Since the 1980s, higher education in Cyprus is constantly developing and various public and private institutions have taken measures to increase funding, research and interest for higher education in the country. Currently, 47% of the population of Cyprus aged 25–34 have received a higher education – one of the highest values in the EU.
Situated at the crossroads of Asia, Africa and Europe, Cyprus is influenced by many different cultures. This variety and internationality is reflected in the multicultural environment in higher-education institutions. More than 30% of the students enrolled in Cyprus universities come from abroad.
With a solid educational system, studying in Cyprus as an international student can be an outstanding opportunity to explore the world's richest histories while living in a welcoming community with a fantastic climate. Additionally, there are work opportunities for those who have ample skills. Though the competition for high-end employment can be a challenge, most look favourably on students who are able to offer something unique and intriguing. Employers are always looking for the most modern new hire.
The economy of Cyprus is classified by the World Bank as a high-income economy and was included by the International Monetary Fund in its list of advanced economies in 2001. Cyprus is focusing on advanced high-tech products for niche markets, with hope that these value-added activities could facilitate a resurgence of productivity and protect the island’s production heritage.
From being traditionally agricultural, Cyprus embraced industrial development in the 1960s and today specialises in the manufacture of mediumand high-technology products and semi-customised small-batch products. Cyprus’ key industrial products are: pharmaceuticals, food, beverages, chemicals, mineral products, machinery and equipment.
To continue to meet the rigors of the global market, Cypriot manufacturers are constantly following developments and technological advances in their field of activity, while the government continues to encourage manufacturing by improving the infrastructure and creating industrial parks and free industrial zones. Innovation is the pivotal driving force in this sector and could bring new opportunities and open new niche areas of industry. Also, due to the high cost of electricity production in Cyprus, the use and development of renewable energy is seeing a boost, with manufacturers striving to become self-sufficient and add value to the production process.
Cypriots are not always described simply as “Cypriots”. The word is often used together with the prefix “Greek” or “Turkish” in recognition of the two major ethnic groups that inhabit the island. The official languages of Cyprus are Greek, Turkish and English. Visitors have no trouble communicating in English due to the fact that Cyprus was a British colony from 1878 until 1960, and even today the British maintain military bases on the island. While you can get by this way, the ability and willingness to say even a few words in Greek will definitely be warmly welcomed and may "upgrade" your status from a simple touristas (or tourist) to a more honourable xenos, which means foreigner or traveller.
Cypriots are little more reserved initially in friendship than Americans and most Europeans, but tend to become closer friends once friendships do develop. Cypriots are typically more formal with their elders than other nationalities. Overall, Cypriots are extremely hospitable. It is considered polite to accept at least a little of what is being offered to you even if you do not want it. This applies most often to food and drink.
