CityU’s 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.
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.
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.” (CUCN 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.
