With around 7.000 students, 113 laboratories and 820 faculty and staff members, the University of Cyprus (UCY) based in Nicosia, the capital of the Republic of Cyprus, is a modern, diverse, and evolving student-centered institution established only three decades ago.  Aspiring to function as a beacon of scientific thought, diversity, inclusiveness, equity and creativity, UCY envisions its future as a leading institution in the greater Euro- Mediterranean area.

UCY is a rapidly expanding university and the biggest employer in Cyprus for young graduates and researchers. It currently employs about 700 young scientists using external research funds. Its 8 faculties and 22 departments offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, whilst its numerous, highly cited researchers give UCY a cutting edge.  All programmes of academic study function under the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), furthermore awarding the Diploma Supplement with DS Label.

UCY students can benefit from its state-of-the art infrastructure, affordable tuition fees, student support services, scholarships and a high employability rate after graduation both in Cyprus and abroad.  They can learn Greek at the School of Modern Greek, as well as Spanish and Chinese at the Aula Cervantes at UCY and the Confucius Institute at UCY, respectively.  UCY students benefit from lower prices for public transportation, their participation in student clubs and in international conferences, while they have the opportunity for part-time employment.

UCY is considered the leading university and the most active research institution in Cyprus. UCY implemented a large number of research projects funded by the European Commission, the national Research and Innovation Foundation and several public and private Research Organizations. In 2021, research funding from external sources reached €27 million. UCY is currently participating in 373 projects. 184 are EU-funded projects under Horizon 2020, Erasmus+, Justice, Life, Cost Action and Interreg.

Within Horizon 2020 program, UCY ranks 1st in Cyprus with 154 research projects and with a total funding of over €75,4 million from January 2014, the start date of H2020 program until May 2022. UCY ranked 137th in securing funding among the nearly 41,200 organizations participating in the Program and 98th among all the academic institutions involved. This is an honorable distinction for UCY since it surpasses, in absolute numbers, other famous and much larger universities of Europe. In general, UCY excelled in all pillars of H2020 program. Since 2017, UCY secured 3 Teaming in Excellence projects (for the development of independent research centres aiming at becoming Centres of Research Excellence), two of these three grants are worth €15 million each.

UCY ranked 1st in securing funding in the pillar “Spreading Excellence” from all organizations from the 27 WIDENING countries. Under this pillar, UCY secured 23 research projects with total funding of € 28.9 million (3 Teaming Phase 2 - € 23 million, 7 Teaming Phase 1 - € 1 million, 1 Era Chair - € 2.5 million, 4 Twinning - € 1.6 million and 8 Widening Fellowships - € 1.227.529).

Since the establishment of European Research Council (ERC) in 2007, UCY managed to win 20 ERC projects. More specifically, it was awarded 7 Starting Grants, 4 Consolidator Grants, 2 Advanced Grants, 6 Proof of Concept Grants and 1 Synergy Grant. These numbers are very impressive due to the fact that ERC funds only top researchers in Europe with excellence as the sole criterion for selection, helping them pursue great ideas at frontiers of knowledge.

Currently, UCY implements 28 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action projects. Apart from Individual Fellowships, it participates in ITNs, RISE and on Cofund Action. UCY has successfully implemented 68 Marie Skłodowska-Curie projects.

A considerable share of the University's external funding comes from the Cyprus Research and Innovation Foundation (RIF), where UCY was awarded a significant number of research projects, under the “RESTART 2016-2020 Programme for Research, Technological Development and Innovation”. From the beginning of 2017 until May 2022, UCY secured over 220 research projects with total funding of over €36 million. These funded projects include New Research Infrastructure Units, large scale Integrated Projects with big consortia, cutting-edge Research Excellence projects and Post-Doctoral Fellowships.
