University of Nicosia Digital Currency Initiative

The University of Nicosia becomes the first accredited university in the world to accept Bitcoin payments, launches an MSc Degree in Digital Currency and proposes initiation of a Comprehensive Framework for developing Cyprus into a hub for Bitcoin trading, processing and banking.

The University of Nicosia, the largest private university in Cyprus and one of the largest English language universities in the Mediterranean region, is the first accredited University in the world to accept Bitcoin for payment of tuition and other fees.

Additionally, UNic launched in Spring 2014 the first MSc program in Digital Currency in an online format addressed to students worldwide. As part of this path breaking initiative, UNic is proposing to the Cyprus Government and the relevant stakeholders that Cyprus initiate the creation of a Comprehensive Framework for developing Cyprus into a hub for Bitcoin trading, processing and banking.

Vision

The University of Nicosia aspires to be a leading contributor to excellence in education and research.

Mission

To help students become educated individuals, achieve their academic and professional goals and assume responsible roles in a changing world of European cooperation and global interdependence; to promote research and the generation of knowledge; to be of service to society through the dissemination and application of knowledge, as well as through innovative partnerships with business and civic society institutions.

Statement of Values

To foster within the University community the values of personal and academic integrity; the liberty to question and to pursue knowledge; of respect for the laws of the Republic of Cyprus, the European Union and the University; democratic governance and management of the institution; respect for persons; professionalism and diligence; ethical behaviour; civic responsibility; multi-cultural awareness; tolerance; sustainability of resources; entrepreneurship and innovation; personalised attention and student focus.

General Aims

The promotion of science, knowledge, learning and education, through teaching and research for the benefit of society;

The cultivation, transmission, application and inter-disciplinary exchange of knowledge, and

The provision of high quality undergraduate and graduate education that is internationally recognized, and of other programmes of study, which are of an international standard.

The University gives top priority to providing students with academic and professional skills such as:

(a) to become educated individuals and develop critical skills and communication abilities, achieved through liberal arts and general electives. Evidence for this is their work while at University, including critical essays, assignments, individual and group projects, presentations internships, educational trips etc; plus the various distinctions/prizes, awards earned by our students through their participation in numerous conferences, community activities, and so on; and

(b) to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for their profession, instilled through specialized courses which the relevant professions require before graduates can practise. Evidence of this being achieved is the approval of our programmes by various professional bodies such as the Legal Council of Cyprus in Law, the Nursing and Midwifery Council, ETEK in Architecture, Computer Science and Engineering and the ACCA and ICAEW in Accounting (through the maximum exemptions allowed). With these academic and professional skills, the University of Nicosia graduates are able to succeed both at a regional-European level as well at a global level.

Focus on Research

Another important priority is research and the generation of knowledge especially in an applied manner and of benefit to the economy and society. Realizing that it does not have the resources to be a top research university, the University of Nicosia emphasizes the generation of knowledge which is primarily focused on Cyprus and the region and is more applied in nature.

Contribution to Society

The third priority is service to society and innovative partnerships with other institutions. This is illustrated by the innumerable academic and public service activities such as the Citizen’s Free University, international conferences, seminars, lectures to inmates and the public presence of our faculty in the media for current affairs.

Making Cyprus an International Education Centre

The University of Nicosia also tries to contribute as much as possible to the national goal of making Cyprus a regional and international education centre; for instance partnership with St. George’s University of London which recruits mainly in the UK and has some European but no international students: this institution’s high reputation and high entrance criteria for its entrants is already attracting top quality students from the USA, Canada, Israel and other countries for the first time.

History

The University of Nicosia’s roots date back to 1980 and it’s predecessor institution, Intercollege.

Starting out small, in Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus, Intercollege initially prepared students to successfully pass external exams of professional education bodies, while soon after it began offering its own programmes of study. In a matter of a few years, the college had greatly expanded its operations, adding two campuses in the other two major cities, developing into "the largest and most reputable college in Cyprus" (according to repeated opinion surveys by independent research companies).

University Status

The University of Nicosia emerged in 2007, following changes in the relevant local legislation and a comprehensive accreditation process. Through its four schools, the University offers a diverse range of academic programmes of study, at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels (Bachelor, Master and PhD degrees). Intercollege remains an associate institution, complementing the University’s study offerings through its vocational and shorter duration programmes, and through a variety of joint programmes in partnership with UK universities.

