Application procedures

Applications should be submitted to the postgraduate studies coordinator of the relevant department by April for entry in the fall semester and by October for entry in the spring semester. Applicants must have a university degree awarded by an accredited institution of the country where it operates, or a degree evaluated as equivalent to a university degree by the Cyprus Council for the Recognition of Higher Education Qualifications (KYSATS). 240 ECTS and a Bachelor's degree or equivalent are required as a minimum qualification.

Applications should include the following: the application form, a curriculum vitae, copies of university degrees or a statement of expected graduation in the month preceding enrolment in the postgraduate programme, a transcript, a short statement (maximum two pages) of the candidate's research goals and interests and the names and addresses of academic referees.

Applicants have to request letters of recommendation to be sent directly to the postgraduate studies coordinator of the relevant department. The department may ask for additional confidential information. The criteria for assessment of candidates are the following: academic background in the appropriate discipline, a minimum of two or more letters of recommendation depending on departmental regulations and an interview and/or written examination (if stipulated in the department's internal regulations).

The level of proficiency required in the local language depends on the institution. Postgraduate programmes are usually taught in one of the official languages of the Republic of Cyprus (Greek and Turkish). However, especially at private universities a programme may also be offered in an international language such as English.
