Universities in the nation, also known as the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, are stepping up their recruitment efforts for students by offering low tuition and housing costs, internationally recognised degrees, and other incentives for students from developing nations to choose the nation as their study destination. One of the universities, Cyprus International University is promising a “peaceful environment” and a simple application visa process in promotional messages by its agents targeted at the two continents. The university is also promising the possibility of scholarships to international students, noting that its degree programs are offered in English, priding itself of hosting no fewer than 20,000 international students.

The university is citing “progression agreements” with the universities of Wolverhampton and Sunderland in the United Kingdom as well as “dual degree” programmes with the European University Business School, the University of Rome Tor Vergata, and the Paris School of Business as additional reasons why international students should enrol in promotional materials shared by its agents. 

“Undergraduate tuition costs about €2,900 each year. The cost of housing might range from €100 to €150 per month and €1,200 per year. Meals costs about €80 per month and all universities are well-known worldwide, according to Muhammad Faheem, one of the institutions’ agents, who spoke to The PIE News. On the other hand, according to Faheem, who is stationed in Islamabad, Pakistan, the institution charges about €900 for postgraduate degrees and provides practically all major courses.

Once they have satisfied the requirements for admission, students only need to pay an initial deposit of about €950 to confirm their spot and obtain a Final Acceptance letter, which is required for travel.
