A small island with a long history, Cyprus provides a distinctive setting to experience a medley of cultures, both ancient and modern. You'll be transported back to medieval times in the old section of Nicosia—yet, just over the ancient walls of the old city, you are in a glamorous, European capital. Known for pristine beaches, a dry climate, and 300 days of sunshine, Cyprus is a major hub of tourism for Europeans. Thousands of students from 70 countries around the world also choose Cyprus each year for study abroad. And it's no wonder why. The country is ranked the fifth safest in the world, it's English-speaking, and the academics are globally competitive. Give this tiny but mighty Euro island a semester to work it's magic, and see what it gives back.
