Frederick University is an energetic and vibrant private university operating in the Republic of Cyprus. Although the establishment of the University is relatively recent, the organisation has a long history of more than 40 years in higher education. Frederick University functions from two locations; one in Nicosia, the capital city of Cyprus, and another in Limassol, the second largest city and main port of the island. Both campuses provide modern facilities designed to meet the academic, research, social and recreational needs of the University community that, in spite of the growing number of students and faculty, remains focused on the individual, its needs and aspirations.
The mission of Frederick University is the provision of learning opportunities through teaching and research in the areas of science, technology, literature, and the arts, as well as a systematic contribution to the wider social context. The education offered is of high quality and leads to recognized qualifications that ensure the University’s graduates professional career and advancement in Cyprus and abroad. With its dedication to academic excellence, provision of innovative and high-quality programs of study and active research, Frederick University is an ideal destination for young people interested in obtaining the knowledge, skills and free thinking needed to address the challenges of the modern world.
Students need to strike a balance between their academic and social involvement. The Counseling Center supports students to meet this need through participation in student clubs and societies, which give students the opportunity to participate in many social and cultural activities. Getting involved is a good way for students to meet new friends and make the most of their stay as part of the Frederick University community. Participation in clubs and societies exposes students to new life experiences, helps them develop valuable leadership skills and abilities and provides opportunities for them to express creativity and talent.
The University considers athletics as an integral part of the educational process.
