What our Students say

Moving to Cyprus in order to join UNIC was one of the biggest stepping-stones in my life. At the age of 16/17,
I spent a tremendous amount of energy trying to figure out “What is next?”! Knowing that my university years would be the building blocks of my future, I came up with a rather strict compilation of prerequisites. The final list looked something like this: unbeatable worldclass education, hands-on working experience, ongoing personal growth. My high expectations led me to Cyprus and the University of Nicosia (UNIC).

Anna Rangelova, Director Client Service, Nielsen Consumer Neuroscience, Nielsen, Geneva, Switzerland, Tourism, Leisure and Events Management, Class of 2008 MBA – Concentration (Management), Class of 2010

“Every class, professor, and classmate has contributed to my education in the field of hospitality management. I feel I emerged from UNIC with a clear understanding of how to advance my strengths as an individual, as a leader, and as a team player. My professors were extremely supportive, dynamic and engaging. My courses explored both practical and theoretical aspects of the subject. Through the many hands-on experiences and extracurricular activities, I gained a fundamental understanding of the business and how to put theory into practice. Soon after graduating, I took up the position of Floor Supervisor in the housekeeping department of the Four Seasons Hotel, in Limassol. My time at UNIC prepared me well for this. Studying Hospitality Management at UNIC was a smart choice for me… it can be for you, too!”

Eliana Socratous, Hospitality Management, Class of 2016

“UNIC is well equipped for students who have relocated from another country. Faculty and students are welcoming and extremely helpful. What better first impression for a student starting in their hospitality management programme? The courses were structured perfectly for a well-rounded education in my field. With the guidance of my lecturers, I was able to work every summer, while using the skills they instilled in me to become what I am today.”

Erina Singh Ellis, Hospitality Management – Concentration in Hotel & Restaurant Management, Class of 2011

«Είμαι πολύ χαρούμενος και περήφανος που πήρα το πτυχίο μου και πλέον μπορώ να βλέπω με αισιοδοξία το μέλλον ακόμη και μετά τη ποδοσφαιρική μου καριέρα. Θα ήθελα να ευχαριστήσω το Πανεπιστήμιο Λευκωσίας, όλους τους καθηγητές μου, τους συμβούλους και τους συμφοιτητές μου για κάθε βοήθεια που μου παρείχαν σε αυτό το δύσκολο και όμορφο ταξίδι της φοίτησης μου.»