The Leading Private University in Cyprus

Today, the University of Nicosia is the leading independent university in Cyprus; the result of solid and systematic work by all, administration, faculty and staff, as well as, the total contribution of the institution to tertiary education, not only in Cyprus but also in the region. It is the culmination of an ongoing journey, which began over 30 years ago, and has established the University as a leading tertiary education provider in Cyprus – in line with the enduring motto of the institution: “Excellence in Education”.

Systematic post-graduate training in these disciplines can be a critical asset for people who aim to work in a multitude of sectors, organizations and professions. Indicatively, the skills that graduates of the program will derive will be useful: 1. In senior or junior employees of the Public Service and various state or semi-state organizations. 2. Executives of international organizations such as the European Union, the UN, the Council of Europe etc. 3. Executives Non-Governmental Organizations, international or national. 4.

The overall objective of the Programme is to develop the level of knowledge, skills and abilities of graduate students in the abovementioned disciplines, the main axis of the interdisciplinary approach and the consequent realization (a) of the multidimensional nature of the issues that will have to face in their careers and (b) the "goodwill" that brings interdisciplinarity and methodical, multi-faceted approach to the issues. Pillar of the educational approach is to combine the theoretical with the practical dimension of the issues that arise in cognitive Public Law and Political Theory unity and development of the ability to theoretically sound and practically tackle these issues.

Σκοπός του Προγράμματος είναι να παράσχει τη δυνατότητα για δι-επιστημονική προσέγγιση, εμβάθυνση και εξειδίκευση στη γνωστική ενότητα που συγκροτείται από τα γνωστικά αντικείμενα/πεδία του Δημοσίου και του Ευρωπαϊκού Δικαίου, της Πολιτικής Θεωρίας, της Πολιτικής Επιστήμης, των Διεθνών και Ευρωπαϊκών Σπουδών και άλλα αντικείμενα που εντάσσονται στο ευρύτερο πεδίο των Πολιτικών Επιστημών. Η συστηματική, μεταπτυχιακού επιπέδου κατάρτιση στα παραπάνω γνωστικά αντικείμενα μπορεί να αποτελέσει κρίσιμο εφόδιο για άτομα που στοχεύουν να εργαστούν σε πλήθος τομέων, οργανισμών και επαγγελμάτων. Ενδεικτικά, τα εφόδια που θα αποκομίζουν οι απόφοιτοι του Προγράμματος θα είναι χρήσιμα: 1. Σε ανώτερα ή κατώτερα στελέχη της Δημόσιας Υπηρεσίας και διαφόρων κρατικών ή ημι-κρατικών οργανισμών. 2.

