P1 – University of Central Lancashire Cyprus – Cyprus 

UCLan Cyprus is located in Larnaka, and it is now in its tenth year of operation. It is the first Branch Campus of the University of Central Lancashire and at the same time a fully licensed University in Cyprus. A unique and innovative model of a Cypriot and British University Educational Experience, accredited by the UK Quality Assurance Agency and the Cyprus Agency of Quality Assurance and Accreditation in Higher Education (CYQAA) respectively.


Built on strong academic foundations, the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan UK), our mother University, counts more than 190 years of history and is considered among the top 6.5% of all worldwide Universities by the Centre for World University Rankings (CWUR) 2020/21.


UCLan Cyprus operates under the academic umbrella of UCLan UK, and further to the latest political changes of the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union (BREXIT), it is considered a unique University, bridging the UK and Europe in terms of research, academic standards, student experience and student exchange. The completion of studies at UCLan Cyprus will result in a double-awarded degree (two certificates) from the two Universities, UCLan UK and UCLan Cyprus, recognized not only in Cyprus and UK, but also across Europe and beyond.


Our students will also have the advantage of an exceptional student experience in every aspect of their University life, whether it is learning, personal support, facilities, accommodation, employability and social life, as well as personal development.

P2 – Libera Università di Bolzano –Italy    

The Libera Università di Bolzano (UNIBZ) is a young university founded in 1997 as a multilingual, internationally oriented institution. It is a non-state funded public university located at the crossroads between the Italian and the German cultural and economic worlds. Multilingualism and internationality are its main characteristics as shown by the composition of its academic staff (35% of tenured professors and researchers are of international origin) and its exchange programmes with about 150 partner universities all over the world.

 

This international outlook is a driver of the research activity carried out at UNIBZ to address contemporary challenges while also meeting local interests. In fact, besides teaching and research, another fundamental objective of UNIBZ is to contribute to local development fostering knowledge through collaborations with public institutions and private organisations. UNIBZ is composed of five faculties (Computer Science, Education, Design and Art, Economics and Management, Science and Technology) and 2 Competence Centres with specific research focuses.

 

Despite its recent foundation, UNIBZ in the past few years has already established itself as an important research institution, both in Italy and abroad. In 2022, for the sixth time in a row, UNIBZ was placed first among the small non state Italian universities (Censis), with the highest score of all Italian universities. At international level (Times Higher Education World University Rankings) it ranked in the band 401-500 out of out almost 1600 institutions worldwide.
