World-class universities and research institutions, while few in number, play a catalytic role in advancing human affairs and welfare, economic growth, scientific progress, and cultural achievement.
While firmly anchored in the pursuit of excellence, the Cyprus Institute aspires to reach beyond the traditional models of research institutions and universities: it is a novel institution dedicated to the pursuit of excellence by addressing regional problems of global significance. As part of its educational mission it offers Doctoral Degrees to a very limited number of candidates, young scientists aspiring to become future leaders in academia and research.
The Cyprus Institute is approved by the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Cyprus to offer, the following Doctoral Programs of study in:
- Computational Sciences
- Digital Cultural Heritage
- Environment and Atmospheric Sciences
The Doctoral Programs of the Institute are highly exclusive: intensive, rigorous and very demanding. They are intended for those eager to shape and drive the international knowledge economy of tomorrow, those who share our vision that future peace and prosperity will be founded on social justice and enabled by science and technology.
A very limited number of applicants can expect to be admitted, those that are equipped for such a challenge and especially those that have also the drive to excel internationally in the fields of study offered.
The Doctoral candidates admitted can expect to become members of a vibrant, truly international research community operating from Cyprus and partnered with some of the leading Universities and Research Centers of the world. Research Assistantships and Fellowships will be awarded to the admitted candidates.
