University of Kyrenia Continuing Education Center was established to provide short-term training to participants of all ages as part of University’s mission to contribute to the development of our island and the city of Kyrenia, the heart of our island with education.
The main goal of the Continuing Education Center is to offer short term training programs at international standards to any participant who would like to develop personally or professionally.
In line with this purpose, as we continue our education activities with the lifelong and continuous education philosophy, we do not only convey just the knowledge and skills of the educator to the participants through our training programs. We also allow participants to share their own life experiences, knowledge and skills by providing an interactive educational environment.
We live in a century where our social and professional lives encourages us to constantly improve ourselves. As the Continuing Education Center we support the personal and professional development of our participants with our goal oriented training programs created by our expert staff of University of Kyrenia. We use the required methods, theoretical, technology and educational techniques for each age group. We also offer qualified educational support to the highest level for all individuals, institutions and organizations who would like to improve and renew their careers, services and products.
In our short-term training programs we ensure our students to develop their own abilities and skills. We contribute to increase the organizational development and efficiency of our institutions and organizations through in-service training’s we offer for institutions. We provide continuing education programs to everyone who is interested, that will facilitate their daily lives and that will allow you to look at the world from different perspectives.
We design and create new programs with the feedback we receive from every participant every year in order to adopt lifelong education in Cyprus.
We believe that we will rebuild the future for our society and the world with you and education.
We hope to meet with you in our Continuing Education programs this year.
