Career and Employability Office
University is a vital stepping stone to a successful career and our priority is supporting you in achieving this objective. This is why we place enormous emphasis on enhancing your employability post university.
Our Career and Employability Office provides you with vital insights and awareness of your professional choices, and will assist you in exploring career opportunities locally and abroad. You will also have access to information and guidance, through a series of workshops, presentations and seminars. One of the most important events organised every spring by UNIC, is the Annual Cyprus Career Expo, which is an excellent networking opportunity for students/alumni and potential employers.
In parallel, our European Documentation Centre (EDCUNIC), which promotes services and tools provided by the European Commission, offers advice, guidance and training on using EU resources/tools to search for internships/traineeships and jobs in the European Union. These placements refer to either specific EU institutions (e.g. European Parliament, Court of Justice) or companies in EU countries. In addition, EDC-UNIC helps students make informed decisions when moving to another country, providing access to legal, administrative and demographic information.
Global Career Opportunities
Many former UNIC graduates have gone on to work in renowned multinational companies, both in Cyprus and also in their respective home countries, or have succeeded in establishing successful businesses of their own in a variety of exciting industries.
