UNYP strongly believes in the value of international education. As a member of the Erasmus+ program, UNYP is able to provide its students with the opportunity to study within their field at partner institutions throughout Europe.
The European Commission, which facilitates the Erasmus+ program, also provides support mechanisms for students participating in the Erasmus+ program, such as free language training and cost-of-living support.
UNYP strongly encourages all of its students to explore the possibility of studying abroad. Information on the Erasmus+ program for UNYP students is provided below:
Republic of Cyprus
All applicants are expected to meet the following requirements:
During your exchange, you are expected to maintain a full-time enrollment at the host institution and comply with the rules and regulations (academic, codes of conduct, financial) of the host institution.
The Center for Global Engagement will evaluate each Outbound Erasmus/Exchange application according to the criteria below. Upon submission, your application will be evaluated and, based on your preferences and on the points you earn, we will place you to one of the universities from your preference list.
As there are limited spots at each partner university every year, and as many students are applying to the same universities, spots at preferred universities will be awarded to students who score the highest on the scale below.
Once you are placed at a university from your preference list, the CGE department will contact you to confirm that you would like to move forward with your placement.
This procedure will be valid from the selection process for Fall 2023 semester. We will be accepting applications from the beginning of the Spring 2023 semester.
Application Evaluation Rubric
We ask students to list three universities they would be happy to study abroad at. This is recommended as we have limited places at each partner university. When processing your application we will aim to give you the first university listed, however, depending on demand, we may have allocate you to any of the universities you have listed. Therefore, we ask student to have an equal interest in all of them.

Erasmus+ tries to make the study abroad experience as accessible as possible. That’s why certain students with special needs can access additional financial support under the European Special Needs Support Programme. Students with physical, mental or health-related conditions can use this support to improve their experience. Contact CGE for more information and how to proceed.
Low-income students and participants with special dietary restrictions can also receive additional financial support of 250 EUR. For more information contact CGE.
