Joint Degrees

Joint degrees provide a unique opportunity for students to study at more than one institution of higher education.  Students gain experience at world-renowned institutions and have the opportunity to experience life in more than one city. Doctoral students at The Cyprus Institute (CyI) have the option to pursue their PhD studies at CyI jointly with internationally recognized institutions with which CyI maintains agreements for joint degrees. Currently about one third of our students are enrolled in joint degrees.

Students enrolled in joint degrees must comply with admission requirements and regulations at both institutions.
