  3.  Copy of Secondary and Senior Secondary High School Graduation Certificates and Mark Sheets (with a minimum of 50% overall average mark at Senior Secondary).

As soon as the Office of Admissions receives the documents above and the application for admission fee and provided that the applicant satisfies the admission requirements, the Office of Admissions will send to the applicant a Certificate of Admission along with an Acceptance of Terms and Conditions of Study form.

STEP 2 – SENDING THE DOCUMENTS REQUIRED FOR VISA APPLICATION

After the applicant receives the Certificate of Admission he/she should send the following via courier service (e.g. DHL, FedEx) to the Office of Admissions. Prior to sending the following via courier service, we recommend that you scan and email them to admissions@ac.ac.cy so that we can confirm that everything is completed correctly before sending them via courier.

  1. Attested copies of Secondary and Senior Secondary High School Graduation Certificates and Mark Sheets (with a minimum of 50% overall average mark at Senior Secondary). Postgraduate applicants do not need to have the minimum of 50% at Senior Secondary as long as they have a minimum of 40% overall average mark at their Bachelor Degree. If the student cannot attest the copies of his/her school documents he/she will need to send the attested original documents.
  2. Attested copies of the Bachelor Degree Certificate and Mark Sheet (applicable only for postgraduate applicants e.g. MBA). If the student cannot attest the copies of his/her academic documents he/she will need to send the attested original documents.
  3. Attested copies of the English Language Certificate (If the student cannot attest the copies, he/she will need to send the attested original documents).
  4. Attested original Medical Examinations report issued no more than 4 months before the application deadline which proves that the student is free from Tuberculosis, Hepatitis B and C, Syphilis and HIV/AIDS. All original medical examination results must be attached. Medical examinations can only be done by a governmental medical center (e.g. government hospital). The contact details of the medical center that issued the report must be shown on the report.
  5. Attested original No-Criminal Record Certificate issued by the local police or Ministry of Home Affairs stating that the applicant has no criminal record. The Certificate must be issued no more than 6 months before the application deadline. In case there is a validity or expiry date written on it, the Certificate should be valid until the date classes commence.
  6. Attested original Bank Letter stating that the student’s sponsor has sufficient funds to finance the student’s stay and studies in Cyprus. The student’s name, sponsor’s name and their relationship should appear clearly on the letter. The sponsor can only be the father, mother or a first degree relative of the applicant. This must be issued no more than six (6) months before the application deadline. If neither the Passport nor the No-Criminal Record Certificate state the relationship between the student and the sponsor then a Certificate of Relationship or an Affidavit or other official document issued by the Police or other official authority stating the relationship between the student and the sponsor must accompany the bank letter. Please note, this document must also be fully attested. The contact details of the bank that issued the letter must be clearly shown on the letter.
  7. Attested original Bank Statement showing that the student’s sponsor maintains a balance of at least €7.000 or the equivalent amount in local currency. This statement must be issued no earlier than one month before the application deadline.
  8. One passport size photograph with the applicant’s name written on the back.

Attestation of documents and documents issued in a language other than English

Documents should be attested by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the student’s home country and then sent for attestation to a host country where both Cyprus and the student’s country have an Embassy/Consulate/High commission. To find out if a country has a Cyprus Embassy/Consulate/High commission visit the Cyprus Ministry of Foreign Affairs website (www.mfa.gov.cy / Cyprus in the world / Embassies and Consulates by Country and select a country to see if there is a Cyprus Embassy/Consulate/High commission) or contact our Admissions Department. The documents should then be attested by the Embassy/Consulate/High commission of the student’s country, then by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the host country and finally by the Cyprus Embassy/Consulate/High Commission.

Additionally, the bank letter and bank statement needs to be attested by a notary public prior to the above attestations (please note: every page of the bank statement needs to be fully attested, not just the last page).

If any of the required documents are issued in a language other than English then an attested original English language official translation must be attached (the contact details of the translator must be shown). The translation must be attested in the same way as explained above.

As soon as the College receives all required documents above (correctly completed and attested), it will apply to the Cyprus Migration Department for the student’s visa. Have in mind that the above may need (depending on the country from which they are sent) 4 to 5 working days to arrive via a courier service.

STEP 3 – PAYMENT AND SENDING OF VISA

Once requested, the student should forward a payment to the College according to the Tuition & Other Fees leaflet, to enable the visa to be issued. As soon as his/her visa is issued, the College sends to the student a copy of his/her paper visa.
