Call for Applications


Call for applications - Academic Year 2017 - 2018


Dear Students,
The Erasmus Office of the University of Nicosia is currently recruiting students to participate in the Erasmus+ Student Exchange Programme. If you are not interested in the programme yourself, please feel free to forward this e-mail to anyone who you think might be interested.
The Erasmus+ Study Mobility is a programme that offers University of Nicosia students the chance to travel to one of the 31 partner European and non-European countries and study abroad for the academic year 2017-2018. At present, we are cooperating with 221 partner institutions that could serve as a destination opportunity for our students.
By attending the programme, University of Nicosia students can gain a lot of experience and value in education without having to worry so much about the financial aspect, as those who participate in the programme do not pay university fees abroad, only the standard tuition at the University of Nicosia. Also, those who qualify to go on mobility, will be awarded an Erasmus Grant to help them pay for their accommodation and daily expenses. A travel allowance is also provided to the students and it is calculated based on the distance between Nicosia and the host institution.
    Students interested in studying in one of the partner Universities located in Europe should refer to the list of Universities with which UNic has an established bilateral agreement, under the specific field of studies. Currently, UNic cooperates with 25 different European countries and has 211 bilateral agreements signed with different higher education institutions for academic exchanges. Please contact the Erasmus office for further guidance.

However, if a student is selected he/she is allowed to receive the same amount as the other students, independently from their country of origin.
  2. Due to limited funds, some applicants may be offered a Zero Grant mobility or reduced Erasmus Grant. The Erasmus Grant will be discussed in detail with each participant after the selection of successful applicants.
  3. Distance learning students must do their study mobility in another country than their country of origin and the country of their home University (Cyprus).
