2021 Ranking of Cyprus Universities

Which universities in Cyprus are the most popular? Topuniversitieslist attempts to address this issue by releasing the 2021 Cypriot University Ranking, which includes 50 higher-education institutions in Cyprus that fulfill the Topuniversitieslist selection criteria:

being chartered, registered, or certified by the relevant Cypriot higher education-related body, and providing at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees) in a conventional, face-to-face, non-distance education style.

The Topuniversitieslist League Table and University Ranking of 50 Universities in Cyprus can be found here.
