Frequently Asked Questions

Delivery of Courses with Physical Presence2021-09-15T14:45:23+03:00

The Fall 2021 Semester will commence on 27 September 2021 with face-to-face, on-campus courses and with the display of a SafePass, in accordance with all health and safety protocols of the state.

More specifically, all laboratory courses and the vast majority of the remaining courses will be offered on campus with physical presence. In case of non-laboratory courses, where the capacity of the classroom/learning space of a section/course is less than the number of students register for the section/course, then a blended/hybrid learning model will apply, with registered students divided into two groups that will alternate between face-to-face and online lectures each week. This will ensure the same learning experience for all students, since they will all attend an equal number of lectures/learning activities either physically or online.

The use of Livestreaming technology will provide for the synchronous online broadcast of the learning process in the classroom/learning space. Students will have access to asynchronous self-study digital material available on the University’s e-learning platform. In exceptional cases, a course may be offered fully online, following relevant communication with the Cyprus Agency of Quality Assurance and Accreditation in Higher Education and approval by the Rectorate.

Vulnerable groups – Unable to Attend Classes Face-to-Face2021-09-23T13:22:47+03:00

Livestreaming and/or asynchronous self-study digital material will be available for students who belong to vulnerable groups or cannot return to Cyprus, as well as for students who, for any serious reason, cannot attend classes with physical presence (face-to-face).

Students in the above-mentioned categories will have to submit a request for approval to the office of the Director of Academic Advising ([email protected]) along with all necessary documentation.
