Brief Description – who we are

CityU operates at the center of the educational sector of Nicosia. It is proud of its continuous progress in terms of cultural expression and creativity.

CityU is a private institution of Higher Education located in Nicosia, Cyprus. The College, which commenced operation in 2014 at its 19 Stasinou Str. was set up to provide a high standard of tertiary level (higher) education and since then has achieved an outstanding reputation in Hospitality, Management, Accounting, Finance, Business and Computing Studies.

CityU has two modern buildings with state of the art facilities. The new building is only a few minutes’ walk from the main building located in the same street. Both premises of the College are fully operational since August 2016. The new building has dramatically improved the facilities available to faculty and students and has marked the beginning of a new era for the College. Operating in an impartially diverse community, CityU places great emphasis on the ability to transfer knowledge through high quality teaching techniques in an environment that reflects values and encourages integrity.

Well-designed educational pathways, taught and supported by the CityU team of high qualified professionals, will aim in shaping you up academically but also sculpture your personality; a quality fading out with time. At CityU we believe in students who are committed in achieving excellence and together will put aside all life obstacles in order to achieve the set goals and reach the dream.

 

Our philosophy

Our philosophy is based on the following core values and principles:

Access to education: Opportunity to learn should be open to anyone and anywhere and education should be affordable and accessible to all.Global Approach: Education should not only be tailored to local labor market needs, but also to the needs of the growing global markets.

Flexibility: Programs and services that maximize convenience to students, and are tailor-made to their needs.

Innovation: Education that breaks down the barriers of time and place and is based on best modern practices.

Results: Education should lead to the development of critical thinking and continuing personal growth. Graduates must be competent to offer to the professional community they belong.

 

Our Vision and Mission

CityU’s mission is to provide modern academic programs that are results-oriented and that focus on the student’s needs, so that every graduate may aspire to become a competent and qualified professional, in today’s rapidly changing environment.

CityU was the first College to focus -besides the needs of young students- on the needs of working adults. We understand students’ wishes, more options, and fewer hassles. That’s why we offer flexible, self-directed programs that fit the students’ life and how they want to learn.All of our students experience an urge; the desire for something more. Continuing education means different things to different people, and we’re open to your point of view.

 

Programmes of Studies

Our programs are designed with one goal in mind: to get you everything you need to pursue the career you want and succeed. “As we move forward with bold plans of Global Expansion and more exciting programmes, and by making accessible education a reality for anyone with the desire to succeed, our aim is to offer every student the opportunity to have a unique experience and unforgettable student years.” (CityU President)

As mentioned above, CityU focuses first and foremost, on students and their educational and personal well-being. CityU takes into consideration the students’ education and students can contribute to the design of learning experiences through their constructive feedback and criticism. In this way, we are able to facilitate interactions among learners to promote and sustain sufficient learning.

CityU offers among others, degree programmes in the areas of International Hospitality & Tourism Management, Business Administration, Retail & Merchandising Management, Hospitality & Tourism Animation.

In addition, CityU in collaboration with the Cardiff Metropolitan University (CMU) offers under franchise agreement a large variety of programmes such as: 3-years’ Bachelor degrees in Accounting & Finance, Computing, Business & Management Studies and Psychology.

Furthermore, 1-year Master degrees in Business Administration, International Hospitality & Tourism Management, International Business Law, Health Psychology and other are offered.

All courses are conducted by carefully selected high-level teaching staff who can guarantee a valuable learning experience. They are carefully designed to equip the students with the proper educational & technical background but also the ones offered under franchise aggreements aim in building students with the personality required to stand out in a very competitive work envinment. Additionally, they are designed to correspond to academic programmes of other Universities giving the students the opportunity to easily transfer to other academic Institutions in various countries such as the U.K., France, Greece, Australia, U.S.A., etc, without losing credits.

CityU is committed in building an inclusive community, and in providing resources and support to help the students learn, develop and grow in their pursuits beyond of the classroom.

The CityU also offers a variety of services and support to students seeking to increase their level of involvement within
the institution. CityU concentrates in applying the neccessary policies, procedures and educational programmes of high standard, providing the best it can be achieved to the benefit of its students.

ECTS

ECTS stands for European Credit Transfer System and it is a learner-centered system for credit accumulation and transfer based on the transparency of learning outcomes and learning processes. Its aim is to facilitate planning, delivery, evaluation, recognition and validation of qualifications and units of learning as well as student mobility.

This ECTS system makes it easier for universities to recognize the learning achievements of students by using commonly understood measurements, credits and grades, and also provides a means of interpreting national systems of higher education.

ECTS credits are based on the workload students need in order to achieve expected learning outcomes. Learning outcomes describe what a learner is expected to know, understand and be able to do after successful completion of a process of learning.

ECTS credits are based on the workload students need in order to achieve expected learning outcomes. Learning outcomes describe what a learner is expected to know, understand and be able to do after successful completion of a process of learning. They relate to level descriptors in national and European qualifications frameworks.

Workload indicates the time students typically need to complete all learning activities (such as lectures, seminars, projects, practical work, self-study and examinations) required to achieve the expected learning outcomes. Sixty (60) ECTS credits are attached to the workload of a fulltime year of formal learning (academic year) and the associated learning outcomes. In most cases, student workload ranges from 1,500 to 1,800 hours for an academic year, whereby one credit corresponds to 25 to 30 hours of work.

The Diploma Supplement provides transparency and facilitates academic and professional recognition of qualifications (certificates, diplomas, degrees).

It is issued in English and given free of charge to every student upon graduation.
