University of Central Lancashire - Cyprus


The best of both worlds

The University of Central Lancashire, Cyprus (UCLan Cyprus), is located in Larnaka, and it is now in its ninth year of operation. UCLan Cyprus is the first Branch Campus of the University of Central Lancashire and at the same time a fully licensed University in Cyprus. A unique and innovative model
of a Cypriot and British University Educational Experience, accredited by the UK Quality Assurance Agency and the Cyprus Agency of Quality Assurance and Accreditation in Higher Education (CYQAA) respectively.

Built on strong academic foundations, the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan UK), our mother University, counts more than 190 years of history and is considered among the top 6.5% of all worldwide Universities by the Centre for World University Rankings (CWUR) 2020/21.

UCLan Cyprus operates under the academic umbrella of UCLan UK, and further to the latest political changes of the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union (BREXIT), it is considered a unique University, bridging the UK and Europe in terms of research, academic standards, student experience and student exchange.

The completion of studies at UCLan Cyprus will result in a Double Degree (two certificates) from the two Universities, UCLan UK and UCLan Cyprus recognised not only in Cyprus and UK but also across Europe and beyond.

Our Vision

The strategic vision of UCLan Cyprus is to build a leading, modern university with a global reach at the crossroads of three continents (Europe, Asia, and Africa), providing Undergraduate and Postgraduate Higher Education. UCLan Cyprus will be a University recognized for its commitment to the finest student University experience, outstanding research, innovative learning and valuable engagement with industry and communities within Cyprus, the Eastern Mediterranean, the Middle East and further afield.
