The quality of our education is a mirror image of our faculty. The faculty and staff of the American College take a personal interest in each student’s success. Working together, faculty members and students create and nurture a community that fosters mutual trust and respect through formal and informal interaction. Some of the American College professors are nationally recognized names in the business environment as lecturers and consultants. Because they continue to work actively in the marketplace, they bring actual business experience and knowledge to the classrooms. Faculty advisors are available to work personally with students toward the achievement of their educational and career goals.
The flexibilityand diversity of our programs attracts students of all ages from every background and from many different countries. Our programs of study are reviewed regularly so that they meet our students’ needs and the needs of society in general.
Furthermore, the College is able to take a flexible and sympathetic approach to applications and potential candidates are invited to contact the Office of Admissions in advance to discuss any special circumstances related to their application.
Lively International Community
The American College has a lively and tolerant international community. International students from countries of Europe, the Middle East and Asia are warmly welcomed at the college. For many students, embarking on undergraduate or postgraduate study involves moving to Cyprus. As well as coping with academic work, international students will also have to adjust to a different way of life, an environment with a different culture and a different language. We ensure that we will make this transition as smooth as possible.
Our committed staff assist international students in all aspects of application, arrival, accommodation and general welfare. In addition, our staff has special responsibility for the general well-being of international students and for organizing social and cultural events involving students and members of the local community.
