Northern Cyprus is not only an amazing place to live or vacation, with a pleasant Mediterranean climate and more than 300 sunny days a year, it is also a country of great opportunities for the development of a child as a person.

What is the education system in Northern Cyprus?

The education system in the TRNC includes 4 levels:

  • pre-school education (for children from 3 to 6 years old);
  • primary education (for children from 7 to 11 years old);
  • secondary education (for 12-15 years old and 15-17 years old);
  • higher education (for 18+).

What is education in schools?

There are both private and public schools in Northern Cyprus. Education in a public school is absolutely free, provided that you have received a TRNC residence permit.

Private schools and colleges are paid, the price for the academic year is formed depending on the educational institution and the age of the student. Schools teach subjects such as robotics, ecology, foreign languages ​​(usually 2-3) and even horse riding. A special bias is made in English, because it is in English that many entrance exams are held at the university and, subsequently, the training itself. The educational process and teaching standards in both public and private schools are strictly controlled by the state. After graduation, children are absolutely ready to enter any university in Europe or Northern Cyprus.

How to get higher education?

Higher education in Cyprus can be obtained at local state universities, branches of state universities in Turkey and private universities. Students can earn an associate's degree (2 years), a bachelor's degree (4 years), a master's degree (1-2 years), or a doctoral degree (2-5 years). At universities, you can study in such areas as art, medicine, finance, shipping and more. The pricing policy for training is also attractive and depends on the chosen direction of study. Also, students have wide prospects in the form of continuing their studies at universities in England, the USA, Singapore, Great Britain and other countries of the world after only a year of study at a local university.
