Cyprus Maritime Academy (CyMA)
The Cyprus Maritime Academy, part of the University of Nicosia educational network, is the first of its kind in Cyprus and was founded in the academic year 2015-2016. The first cadets accepted into the Academy started their studies in the academic year 2016-2017 with great success.
The Academy’s aim is to develop and offer Competencies to the three main areas of the Marine Industry that are Nautical Science (Officer in Charge of Navigational Watch), Marine Engineering (Officer in Charge of Engineering Watch), and Marine Electro-technology (Electro-technical Officer).
The initiative to establish CyMA marks an important milestone for our island, and long anticipated from both academic and professional circles within the Marine and Maritime Industry in Cyprus; thus, aims at putting an end to the lack of technical Maritime education and training in Cyprus.
The courses offered at CyMA will be based at Intercollege Larnaca, which is ideally situated near the coastline of Larnaca. In addition, based on the collaborations set with partners of the industry, training will also take place at the heart of marine in Cyprus, Limassol. The CyMA aims to attract local, EU, as well as International cadets, therefore all subjects will be delivered in English, the international Maritime language.
In an effort to support the touristic shipping industry, and in collaboration with Seachefs ltd, CyMA and Intercollege offer Bachelor Degrees and Diplomas in the areas of Hospitality, Business Administration and Culinary Arts.
