1. GENERAL ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
The criteria for admission have been prepared to enable the Admissions Office to select students who have potential to do college-level work and to place students in courses and programs appropriate to the student's academic preparation, in an effort to help them successfully realize their academic potential.
The students come from many different countries and bring with them a wide range of academic disciplines, experiences, special interests, talents and cultural heritages. The Admissions Office aims to form a student body, which will give the opportunity to each student to share education and grow in experience as a member of an international community.
In general, all applicants must have completed a secondary (high) school education or the equivalent of twelve years of schooling to be considered for admission. The College recognizes a strong academic performance at high school level as the primary determinant for college level success.
Any person who intends to register for a program/course at the College must first be admitted to the College. Application forms and the most current information about admission requirements can be obtained from the Admissions Office.
Minimum Admission requirements for all programs:
A High School leaving certificate or equivalent qualification is a necessary entry requirement. In the case of overseas applicants their secondary/high school credentials should be sufficient to allow them to apply for admission to post secondary (higher) educational establishments of their home country.
Very good knowledge of the English Language with a score of 6.0 in IELTS or 550 in TOEFL or 213 TOEFL Computer Based, or evidence of English Proficiency equivalent to the above. Candidates who do not meet the English language criteria are required to take Foundation Courses in English.

The director of Admissions is responsible for the evaluation of all applications for admission to the College.
The College has accepted among its responsibilities a commitment to international students by providing opportunities to citizens from other countries to study at the College. The College considers the admission of qualified students from other countries a part of its educational program. International students enrich the life of the College and contribute to the education and personal growth of Cypriot students.
