Entry requirements for Cyprus

Our entry requirements will vary depending on your level of study, the course you are interested in and your English language proficiency.

Undergraduate courses

We will consider students who hold the Apolytirion of Lykelon (School Leaving Certificate), with a grade of 17.5/20 in the Apolytirion +BB at A level or above, although this will be decided upon by the admissions tutor at the time of application.

Students who have taken GCE A Level examinations and the International Baccalaureate (IB) will also be considered for entrance to undergraduate courses.

Alternatively, the successful completion of one or more years of undergraduate study at a recognised Cypriot university may also be considered as acceptable for entry on to our undergraduate degree courses.

Postgraduate taught courses

Applicants who have successfully completed a four year Ptychio or a bachelor’s degree (post-2001) from a recognised Cypriot institution will be considered.

As a general guideline, we will consider applicants with a grade in the region of 7.5 or above, although this will be decided upon by the admissions tutor at the time of application.

Postgraduate research courses

There are a number of possible entry routes to postgraduate research courses at Cardiff University.

We will consider applicants who have successfully completed a master's from a recognised Cypriot institution.

In some cases, we will consider applicants who only have a bachelor's degree, although applicants may be required to complete a master's course at Cardiff University prior to embarking upon PhD studies.

English language

A relevant English language qualification is also required — normally a minimum of 6.5 overall in IELTS, however, this may vary from course to course.

In some cases, it may be possible to consider the overall grade in the English language element of the Apolytirion of Lykelon or evidence of continued use of the English language since High School.
