Once You’re Here

All International students must comply with certain College and Immigration Authority regulations once they arrive in Cyprus in order to register for classes and also apply for their Student Visa.

When to Visit the Intercollege

Upon your arrival to Cyprus it is important to visit the College to register and to be given more information about the Migration procedures for your Student Visa. During your first week at the College, you will have to register with the Cyprus Migration Office in order to receive your student visa. The student visa is valid for a maximum period of one year, renewable every year for the duration of studies. It is part of the Migration regulations to repeat the blood test and chest x-ray once you arrive in Cyprus. The Office of Admissions will guide you with this procedure.

Important: all non-EU students must sign a Declaration of Intent, which will state that the students will not take, neither intent to take, any action and/or submit any application for political asylum in the Republic of Cyprus.

Feeling at Home

For most of you this is the first time away from your homes and families. Along with the feeling of excitement which comes with every adventure and new beginning you also feel the increased responsibility you have taken on. Along with these concerns there is also the feeling of homesickness that students need to tackle. Feeling homesick is common and perfectly normal for all students that choose to pursue their studies away from home. The faculty and staff of the College, understand all the difficulties and concerns students are faced with trying to adapt to a new culture and way of life. Thus, all of us here at Intercollege, will make every effort to ensure that your transition into your new way of life takes place as smoothly as possible.
