The public education system in Cyprus is designed by the Ministry of Education and Culture. It is designed to educate young individuals so that they become upstanding democratic citizens, capable of contributing the society in a positive and meaningful way.
The Ministry accepts direction from the Education Council, which is a committee of members from Parents Associations, Teachers Associations, the Church, and the community. The public schools of Limassol are funded by the government of the Republic of Cyprus.
There are also private schools in Limassol, which are funded by individuals and private organisations rather than the government. These institutions are not designed by the Ministry of Education and Culture, so do not have a unifying curriculum. Instead, you will find a diverse range of directions of study.
For example, some private schools are designed with a foreign country’s culture and language at the forefront. Examples include the L.I.T.C. Russian-English Private School, and the American Academy.
For summer school Limassol has many options. You can find public school programs and private school programs, as well as camps where children can gather and learn from councillors.
Once a student completes his or her primary and secondary education, they may opt to move on to University. There are several options for higher learning within Limassol. The student will decide on a path that he or she wishes to pursue and then apply to an institute of higher education.
For example, if the student is interested in medicine, he may decide to apply to the University of Cyprus, for the biology programme. Once graduating the undergraduate program, the student can decide if he wants to go on to a postgraduate programme.
