Cyprus / Entry requirements

Cyprus entry requirements

We operate a devolved admissions system and all admissions decisions are made within academic Schools. Admissions staff for individual courses reserve the right to judge the relevance and acceptability of any qualification or subject.

Our admissions staff assess each application holistically and judge whether the content and demand of the qualifications presented will have sufficiently prepared the applicant to progress on to the course they are applying for. Entry requirements will vary from one course to another and compulsory subject requirements may apply. Please refer to the specific entry requirements for your chosen course.

General requirements for undergraduate courses

Students following the Greek Cypriot (Apolyterion) system will normally by made an offer based on Apolyterion with a minimum overall score of 18+ out of 20 plus two A-levels.  The Apolyterion on its own or with one A-level may be considered at the discretion of some academic Schools.

Please refer to the information below as guidance for grade comparisons to A-level entry requirements:

  • A*AA: 19/20 + A*A
  • AAA: 19/20 + AA
  • AAB: 18/20 + AA
  • ABB: 18/20 +AB

For Schools with specific entry requirements, one or both A-levels will be required in named subjects. For example, entry to engineering courses usually requires A-levels in mathematics and physics.

The offer will vary depending on the subject you’re applying for. 

General requirements for postgraduate/research courses

Applicants holding a good four-year government-accredited bachelor’s degree with a minimum overall grade of 2.75 out of 4; or a good four-year bachelor’s degree (Ptychio) with a minimum overall grade of 6.5–5.0 out of 10 will be considered for entry to taught postgraduate programmes.

Applicants holding a good bachelor’s degree with a minimum overall grade of 6.5 out of 10 or 2.75 out of 4, or a good master’s degree, will be considered for entry to postgraduate research programmes.

English language requirements

All applicants to the University (from the UK and overseas) are required to show evidence of English language proficiency.

For further information about our English language admissions policy, including a list of the most common English language qualifications we accept, please visit our English language requirements page.

Some Schools ask that the appropriate score has been met before you apply for a course, while other departments give conditional offers subject to applicants achieving our general entry requirement level of English Language proficiency before starting the course.

Other entry requirements

Please note that this is generic information only. Faculties and academic Schools have different entry requirements and some qualifications may not be acceptable for certain courses, so it is important to check with the School directly before you apply.

Some courses have additional entry requirements such as previous work experience, submission of written work with the application or previous study of a particular subject.
