The Education system in Cyprus

 The Cyprus Government wishes to ensure that children from other EU countries continue their education while they are in Cyprus.

For that reason, children with other native languages who do not speak Greek can receive special lessons in the language so that they can go to a state school. The measures being implemented provide such children with intensive tuition in Greek to facilitate their gradual integration into school and also provide training for teachers to enable them to respond adequately to the teaching of pupils from other language backgrounds. In addition, training courses dealing with the cultures and languages of the countries of origin of the children will be provided in cooperation with those countries. 

More than 30 private secondary schools (Greek-language, English-language, French language and Russian-language) have been approved by the Ministry of Education and Culture. Attendance at these schools costs from £2 000 to £3 000 (EUR 3 500 to EUR 5 250) per year. 

There are also many childcare centres. 

Pre-school education

Pre-school education is offered by Greek-language state schools and private schools operating in other languages. It is provided for children aged from three years to five years and eight months. Attendance is voluntary. Legislation to make one year of pre school education compulsory is anticipated. Attendance at a private nursery school costs from £70 to £150 (EUR 120 to EUR 260) per child per month; the cost at the state schools is lower. There are also private and state baby nurseries for children up to three years of age. 

Primary education

Primary education is provided free of charge at state schools for children aged from five years and eight months to 11 years and eight months. Age is the only criterion for the entry of children into primary education. The school year is divided into three terms of three months, with attendance on five days of the week. The system of afternoon attendance is being extended to primary schools. There are also private English-language primary schools. 

Lower secondary education

Lower secondary education is provided free of charge for children from 11 years and eight months to 15 years of age. Age is the only criterion for the entry of children into lower secondary education. The school year is divided into three terms of three months, with attendance on five days of the week. There are also private English-language and French-language lower secondary schools. 

Upper secondary education

Upper secondary education is provided free of charge for children aged between 15 and 18 years of age. At this level, too, the school year is divided into three terms of three months, with five-day attendance. Pupils who wish to be trained in a technical occupation can attend a Technical School. There are also private English-language and French language upper secondary schools. 

Highest and higher education

Cyprus has the University of Cyprus, private colleges and schools and state training institutions such as the Higher Technical Institute, the Forestry College and the Higher Hotel Institute.
