Intercollege is an independent, coeducational, equal opportunity institution of higher education, combining the best elements in western education, quality standards and an international philosophy with genuine care for its students.
Located in Limassol, Nicosia and Larnaca, Intercollege has become a global education centre offering a range of academic, professional and vocational programmes of study.
International in philosophy (the vast majority of its programmes are offered in English), the College hosts students from all over the world, in a multicultural learning environment, cultivating critical thinking and lifelong skills, but also promoting friendship, cooperation and understanding. Intercollege offers students the opportunities to become involved in a whole range of activities including student clubs, sports, public lectures and seminars and thereby to grow and develop as persons. The end result of this entire experience is graduates who are well prepared for successful careers, but also for further study.
Relationship to University of Nicosia
A central feature of Intercollege’s identity is its special relationship to the University of Nicosia, a relationship that allows its students to have access to the University’s library, learning and recreational resources, but more importantly perhaps, to continue their studies, if they wish, in a quality University in which they will be particularly welcome.
Apart from the University of Nicosia, Intercollege maintains close links with a number of European and American universities, giving our students various opportunities for transfer. Recently it has made a series of franchise agreements with British Universities and is now in a position to deliver some of their undergraduate and graduate programmes in Cyprus.
Intercollege is international in philosophy, development and outlook. Conscious of its unique location at the crossroads of three continents, the College strives to enhance opportunities for education and understanding between people of different cultures. Intercollege aims to promote both high academic standards and high principles of character. Students are encouraged to acquire facts and competencies in various skills, as well as to develop cultural awareness, social responsibility and personal integrity.
Fostering student-teacher involvement at Intercollege, the faculty are encouraged to blend academic knowledge with professional experience inside the classroom and to emphasise a personalised approach to education. Through close interaction with faculty and staff, students are helped to examine their goals, abilities and options for the future.
The College admission policy accommodates students with varied academic abilities and aptitudes provided that they achieve the minimum programme requirements to graduate.
Intercollege’s programmes are modelled on American and European higher education. The College is committed to maintaining standards which comply with those of International higher education in order to provide students with diverse transfer opportunities for further study.
