Cyprus offers excellent opportunities for getting high quality education. There are private English schools, providing a full cycle of primary and secondary education in all major cities of Cyprus.
Education in Cyprus is overseen by the Ministry of Education and Culture. The education system is divided into pre-primary education (ages 3–6), primary education (ages 6–12), secondary education (ages 12–18) and higher education (ages 18+). Full-time education is compulsory for all children aged between 5 and 15. State-provided schooling including higher education is paid for by taxes.
The modern system of higher education in Cyprus has its own unique features and characteristics. Universities are following the European model of education. In the republic of Cyprus there are three state Universities and four privately owned Universities, plus it is an important fact to mention that there are also branches of two famous UK Universities in the Larnaca District.
