You may like studying in Cyprus so much that you simply cannot get enough of the local life style and education. In that case, you could decide to continue your studies in Cyprus. If you just graduated from an English Secondary school or a Higher education institution in Cyprus, luckily, there are plenty of opportunities if you want to stay here!
There are over 150 Higher education programmes taught in English for International students. If you have obtained a diploma and you want to continue your studies and apply for another study programme, you need to extend your residence permit. This applies, for example, if you have a bachelor’s degree and want to study for your master’s degree. Or if you have Apolytirion (school leaving certificate ) from an English school in Cyprus and you want to study in a Bachelor’s programme.
International students are allowed to study in Cyprus for a maximum number of years, which is generally equal to the number of years of the study programme chosen.
A Cyprus diploma gives to an International student endless possibilities to build up a successful future. The way of teaching, the education system and overall Cyprus culture experiences will provide a great climate for developing skills and knowledge a student couldn’t get anywhere else.
The main three industries with a high rate of employability are: Financial services and Banking, Tourism and Hotel Industry, IT industry!
If you graduated from a Higher education institution in Cyprus and you want to leave to return to your home country or move to another country, with a Cyprus diploma in your pocket chances are that you will find a job within 6-12 months, as our experience shows.
Your Higher Education Institution will issue – upon request – a diploma description which can be helpful in explaining which study programme you have followed in Cyprus and the value of the diploma you were awarded.
It provides your prospective employer, or a government agency or education institution insight into your qualifications and may improve your chances of finding work or gaining access to studies.
