Distance Education Unit

Message from the Director

Welcome to the Distance Education Unit !

The Unit was established in 2013 aiming to offer easy access to education opportunities to a wide number of people who are not able to attend a face-to-face program/course, due to geographical, professional, family or other constraints. In this way, the Distance Education Unit responds to the current and growing needs of our society for learning, through alternative education programs and promotes equal opportunity in education.

In collaboration with the University’s Schools, the Distance Education Unit offers Bachelor and Master Degrees, as well as shorter independent professional training and specialization programs in various disciplines, such as Education, Music Education, Psychology, Public Health, Counselling, Business Administration, Marketing, Communication and Social Media, Information Systems and English Language and Literature. Τhese programs are offered in both Greek and English.

All the distance learning programs are fully accredited in Cyprus by the Ministry of Education and Culture and in Greece by the Hellenic NARIC. 

Our programs are taught by the highly qualified faculty of the European University Cyprus or external associates, specialists in their respective fields, with experience in Distance Education and the use of Information and Communication technologies from other accredited Higher Education institutions.

Entering its fourth year of operation, the Distance Education Unit is expanding rapidly and counts students from 11 foreign countries (Greece, USA, UAE, Poland, Germany, Austria, England, France, Luxembourg, Sweden, Russia) but also many students from Cyprus as well.
