Before coming to study abroad in North Cyprus, I had spent a lot of resources finding out fully funded programs abroad. This got me burned out! But, behold, I was blessed to attend an education fair in Hilton Hotel, Yaoundé, where I got to discover universities in Turkey and North Cyprus.
Today, I’ll share with you what exactly I was looking for and why I made the choice for North Cyprus.
– The Cost to Study Abroad
For most students, especially those coming from low income nations like me, the cost of study is the first check with many seeking for fully funded opportunities. I sought this definitely and found out universities in North Cyprus offer one of the cheapest study abroad international programs worldwide and for me, it was good news. Who wants to pay 6 to 10 times more for an education of equal quality? Tuition fees in North Cyprus universities are very affordable and so you can enjoy your study abroad experience without going bankrupt.
– Study Abroad International Student Scholarships
North Cypriot universities encourage study abroad programs by offering generous international students scholarships. So you get to study abroad cheaply and also with a scholarship. Wow, that was a bargain. I grasped this as I obtained 60% scholarship with a minimal amount to pay for a complete two years Master’s program.
– High Standard Education Programs
It’s obvious I was searching for low tuition and scholarship programs but I was not going to sacrifice the quality of education for them. Apart from high profiled lecturers dishing out knowledge, there is a friendly relationship between the professors and their students. The vast array of state of the art academic facilities, the campus environs and classrooms are very conducive for easy assimilation of lessons and so much more. To ice the cake, universities in TRNC are fully accredited by the relevant Higher Education Authorities in North Cyprus and Turkey (YODAK and YOK), with its programs and Diplomas also being recognized by UK NARIC and other international organizations.
I know right now, these points are related to yours and you’ll possibly be asking yourself the question: which university exactly did you chose in North Cyprus?
Since I want you to pursue your dreams without much stress by getting clarity from my experience, I’ll answer you.
I chose Cyprus Science University.
Yes! You heard me well; Cyprus Science University. (https://www.csu.edu.tr/en/home/)
Besides Cyprus Science University meeting my objectives, it offers a unique combination of learning and self-development. It is a dream come true, being an MBA student and getting the privilege to sharpen my skills as an Administration Assistant at the International Office. The lectures and tutorials are interesting and academically stimulating, and apply to real-world case studies, which is extremely useful.
The very international nature of the university has also been a major plus in both my learning of multiple cultures and making of new friends from different countries.
I can’t wait to have you join us and making your dreams and goals become a reality.
