Graduate studies at the Cyprus Institute Graduate School

The Cyprus Institute (CyI) is a world-class, non-profit research and educational institution with a strong scientific and technological orientation. It is a regional centre of excellence, addressing issues of regional interest but of global significance, with an emphasis on cross-disciplinary research and international collaborations.

CyI is comprised of three specialised multidisciplinary research centres, developed in partnership with leading international institutions in their respective thematic areas:


The Energy, Environment and Water Research Centre addresses science, technology, economic and policy issues related to major challenges in the energy, environment, climate and water sectors for Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean.  It was established in cooperation with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).


The Science and Technology in Archaeology and Culture Research Centre conducts research on archaeology and cultural heritage using methods from the natural, material and computational sciences. It was established in cooperation with the Centre de Recherche et de Restauration des Musées de France (C2RMF)


The Computation-based Science and Technology Research Centre addresses complex research problems in science, engineering and the humanities, by applying advanced computational and data methodologies. It was established in cooperation with the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign and its National Centre for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA).


The Graduate School is the educational arm of The Cyprus Institute. It is an accredited, degree-granting institution of higher education recognised internationally.

Established in 2010, the Graduate School focuses on postgraduate level education.  It maintains a small number of students that are fully embedded in the research activities of the institute.  This provides students with the opportunity to acquire hands-on training in the use of the latest methods and techniques, have access to state-of-the-art infrastructure and carry out research with internationally recognised research teams. The graduate school provides an educational environment where excellence in education and research are fostered through interdisciplinary collaborations addressing regional problems of global significance. The school aspires to educate future leaders in academia and research.  Alumni of our programs already hold positions in academia and industry, both in Cyprus and internationally.


The portfolio consists exclusively of graduate degree programmes at both Master’s and Doctoral level:




The portfolio also includes a diverse set of training opportunities such as internships, winter/summer schools, special seminars and workshops, most of which are also open to people from other institutions.

The Cyprus Institute is a champion in competitive research, attracting an impressive number of European projects and other competitive grants; in the first three years of Horizon 2020, The Cyprus Institute attracted eight times more funding than the European average (per researcher).

These research projects co-funded a number of state-of-the-art facilities, many of which are unique on a national and regional level. Our students have access to these facilities throughout the duration of their graduate research.

Moreover, many of its students are offered research assistantships immersing them in research teams which provides them research project experience alongside their theoretical education.

Finally, students have the opportunity to work alongside exceptional faculty and world leading research teams that are attracted to The Cyprus Institute due to its intensive research focus and Cyprus’s unique geographical position that give access to an area abundant with research challenges and opportunities.


The Graduate School maintains a small number of hand-picked students, which results in a low student-faculty- ratio. This allows for a high degree of individual focus in research, personal guidance, mentoring and career coaching resulting in successful placements.


The School values the strengths that a multicultural environment provides so it has made it a priority to promote diversity, hence: 47% of  students and 65% of our faculty are international. English is the medium of instruction and communication.


Through the extensive research collaboration and partnerships network students have the option to pursue their PhD studies at the Cyprus Institute Graduate School jointly with internationally recognized institutions with which the institute maintains agreements for joint degrees such as the University of Illinois, the University of Paris-Saclay, RWTH Aachen University, and other prestigious institutions.
