Our overseas campus in Cyprus offers you the perfect combination of study and sunshine. Enjoy a sun-kissed Mediterranean lifestyle and a truly international student experience.
In 2012 we were proud to become the first British university to open an overseas campus in Cyprus. We’re located in Larnaka, on the southern coast of the island, where you’ll get to enjoy an impressive blend of modern facilities, an outdoor lifestyle and historic culture.
When you study with us in Cyprus you’ll graduate with a Double Degree (two certificates) – one from the University of Central Lancashire in the UK and one from the University of Central Lancashire in Cyprus.
On campus you’ll benefit from state-of-the-art lecture theatres equipped with the very latest audiovisual facilities, including tech for video conferencing and delivering presentations. You’ll also love our library, computing facilities and study zones, with WiFi available in all areas.
Our teaching and research facilities are second-to-none. Our Sports Lab incorporates the latest technological advances in the fields of sports science, including testing and metrics equipment for use with athletes of all abilities, from beginner to professional level, including ergonomic tests overseen by accredited sport and exercise scientists.
We want our students and graduates to become innovators. Our Electronic Engineering Lab features cutting-edge equipment, computers and machinery, giving you hands-on experience in design, simulation, prototyping and testing.
We also have outstanding Psychology laboratories, including a Cognition and Development Lab and child observation suite, enabling students to carry out psychological experiments and network with industry professionals.
We are the first university in Cyprus to have our own moot courtroom, which is used to train the next generation of law professionals. It has been designed to reproduce not only the appearance and activities of a real courtroom, but also the courtrooms of the future, with counsel and judges able to portray their evidence, representations and remarks onto large projection screens.
That’s not all. If you choose to live in our student accommodation, you’ll have access to an outdoor swimming pool!
