Message from the President

George ChristophidesWorld-class universities and research institutions, while small 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 graduate degrees exclusively to a limited number of young scientists aspiring to become future leaders in academia and research.

The Cyprus Institute is approved by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sport and Youth of the Republic of Cyprus to offer, the following programs of study:

Digital Cultural Heritage, MSc
Environmental Sciences MSc/MPhil
Simulation and Data Science, MSc
Computational Sciences, PhD
Energy, Environment and Atmospheric Sciences, PhD 
Science and Technology in Cultural Heritage, PhD 


The degree 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 is founded on social justice and enabled by science and technology.

A 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 students 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. Generous financial aid opportunities are available for competitive applicants.

Prof. George Christophides
President of The Cyprus Institute
