About OUC

As of the academic year 2011-2012, the Open University of Cyprus (OUC), the country’s second state university, has an enrolment of over 2500 students and has already developed ten, dynamic Study Courses. Aiming to become an attractive, regional, educational institution, the Open University of Cyprus actively participates in university networks and international organisations.  This initiative encourages the exchange of views on higher education and research at the European and international level. By participating in these networks, OUC promotes policy positions relating to lifelong learning and the development of distance education and establishes partnerships for the exchange of academic staff, administrative personnel and students with other universities, members of the networks.
