accounting, Law, and Architecture, have developed into some of the most well-regarded in Cyprus and in the region. Today, UNIC’s new programmes focus on cutting-edge research, making us global leaders in certain fields, such as in our very successful initiative in Digital Currency/Blockchain Technology.
Internationalisation is a central component of UNIC’s strategy. This includes partnerships for degree programmes, student mobility, and opportunities for students post-graduation in academia or industry, in order to share knowledge and capabilities across countries. The first and largest medical programme in Cyprus was formed in collaboration with St George’s, University of London. Today, the Medical School attracts over 500 students from around the world.
UNIC aims to help students become educated individuals, achieve their academic and professional goals and assume responsible roles in a changing world of European cooperation and global interdependence; to promote research and the generation of knowledge; to be of service to society through the dissemination and application of knowledge, as well as through innovative partnerships with business and civic society institutions.
