Welcome to the 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’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 3 years of operation our newly graduated students, have managed already to be appointed and employed in well-known organisations and corporations not only in Cyprus but in Europe as well.

*The Institute of Professional Studies (IPS) falls under the umbrella of UCLan Cyprus IPS Limited. The IPS is a separate educational entity from UCLan Cyprus. Awards conferred by the Institute of Professional Studies are not awards from UCLan Cyprus nor UCLan UK.’

Following the trend of the graduate recruitment market, the IPS designs all of its programmes based on Industry needs. In many sectors, recruiters are looking for ‘work-ready’ personnel with clear evidence of job specific skills. 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.

Over 90% of the Welding School Graduates are employed in local and international companies!

The Institute of Professional Studies at UCLan Cyprus currently operates three Schools, the Energy School, the Welding School and the Agriculture School. The Energy School was established along with the Institute back in 2013, aiming to produce well trained and qualified personnel able to enter technical roles within the Oil & Gas/Petrochemical Industry in Cyprus and abroad. The Agriculture School was founded in 2014 and it is the first and only complete Agriculture School in the country. Recently updated, the new programmes of the School expand to specialised fields of horticulture and animal husbandry. The Welding School started its operations through the Energy School and was separated after the great success of the graduates in achieving employment in local and international companies. The IPS Welding School is now running new courses based on the needs of the modern industry including training for applications in the Oil & Gas Industry, the Construction Industry, the Process Industry etc.

The Institute of Professional Studies emphasizes in the Professional Development of its students. The IPS Professional Development Team invested in building a strong network of cooperation and partnerships with International Training and Certification Bodies in order to ensure the enhancement of the employability of the students. Special focus has been given in providing students with the skills, training, knowledge and expertise that will equip them to be competitive in the labour market. Professional Certifications offered include the International Qualification Certification for Welders by TUV Austria, the International Offshore Safety Training and Certification by OPITO and the Professional ACCA Certification.

The Institute of Professional Studies supports Lifelong Learning and tries to contribute to the pursuit of knowledge through the Department of Continuing Education. In this context, the IPS offers a number of credit and non-credit granting Courses and Seminars for people in search of expanding their knowledge for either personal or professional reasons.
