International Student Services
While all first-year students participate in orientation, special orientation sessions are arranged to meet the needs of our international students. A great time to explore the campus and surrounding areas and to meet other new students, faculty and staff, these sessions help participants understand “how things work” at EUC and in Cyprus. You will gain practical knowledge about, for example, banking hours, public transport, immigration procedures and university policies, along with learning about how to make the most of your student life at EUC.This orientation will include a tour of Nicosia so you can get a first-hand look at all the capital of Cyprus has to offer for your university experience. Our student advisors will be available to help international students settle into their new environment. Download our OrientationHandbook here.

The study visa is usually the main document legalizing an international student’s presence in Cyprus. Student visas are needed for all non-EU nationals who wish to study in Cyprus. A non-EU student will need to have an approved entry visa prior coming to Cyprus. The Office of Admissions offers full guidance on the issue of student visas, deadlines and requested documents.
