The University of Cyprus was established in 1989 and admitted its first students in 1992. It was founded in response to the growing intellectual needs of the Cypriot people, and is well placed to fulfil the aspirations of the country. The University is a vigorous community of scholars engaged in the generation and diffusion of knowledge. Despite its brief history, the University of Cyprus has earned the respect of the international academic community and the appreciation of Cypriot society. Its graduates are well-received by the local labour market and top research universities abroad, where many pursue post-graduate studies.

The aim of the Department of Economics is to advance economics at the national and international level through active resarch programmes and publications and up-to-date undergraduate and post-graduate programmes.

Cyprus may be just a dot on the map, but lying as it does in the sparkling blue waters of the Mediterranean, the sea whose name means the middle of the earth, the island is ideally situated for visitors to converge to from all four corners of the world. In general, and as a member of the European Union, Cyprus follows European norms and standards. English is widely spoken, as are other European languages, especially in the resort areas. The island’s year round perfect sunny weather and its spectacular scenery of turquoise seas, or pine clad mountains, the long history and rich culture provide a perfect formula for an experience everyone will remember.

Pafos (Paphos) is located on the southwest coast of the island. As the capital of Cyprus for 600 years in antiquity, the archaeological legacy of Pafos  is such that UNESCO put the whole city on its World Cultural Heritage List. Admire the intricate floor mosaics in villas dating back to the Roman period depicting scenes from Greek mythology, considered among the finest in the Eastern Mediterranean. Equally impressive are the underground Tombs of the Kings carved out of solid rock and decorated with Doric pillars.
