Why should international students finish their studies in Cyprus? What does Cyprus present to foreign students those other countries do not and what is the cost of living in this country?

Average Tuition Cost
What type of tuition cost will students need to plan for when they are creating a school budget? In Cyprus, foreign students can expect to pay for an undergraduate degree, a maximum of 13,000 EUR or a low minimum of 3,000 EUR. The reason there is such a vast difference is because the universities in Cyprus decide how much tuition will cost per academic year.
There is a fine line between buying groceries to cook at home, or eating out at restaurants. And in Cyprus the average living cost for rent and daily needs is between 300-800 EUR. However, if a student decides to eat at restaurant multiple times a week, they can expect their monthly living cost to rise to 1,200 EUR.
In Cyprus, the living cost is greatly affected by how an individual decides how to live. Like we mentioned above, to stay within budget or even under 400 EUR. An individual would need to primarily cook their dinners at home, rather than going out and ordering takeout.
Languages Spoken in Cyprus
The two main languages spoken in the country are Turkish and Greek. However, the best way to understand the diverse layout of Cyprus, will break it down. Cyprus as an island is divided into two known sections, one being the Cypriot Turks and the Greek Cypriots. The Cypriot Turks live in the north part of the country, while the Greek Cypriots live in the southern part of Cyprus. Nearly 3% of the population happen to speak Armenian and Arabic, and most of these also speak Greek. Cyprus is represented as a multicultural place, but it would be highly beneficial if an international student learns the basic routes of Greek before moving there.
