Therefore, at the beginning of each semester, new Cypriot and international students participate in one of the orientation seminars.
Each orientation seminar concludes with a tour of all College facilities. Particular attention is given to the College library, where students are introduced to the variety of services it has to offer. Orientation seminars and tours run before the start of each semester and during the first few weeks of each semester.

Classes and studying are very important to students but students need to strike a balance between their academic and social involvement.
A great way to do this is through student clubs and societies. College administration staff, in cooperation with the Students’ Union, assist with the organization of various clubs.
Some of the clubs on campus are the following: Dancing Club, Singing Club, Journalist Club, Chess Club, Photography Club, Events Club, Health Club, Movie Club, Foosball Club and Cyprus Tour Club.
Most of our programs are accredited by the Cyprus Accreditation Council. This confirms the status and standard of the College’s programs of study within Cyprus and abroad, and is indicative of the quality and recognition maintained by the College.
