UNIC at a Glance

The University of Nicosia (UNIC, for short) is the place where you can build your future. We are the largest private university in Cyprus, with more than 12,000+ students from over 70 countries across the globe, coming together in an innovative and transformative learning space.

Located in Nicosia, the country’s capital, and with a presence in 18 other cities worldwide, we are driven by our pursuit of excellence in teaching and learning, innovation, research, technology, and a continually evolving academic environment. We empower our students and instill in them the confidence to make an impact in the world. Many of our degree programmes and departments were the first of their kind in Cyprus. Over time, several programmes such as Medicine, International Relations, Accounting, Law, and Architecture, have developed into some of the most well-regarded in Cyprus and in the region.

Today, UNIC’s new programmes focus on cutting-edge research, making us global leaders in certain fields, such as in our very successful initiative in Digital Currency/Blockchain Technology. Internationalisation is a central component of UNIC’s strategy. This includes partnerships for degree programmes, student mobility, and opportunities for students post-graduation in academia or industry, in order to share knowledge and capabilities across countries. The first and largest medical programme in Cyprus was formed in collaboration with St George’s, University of London. Today, the Medical School attracts over 500 students from around the world. In Greece, we offer several joint Masters degrees with the top Greek universities: Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, the University of Patras and the Hellenic Open University. These are some of the most popular degree programmes in Greece. We intend to actively continue our partnerships with leading universities around the world, on both the academic and research front.
