Student Handbook

Purpose of the Student Handbook

The purpose of the Student Handbook is to provide a resource manual for all University of Nicosia students. It is designed for the student and is intended to address the questions most often asked, concerning the experience and related requirements during their studies in the University of Nicosia. The Handbook includes the University’s philosophy, mission and values, code of ethics, placement procedures, and other supplemental materials.

While it may touch on topics that are also covered in the University of Nicosia Charter, it is not meant to be a substitute. Students need to familiarise themselves with the University Charter, Rules and Regulations and other resources. View the University of Nicosia Charter and the Rules and Regulations at .

As one of our students, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns relating to the information contained in this handbook. The staff of the University is only too willing to discuss any problems and to be of assistance.
