Study in Cyprus: Tuition Fees & Scholarships

Tuition fees in Cyprus vary by institution and province, but the cost is generally more affordable when compared to other countries around the world. The level of tuition fees depends on the type of study program and its duration. Therefore, it is important that you inquire directly with the higher education institution you are interested in for accurate information regarding tuition fees. 

Tuition fees are determined by universities. The annual cost of studying at a university in Cyprus for undergraduate degree programs vary from a range of approximately 3,000 EUR to 13,000 EUR. If you want to study at the postgraduate level, the cost will vary from 5,000 EUR to 10,000 EUR. If you want to study Medicine and Dentistry, expect tuition fees to be reasonably higher, from 10,000 EUR to 22,000 EUR. Lastly, if you are interested in studying at the doctoral level in Cyprus, the cost will be approximately 7,000 EUR or higher.

Depending on your country of origin, this may sound expensive. The fact is, non-EU/EEA/EFTA (EU nationals and citizens of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland) students are likely to pay more than those from the European Union/EEA/EFTA.

Scholarships in Cyprus are generally either from the government or the university. These scholarships are offered at various undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels.
