Eastern Mediterranean University Rector Prof. Dr. Abdullah Y. Ă–ztoprak

Dear Students and Parents,


hoosing a career path that will bring success and fulfillment in one’s future life is a serious matter. Receiving a quality education that will support young people in their future life and career is therefore not only essential for them today, but also their most natural right. In this regard, I would like to take this opportunity to give you some information about Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU). EMU was established in 1979 and immediately took its place amongst the best universities in the Mediterranean region. It is an international university with 16,000 students from 85 different countries, and 1000 instructors from 35 different countries. Numerous collaborations through student exchange programs with universities abroad add to the international dimension of the educational experience, enabling our students to meet young people from many different parts of the world and with a wide variety of cultural backgrounds and perspectives. As a state university receiving government support, EMU has been fortunate to have been able to keep students fees at a very reasonable level. With a well-developed infrastructure, well-qualified academic staff and excellent student-instructor relationships, EMU students are educated to become self-confident, creative and competitive individuals within an environment that is modern, innovative and student-centered. I would like therefore to invite you to EMU, a university where you will experience a peaceful and privileged educational life in a multicultural community in which sensitivity to the society and the environment and academic excellence are premium values.


EMU’s modern campus is situated not far from the medieval city of Famagusta, North Cyprus. The history of the city and the region however stretches back to ancient times, and is rich in historical and archaeological sites that offer a flavor of the many different cultures and civilizations that the island has hosted. With such an inheritance, it is hardly surprising that today Famagusta is once more developing into a major cultural, artistic and educational center, and collaborating with EMU to host major international festivals and performers from around the world. Miles of sandy, unspoiled coastline meanwhile combine with the climate of the Eastern Mediterranean to enable swimming and an outdoor life to be pursued for around eight months of the year. The relaxed Mediterranean lifestyle and the culture of hospitality for which the region is famous combine to provide students from abroad with an environment that is not only welcoming but extremely safe to live and study in. For those students who wish to experience more of what this beautiful region has to offer, the major cities and tourist centers of Turkey are readily accessible by both air and sea at

reasonable cost. Istanbul is just over an hour away by plane, whilst the coastal resorts of southern Turkey can be reached in just a few hours by sea. English is widely spoken across Northern Cyprus and there will always be somebody willing to help in the case of any difficulties. Local people are always delighted however to hear foreigners try out their Turkish, and as all students at EMU take Turkish language courses, there is plenty of support provided in this regard. And since Turkish is one of the top 20 most widely-spoken languages in the world, this indeed is yet another opportunity that living on the island presents.

this spirit of peaceful co-existence, EMU maintains facilities for religious practice on behalf of both its Moslem and Christian students. Furthermore, EMU positively encourages the diverse cultures and nationalities that make up our community to come together in a celebration of our multicultural character. The atmosphere of friendship that has resulted is one of the distinguishing features of our university. Transportation by Air: Flights to Ercan Airport, North Cyprus are only available from Turkey and usually take just over an hour.

North Cyprus is a country that welcomes all visitors regardless of their origins, nationalities or beliefs. In keeping with




Fa m a g u s t a

Historical Highlights Famagusta is believed to have been established by Philadelphus, one of the Ptolemus kings, who gave Arsinoe, his sister’s name, to the city in 285 BC. In 648, as a result of the gradual evacuation of Salamis due to the attacks by Arabs, it developed into a small port. With the hope that the city would remain undiscovered by the Arabs, the name of the city was changed to ‘Ammochostos’, meaning ‘hidden in sand’.

Namık Kemal Dungeon and Museum

Namik Kemal, a distinguished Turkish nationalist poet and novelist, and four of his friends were sent into exile by the Ottoman Sultan in 1873 soon after the first performance of his play ‘Vatan or Silistre’. Namık Kemal’s exile lasted for 38 months until he was forgiven by Murat V. Namik Kemal wrote the majority of his works during the period of exile he spent in Famagusta. Namik Kemal Dungeon and Museum have been restored and are open to visitors.

Othello’s Castle

One of the most important historical treasures of Famagusta is Othello’s Castle, which was built in the 14th century during the Lusignan period to protect the harbour. In 1492 the Venetians transformed it into an artillery stronghold. The marble panel above the entrance shows the winged lion of Venice, and includes the name of Nicolo Foscarini who remodelled the castle. It is thought that when Leonardo da Vinci visited Cyprus in 1481, he advised the Venetians on the design of the defences of Famagusta. In the courtyard of the Othello’s Castle, there are some Ottoman and Spanish cannons and iron cannon balls. The surviving walls and bastions of Famagusta are from the Venetian period. The present day name of the tower, Othello’s Castle, came into use during the British colonial period. In Shakespeare’s famous tragedy, where the setting is a “seaport in Cyprus”, the character of Othello is a hero from Morocco. It is believed that the Castle is named after him.

AMPUS LIFE Set in 2200 acres of land just outside Famagusta, EMU offers a pleasant and attractive environment in which to study. Its modern and well equipped educational facilities include conference rooms, activity centers, dedicated laboratories, and computer centers in all main buildings. An excellent library offers not only a wide range of educational resources but a superior study environment. EMU has its own fully-equipped health center, post-office and a wide choice of catering outlets and shops to serve students’ every need. A

thriving calendar of social and cultural activities enlivens the campus throughout the academic year and the university’s very own radio and television channels add further colour to life in the EMU community.


OST OF LIVING Depending on the

program students choose to enroll on, tuition fees range from 6500 USD to 8000 USD for one academic year. Accommodation and living expenses will vary according to choice of lifestyle. However, given current exchange rates,

students at EMU would normally need to budget for around 450 USD per month to support an economic but reasonable lifestyle during the course of their studies.


RANSPORT Regular bus-services

connect the major towns of Northern Cyprus. More locally, the university provides its own campus and city bus service. Many students choose to make use of bicycles, whilst others apply for TRNC driving licences. Traffic circulates on the left.

ORIENTATION Adapting to life in a new country is not always easy, but EMU’s services are designed to help overseas students from the very moment of their arrival on the island. Newly-registered students are met at Ercan Airport and transferred to EMU. A full program of orientation activities helps newly registered students to adapt to the environment both on and off campus. This program includes social and cultural activities as well as sightseeing tours around the island. During the orientation period, information desks are available not only on campus but also at the airport in order to provide help from the very outset. The International Office meanwhile is a home away from home for all overseas students, providing help and support at all times throughout our students’ stay on the island.
