English Language

The English Placement Test at Intercollege assesses your English proficiency to place you in an appropriate course. This essential step ensures a tailored learning experience, so it’s advised to practice and familiarize yourself with English language structures beforehand.

Undergraduate Admission

The general admission requirement for the programmes of study at Intercollege is for applicants to have a High School Leaving Certificate OR an equivalent qualification. Certain programmes may have additional admission requirements that are specified separately according to the relevant programme details. At the undergraduate level, admission categories are as follows:


Regular Academic Admission:

Regular admission to academic programmes requires a recognised High School Leaving Certificate with a grade of 7.5 out of 10 or 15 out of 20 or a rank in the top 50% or equivalent qualifications. This status may be contingent upon demonstrating proficiency in English with a valid TOEFL score of 500 and above, or Computer-based TOEFL score of 173 and above, or Internet-based TOEFL (iBT) score of 61 and above, or GCSE (or GCE) English Language “O” Level of “C” or above, or IELTS of 6.0 and above or Cambridge Exams (First Certificate with Grade B and above, as well as Proficiency with Grade C and above), or the College English Placement Test. Advanced standing will be admitted on the basis of additional qualifications (e.g. GCE “A” Level). Students applying for the Education programmes, taught in Greek, who do not meet regular academic admission requirements will be assessed to determine if their level of Greek meets entry standards before being granted admission.


Special Academic Admission:

This category of admission may be offered to students who possess a High School Leaving Certificate but who do not have the stipulated grades or other requirements for regular admission. Such students may be eligible for special admission if they have relevant practical experience, or other records of achievement, or show evidence of ability to benefit from College education. Special admission students may take regular credits but load limits may apply until the time they establish their eligibility for regular admission. Special admission is offered to students with a low ability and with special needs.

Graduate Admission

The minimum requirement for admission into a graduate degree programme is a Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent. Students will be required to submit, besides their degree certificate, a transcript with the grades of all courses taken at the first degree level and two reference letters. Special requirements exist for different departments.

Financial Information

The tuition fees per programme are calculated based on ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System), which provides a clear and transparent method of calculating the semester and yearly tuition (based on the number of ECTS registered per semester/year).

Scholarships and Financial Aid

Intercollege offers a number of scholarships based on academic performance and/or financial criteria. Scholarships are offered to all Schools in Cyprus, both public and private and all students are eligible to apply. A number of scholarships is also offered to businesses that offer placement positions.
