Located south of Turkey is the island of Cyprus. The Republic of Cyprus, a former British colony which gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1960 and became a Commonwealth republic in 1961, has been a member of the European Union since 1 May 2004. The study costs in Cyprus are usually lower than in other European countries. There are lots of learning programs obtainable, including those for kids, families, students and adults.
A modern European culture combined with the charm of ancient civilizations, Cyprus has beautiful beaches and sceneries, ancient ruins and old stone villages for you to explore. The Mediterranean sun is there for you to enjoy throughout the year, averaging 320 to 340 days of sunshine. This is probably the most rain free country in Europe. The temperatures are usually above 22 °C (72 °F) from April to November, the hottest and the driest months being June, July ,and August.
Cyprus represents a unique combination of a fascinating cultural background with a laid back, fun lifestyle. This country is also renowned for its hospitality. The people are said to be welcoming, kind and open. All this makes Cyprus a perfect place for people that seek good quality education together with relaxation. When you are not busy with your studies, you can go swimming, sun-bathing, traveling around the island, and much more.
An interesting aspect in Cyprus is that it has two separate cultures which are the Turkish and Greek Cypriots. Each of them holds its own culture, linking back to their original cultures of Turkey and Greece. There is little cultural interchange between the two groups. English learning programs are mostly offered in the south (“Greek”) part of the island.
