What Our Students say

When I look back, I regard my choice to spend my student years in Cyprus and at UNIC, in particular, as an important landmark in both my personal and professional development. The international environment and the opportunity to combine first-class studies and training with practical knowledge was a great approach and an extraordinary experience, which fully prepared me both for the hurdles one faces as an adult and the challenges in the globalised business world we now live in.

From UNIC to Carnegie Mellon to Oracle to Medallia

I am grateful to UNIC for the jumpstart in my career. I have fond memories of my undergraduate studies, and of the very cosy, friendly atmosphere on campus. From my first days, I never felt like just a number. Our professors were always accessible and willing to give detailed feedback.

I must add that the staff is highly qualified as well – even freshman courses are taught by professors holding qualifications from the best universities around the world. UNIC is also well-equipped, boasting new buildings with airy classrooms, amphitheatres, as well as a vast library. These were really the best amenities I’ve ever encountered.

The support exceeded all my expectations. I received mentoring from faculty members with respect to graduate school admissions. So many people went above and beyond and were true mentors, helping out at every stage. I would not even have dared to apply to a top school like Carnegie Mellon if it was not for the encouragement from my professors!

From Student to "Series A" Startup

Halfway through my Business Administration degree at UNIC, I recognised my interest in startups and small businesses. I soon realised that the University provides a tremendous amount of resources and support in this area. Soon after, I began my startup journey by attending relevant seminars, and by taking part in a number of competitions and projects, all with the unwavering support of my professors.

I next realised that having a professional team could push my knowledge to the next level. So, I went on a mission to find like-minded students to join me on this journey. I found many on campus and we formed a formidable team. We achieved much success in worldwide competitions, under the banner of the University of Nicosia. We were among the top ten innovation teams in the world at the Microsoft Imagine Cup, also taking first place for the “Facebook Creativity Award.” We’ve been awarded the top spot in other well-known student competitions. These were all an excellent start to the journey.
