Our goal is for Cyprus to become an upgraded and quality educational and research center, President Nikos Christodoulides said on Monday, addressing the graduation ceremony of the School of Business Administration of the University of Nicosia.
He announced that very soon the government will begin a public consultation with universities with the aim of forming a strategy to this end, before the end of 2023, in order to achieve the common goals.
The President said that Ministers of Education, Interior, Labor and Foreign Affairs have already been informed about a working document prepared by the Presidency.
He said that this document provides for the further strengthening of the quality of higher education by giving more opportunities to students who choose to study in Cyprus, giving more incentives to universities based on indicators of quality.
Christodoulides also said that the government being fully aware of the great importance that quality higher education has for our country, is taking targeted measures, with the ultimate goal of turning our country into a quality, regional and international, educational center. He noted that quality of studies is the key to being able to develop and emerge as a reliable educational center.
He congratulated the students who graduated last night and praised the University of Nicosia for the very important work carried out.
