How can I study in Cyprus and be awarded a degree from a British University?
European Union regulations and the laws of the Cyprus Republic allow educational institutions in Cyprus to award degrees from recognized universities from European member states. Obviously, in order to allow this to happen, the universities must be satisfied that the quality of education at the institution with which they cooperate is of such a standard that it justifies the award of their degree. In the case of Intercollege Limassol, Middlesex University has carefully assessed the programme leading to the BA (Hons) in Business Administration and is satisfied that its quality, as well as the standard of its delivery, justify the award of a Middlesex University degree. It is worth mentioning that Middlesex University and its relationship with Intercollege Limassol are supervised by the Quality Assurance Agency of the UK (QAA), the Agency that supervises all British Universities and is known for its strict procedures.
Cypriot students registered under this programme are entitled to the Government Grant provided that they satisfy the financial criteria set by the Ministry of Finance.
