Cyprus Government Educational System

The Cypriot education priority is to prepare people with faith in the values of freedom, democracy and justice.

Public education in Cyprus is provided at three levels:

• The necessary educational level

• The upper secondary, middle level technical and professional level

• The tertiary level

Except from public schools there are private schools also which usually follow foreign educational systems mainly English or French.

In addition, Cyprus education also offers special schools for children with disabilities (deaf, blind, children with mental retardation, children with mobility problems and behavior).

In Cyprus, student’s have the chance after they finish school, go on their studies to universities.

We have the Open University in Nicosia, the University of Technology in Limassol and other private higher schools.
