EDUCATION SYSTEM IN CYPRUS

The higher education system of Cyprus comprises both public and private institutions. The state established three state universities. The University of Cyprus, which opened in September 1992, has six faculties (Humanities and Social Csience, Pure and Applied Sciences, Economics and Management, Letters, and Engineering). Studies are organized in semesters, and subjects taught are counted credits. The Council of Ministers decided to proceed with the establishment of two state universities: the University of Applied Sciences and Arts and the Open University of Cyprus and appointed two interim Governing Boards to do so.