Σε μέλη του διπλωματικού σώματος και σε άλλους εργαζομένους σε Πρεσβείες ή άλλες Υπηρεσίες και Οργανισμούς που ενεργοποιούνται στο πεδίο των διακρατικών σχέσεων. 5. Σε εκείνους που πρόκειται να ασκήσουν πρακτικά τη νομική επιστήμη, είτε ως δικηγόροι, είτε ως νομικοί σύμβουλοι σε εταιρείες και σε δημόσιους ή ιδιωτικούς οργανισμούς, ΜΚΟ, διεθνείς οργανισμούς κ.ο.κ., είτε ως δικαστές. Γενικός στόχος του Προγράμματος είναι η ανάπτυξη του επιπέδου γνώσεων, δεξιοτήτων και ικανοτήτων των μεταπτυχιακών φοιτητών στα προαναφερθέντα γνωστικά αντικείμενα, με βασικό άξονα τη διεπιστημονική προσέγγιση και τη συνακόλουθη συνειδητοποίηση (α) του πολυδιάστατου χαρακτήρα των θεμάτων που θα κληθούν να αντιμετωπίσουν στην επαγγελματική τους σταδιοδρομία και (β) της «υπεραξίας» που κομίζει η διεπιστημονικότητα και η μεθοδική, πολύπλευρη προσέγγιση των θεμάτων. Πυλώνα της εκπαιδευτικής προσέγγισης αποτελεί ο συνδυασμός της θεωρητικής με την πρακτική διάσταση των ζητημάτων που ανακύπτουν στη γνωστική ενότητα Δημοσίου Δικαίου και Πολιτικής Θεωρίας και η ανάπτυξη της ικανότητας για θεωρητικά στέρεη αλλά και πρακτικά αποτελεσματική αντιμετώπιση των ζητημάτων αυτών. Από τη σκοπιά των επιμέρους γνωστικών αντικειμένων, ιδιαίτερη έμφαση θα δοθεί στην ευρωπαϊκή διάσταση των ζητημάτων και στη διασύνδεσή τους με τις προκλήσεις, τις αδυναμίες αλλά και την προοπτική της ευρωπαϊκής πολιτικής, οικονομικής, πολιτιστικής και κοινωνικής «ολοκλήρωσης» (European integration). 6.2. Ειδικοί Στόχοι Πρώτος ειδικός στόχος του Μεταπτυχιακού Προγράμματος Ευρωπαϊκού Δημοσίου Δικαίου και Πολιτικής είναι η αφομοίωση των βασικών εννοιών και μεγεθών του Δημοσίου Δικαίου και των Πολιτικών Επιστημών, όπως είναι λ.χ. οι έννοιες/μεγέθη του κράτους και της κρατικής, λαϊκής ή εθνικής κυριαρχίας, της δημοκρατίας και του κράτους δικαίου στις διάφορες πτυχές του (φιλελεύθερο, δημοκρατικό, κοινωνικό), της Δημόσιας Διοίκησης, του Συντάγματος και των διεργασιών παραγωγής του (συντακτική εξουσία), της ομοσπονδίας και των άλλων μορφών διεθνικής συνεργασίας κ.ο.κ. Η κατανόηση των παραπάνω εννοιών/μεγεθών αποτελεί sine qua non όρο για την εις βάθος προσέγγιση πολύπλοκων προβλημάτων, όπως λ.χ. η ευρωπαϊκή πολιτική ολοκλήρωση, οι προκλήσεις που παρουσιάζει η συμμετοχή ενός κράτους μέλους στην ΕΕ, το πολιτειακό status και οι μελλοντικές προοπτικές της Κυπριακής Δημοκρατίας κ.ο.κ. Δεύτερος ειδικός στόχος του Προγράμματος είναι η παροχή των αναγκαίων γνώσεων γύρω από τις βασικές θεωρητικές προσεγγίσεις και γύρω από τα πλούσια θεσμικά και νομικά δεδομένα σε σειρά γνωστικών αντικειμένων, όπως η συνταγματική οργάνωση του κράτους και της διακυβέρνησης, τα ανθρώπινα δικαιώματα, η λειτουργία της ΕΕ και η διασύνδεσή της με τα κράτη μέλη και τις εθνικές έννομες τάξεις, οι σύγχρονες εξελίξεις στη Δημόσια Διοίκηση (εταιρική Διοίκηση, ηλεκτρονική διακυβέρνηση, νέοι μηχανισμοί λογοδοσίας και διαφάνειας κ.ο.κ.), ο σχεδιασμός και η άσκηση κοινωνικής πολιτικής με αναφορά σε σύγχρονες θεωρίες κοινωνικής και οικονομικής δικαιοσύνης κ.ο.