What our Students say

Before starting my university experience, I aimed to find a programme that would give me all the necessary tools to stand out when I finish my degree. Studying Computer Science at UNIC has helped in creating a very strong basis to build my future. The coursework and the deep knowledge and experience of the lecturers on their topics gave me added motivation, and has helped to jump-start my career path to becoming a software developer

Savvas Karasavvas, Computer Science – Concentration in Cyber Security, Class of 2017

Studying Computer Science at UNIC is a great experience. The staff is knowledgeable and always willing to share their expertise and provide support. The majority of classes have an impressively low student-to-teacher ratio, which makes it easier to get to know your fellow classmates, and also gives professors the opportunity to familiarise themselves with their students and deliver material at the right pace.
