The institution was founded by Ioannis Gregoriou in 1961 under the name Cyprus College, to provide students with well-rounded programs of study combining academic and practical knowledge. The College became European University Cyprus in 2007, following a change in the law to allow the operation of private universities in Cyprus. All Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD Programs have been approved by the Accreditation Committee of Private Universities of the Ministry of Education and Culture and are recognized worldwide.
European University Cyprus has six schools: the School of Arts and Education Sciences, the School of Business Administration, the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, the School of Sciences, the School of Law and the School of Medicine.
The Faculty of Pharmacy has been established in 2014 and operates under the School of Sciences, Department of Life Sciences. We offer a five-year BSc program in Pharmacy. Our students have the opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge in basic subjects such as Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Human Anatomy and Physiology as well as engage in the full range of Pharmaceutical Sciences including Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Analysis and Technology, Pharmacognosy, Pharmacology and Toxicology. The programme is designed on the basis of EU educational standards and offers students a sound foundation for skills required in the Pharmacy profession. Upon completion of the degree, graduates may also continue their studies in relevant sectors such as Public Health and Medicine.
