English Placement Test

All prospective students are required to take the University of Nicosia New English Placement Test Online (NEPTON) before registering for classes, unless they have passed an internationally recognised English exam which indicates their level of English (see also language policy).

The purpose of this test is to place students in the appropriate level of English in order to support their academic studies at the university. The NEPTON is not a university entrance examination; previous adacemic performance (e.g. School Leaving Certificate) is taken into consideration with regard to university entrance requirements.
