    The first University in Cyprus rated by QS TOP UNIVERSITIES (QS StarsTM)

  • European University Cyprus placed among the best institutions in the world

    In 2015 European University Cyprus secured a momentous distinction following the assessment by QS TOP UNIVERSITIES, the independent and most authoritative university-rating tool globally.

    European University Cyprus is the first University in Cyprus and Greece to be rated by QS TOP UNIVERSITIES (QS Stars), which ranks many of the most prestigious universities in the United States, Canada and Europe, placing it among the top universities in the world on the basis of its performance across several fields.

    QS Stars University Rating is used by interested parties and prospective students internationally to get a wider, but also more comprehensive, picture of an institution’s qualities, looking at its administrative and academic standing assessing every aspect of a university’s performance from teaching and the employability of its graduates to its facilities and social responsibility.

    The QS Stars University Rating evaluates an institution against 50 different indicators and awards universities between one and five stars in a range of fields.

    European University Cyprus has been assessed with the highest distinction of 5-Stars in Teaching, Facilities, Inclusiveness, Social Responsibility and Internationalisation. Its 4-Star distinction in the field of Employability is also considered a remarkable success, a result of the close association of its academic programs to the job market.
