The Language Centre constitutes a separate entity of the University of Cyprus, whose mission focuses on offering general or specialized courses in a variety of languages. In particular, it offers courses in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Turkish, Russian, Chinese (in collaboration with the Confucius Institute) as well as sign language.
Language instruction, both in European and non-European languages, is aligned with the language levels defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages of the Council of Europe (CEFR). The courses are offered to the undergraduate students of the University of Cyprus free of charge. Students can register, depending on their level, in any language course from a beginner to an advanced level, either as compulsory or elective or as free electives, depending on their departmental program requirements, and receive the corresponding ECTS credits.
In addition to the University of Cyprus students, the Language Centre also addresses the general public of the Cypriot society by offering foreign language programs aiming at the increase of employment opportunities within the context of lifelong learning and education.
The Language Centre employs highly experienced and scientifically-trained teaching staff who utilize contemporary technologies and adopt student-centered teaching approaches with experiential and communicative learning methodologies. Their mission is to help students understand how to use a foreign language according to their needs and experiences, by employing a range of teaching techniques.
Finally, the Language Centre cultivates its students’ linguistic self-confidence in order to lead them to language fluency. Therefore, our vision is to help strengthen students’ language skills as a key element of success in a competitive, modern, dynamic and multicultural society.
