INSTITUTE OF PROFESSIONAL STUDIES
AT UCLAN CYPRUS
The Institute of Professional Studies at UCLan Cyprus is a model educational institution, established in 2013, to serve as a hub that bridges education with industry, by combining academic knowledge with technical training.
The Institute of Professional Studies is committed to provide students, not only with the necessary knowledge, but also with the technical skills and competences, the abilities and the experiences that will allow them to pursue a career in the local and the international market in their field of expertise.
Driven by our ultimate goal – the proper professional development of our students – our efforts have primarily been focused on creating a group of Instructors comprised by experienced academics in higher technical education as well as specialised and highly qualified professionals from the local and international industry, aiming to transfer both the knowledge and experience to the students during their studies.
Most importantly, the Institute has been actively working on the creation of a network with multinational organizations and certification bodies with a long presence in the local and international industry. All partnerships of the Institute are intended to both ensure the quality of education provided to students and to certify their skills by internationally recognized organizations.
The Institute’s priority towards its students is to provide them with the skills, training, knowledge and expertise that will equip them to be competitive in the labour market. Following just 2 years of operation our newly graduated students, just in November 2015, have managed already to be appointed and employed in well-known organisations and corporations not only in Cyprus but in Europe as well.
