International Student Support

US and Canadian study abroad students (Global Semesters) should refer to the Global Semesters website

UNIC hosts students from all over the world in a multicultural environment, welcoming a variety of international students every year. With students from over 70 countries you will join the largest and most culturally diverse student community in Cyprus.

Every effort is made to help our international students ease into university life in Cyprus, so as to make your transition here as smooth as possible.

UNIC September is the orientation programme of the University of Nicosia, designed to introduce new students to the University environment. All new students should attend UNIC September in order to learn more about their life as a UNIC student.

Once the school year begins, you will be immersed in UNIC’s international environment that includes faculty from around the world, academic partnerships with global universities, an active study abroad and Erasmus programme and a variety of national or ethnic societies and clubs. We truly value and encourage the diversity of our community.

Beyond campus, Cyprus itself is an international business and tourism hub which means there is a sophisticated and welcoming environment that was ranked the 5th best relocation country in the world. English is widely spoken and is the main language of business, making it easy for you to enjoy everything Cyprus has to offer.
