7 good reasons to study abroad in Cyprus

Here are seven reasons I recommend studying abroad in Cyprus.

  1. Nobody really knows where or what it is.

    How many people do you know who have studied in Madrid? Beijing? London?

Then ask yourself how many people you know who have studied in Cyprus. Probably none, right? It’s truly a one-of-a-kind experience — you’ll have stories to tell for life.

  1. The price of living in Cyprus is incredibly reasonable.

Unless you’re heading to fine dining and scuba diving lessons on the regular — which you totally can do in Cyprus! — you’ll spend a lot less than you would have spent studying in a major European city.

It’s easy to eat cheaply, taxis charge fairly, and once you start getting to know the locals you’ll barely pay a dime for the nightlife.

You literally have the world at your fingertips. Europe’s to the west, Asia’s to the east, and Africa’s to the south.

  1. You’ll get to experience more of one country than you could anywhere else.

Because Cyprus is so small (seriously, check it out on a map — you may have to squint), not only will you be able to experience all the touristy things, you’ll become very familiar with your surroundings and get to know the locals quickly.

After a semester in Cyprus, it’ll really start to feel like your home away from home.

  1. The weather is gorgeous year-round.

Flexible weather all year long

  1. There’s a reason Cyprus is a vacation destination.

It’s home to some amazing beaches, and there’s something magical about that Mediterranean water. Ocean swimming, jet-skiing, banana boating, cliff diving – there are lots of ways to play in the sea.

  1. Cypriots know how to party.

It’s safe to say that they inherited the celebratory nature of the Greeks and turkish. That’s right — Cypriots hit the club on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Not that there’s any shortage of people at the bars on Monday and Tuesday.

If you happen to go abroad during the summer, just imagine your first semester of college all over again… with Greek and Turkish music, beautiful people, and large bodies of water.

  1. You’ll meet people from all over the world.

I had professors from France, Egypt, and England as well as classmates from literally everywhere.

My Facebook friends list became remarkably multicultural this past semester, and should I ever find myself in Lebanon, United Arab Emirates, Nigeria, or Syria, I now allegedly have a place to stay!
