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

Dear Students and Parents,

C

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 13,000 students from 71 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.

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

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.

I see a lot of different nationalities at the university and they are all being welcomed by EMU in the same manner, which is a strong point for an international institution.

Not even for one minute did I feel that I was alone. I was introduced to many students from my own country and from other countries. I will always help the administration when they are in need of a mentor, just as they were there for me throughout my orientation and adaptation period.

RIENTATION 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 Centre 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.

A

CCOMMODATION EMU

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.
