The Eastern Mediterranean Regional Office (EMRO) is based in Nicosia and has opened to build on the University’s previous success in the country.
The island is also close to Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt which have been identified by the University’s International Centre as potential areas to develop student recruitment.
The new office has two members of staff, Anthie Panayidou and Tina Theophanous, who will offer advice on a range of subjects such as courses, bursaries and scholarships.
Jo Gittens, Director, International, said: “We are delighted to have opened our new regional office in Cyprus, which is an important market for us.
“We hope that the office will enable us to increase applications for International students and raise awareness of the range of courses we offer students, including at postgraduate level.
“We already have regional offices in China, India, Nigeria, Malaysia and Poland that offer a valuable service to our international students and their families. This new presence in Cyprus is the latest exciting development in our internationalisation agenda.”
The opening of the office was attended by Jo Gittens, Director, International Centre, Dr Bryony Conway, Dean, School of Art and Design and Jane Nelson, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Student Affairs. Other guests included Eleni Mavrou, Mayor of Nicosia, Brian Olley, Deputy British High Commissioner and Richard Law, Director, British Council Cyprus.