κ. Το Πρόγραμμα θα είναι διαρθρωμένο με τρόπο ώστε να δίνει τη δυνατότητα στους φοιτητές να εξειδικεύθουν στους τομείς τους ιδιαίτερου ενδιαφέροντός τους, αφού όμως θα έχουν προηγουμένως αφομοιώσει τις γενικές κατευθύνσεις της διεπιστημονικότητας και της μεθοδικής έρευνας, καθώς και τις βασικές γνώσεις γύρω από τα καίρια μεγέθη του Δημοσίου Δικαίου και της Πολιτικής Θεωρίας. Τρίτος ειδικός στόχος του Προγράμματος είναι η συστηματική καλλιέργεια της δι-επιστημονικότητας, με αποφυγή παρεξηγημένων αντιλήψεων γύρω από το θέμα, και ιδίως με αποφυγή, από τη μια πλευρά, της ακραίας θέσης περί πλήρους ανεξαρτησίας της Νομικής Επιστήμης από τις Πολιτικές Επιστήμες και, από την άλλη πλευρά, της εξίσου ακραίας θέσης που αδυνατεί να διακρίνει τις μεθοδολογικές και ουσιαστικές ιδιαιτερότητες των γνωστικών πεδίων. Το Πρόγραμμα φιλοδοξεί να αποτελέσει, μεταξύ άλλων, «εργαστήρι» και πεδίο ανάπτυξης μίας συγκροτημένης διεπιστημονικής νοοτροπίας, μέσα από τον εντοπισμό του πολυσύνθετου χαρακτήρα των προβλημάτων του χώρου, αλλά και μέσα από την προσεκτική οριοθέτηση των διαφορετικών γνωστικών και μεθοδολογικών προσεγγίσεων της νομικής επιστήμης και των πολιτικών επιστημών αντίστοιχα. Απώτερος στόχος είναι να παρασχεθούν στους ενδιαφερόμενους τα εφόδια για εκπόνηση διδακτορικής έρευνας και διατριβής, έτσι ώστε να ενισχυθεί και ο προσανατολισμός των μελών των δύο Τμημάτων στην ανάγκη δημοσιεύσεων σε ξενόγλωσσα περιοδικά και επιθεωρήσεις. Career Prospects: Όπως αναφέρθηκε, το Πρόγραμμα απευθύνεται σε κατόχους πτυχίων Νομικής, Πολιτικών Επιστημών ή/και Δημόσιας Διοίκησης, Διεθνών ή/και Ευρωπαϊκών Σπουδών, Διεθνών Σχέσεων, και άλλων συναφών τίτλων σπουδών, οι οποίοι επιδιώκουν να αποκτήσουν επιπρόσθετα προσόντα που θα τους βοηθήσουν στην εργοδότηση ή και καλύτερη απόδοσή τους σε πλήθος τομέων και επαγγελματικών δραστηριοτήτων, μεταξύ άλλων στη Δημόσια Υπηρεσία και σε διάφορους κρατικούς ή ημι-κρατικούς οργανισμούς, σε διεθνείς οργανισμούς, όπως ενδεικτικά η Ευρωπαϊκή Ένωση, ο ΟΗΕ, και το Συμβούλιο της Ευρώπης, σε Μη-Κυβερνητικές Οργανισμούς διεθνούς ή εθνικής εμβέλειας, στο διπλωματικό σώμα και σε πρεσβείες ή άλλες υπηρεσίες και οργανισμούς που ενεργοποιούνται στο πεδίο των διακρατικών σχέσεων, καθώς σε όλο το φάσμα δραστηριοτήτων που συνδέονται με την πρακτική άσκηση της νομικής επιστήμης (δικηγόροι, νομικοί σύμβουλοι, δικαστές κ.λπ.) Η ανάγκη για διεύρυνση της γνώσης και των ικανοτήτων των ατόμων αυτών είναι δεδομένη και η ζήτηση για μια τέτοια δυνατότητα είναι εμφανής. Από την άλλη, η προσφορά και οι επιλογές των ενδιαφερομένων είναι αρκετά περιορισμένες. Στην Κύπρο δεν υπάρχει επί του παρόντος προσφορά σε Μεταπτυχιακά Προγράμματα της γνωστικής ενότητας Δημοσίου Δικαίου & Πολιτικών Επιστημών, ενώ το προτεινόμενο Πρόγραμμα θα μπορεί να επιλεγεί και από αποφοίτους των Ελληνικών Πανεπιστημίων, οι οποίοι επιδιώκουν μεταπτυχιακή μόρφωση και κατάρτιση σε αυτά τα πεδία ειδικού ενδιαφέροντος. Η ανάπτυξη σε μεταπτυχιακό επίπεδο των σπουδών και της πανεπιστημιακής έρευνας στα γνωστικά πεδία που καλύπτει το Πρόγραμμα θα προσδώσει νέες δυνατότητες στα άτομα που θα προσφέρουν τις υπηρεσίες τους στους προαναφερθέντες κρίσιμους τομείς και θα βελτιώσει ως εκ τούτου το συνολικό επίπεδο γνώσης και διαχείρισης ζητημάτων, αυξάνοντας τα συναφή οφέλη για το κοινωνικό σύνολο. Access to Further Studies: Οι απόφοιτοι του Προγράμματος αυτού θα είναι σε θέση να επιδιώξουν σπουδές διδακτορικού επιπέδου σε κάποιο από τα γνωστικά πεδία που συγκροτούν τη γνωστική ενότητα του Προγράμματος [-]
