University of Nicosia - Think Big
The University of Nicosia (UNIC) is the largest university in Cyprus, and the largest university in Southern Europe that teaches primarily in English, welcoming over 11,000 students from over 70 countries across the globe.
UNIC is a comprehensive university with over 100 conventional on-campus and online programmes of study, and particular strengths in medicine, the health sciences, law, accounting, architecture, and international relations. In this respect, many of our degree programmes and departments were the first of their kind in Cyprus and the wider region. UNIC’s recent focus is characterised by innovation in new technology and transnational programme delivery.
Internationalisation is a central component of our strategy. In line with that, UNIC founded and operates the first and largest medical school in Cyprus, in collaboration with St George’s, University of London, the second oldest medical school in England. We also offer a series of innovative joint degrees with some of the leading universities in Europe.
Moreover, UNIC has been a pioneer in online education in the Mediterranean, supporting both its own degree programmes, as well as those of its joint degree partners throughout Europe. In this regard, UNIC was recently awarded a 5-Star QS rating for Online/Distance Learning, becoming the first university in the European Union to be recognised in this way by the QS Intelligence Unit.
UNIC also stands out for a number of global university firsts in its dynamic initiative in cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. More specifically, it was the first university in the world to:
(a) offer a course and degree programme in the field;
(b) deliver graduates from a programme of this type;
(c) publish academic certificates and diplomas on the blockchain.
