Overview

We at GAU have been committed to preparing our students for active participation in a changing global world for nearly 3 decades.  We find that changing has become one of the constants in our lives.

We believe there is no better preparation for the demands of the future than a multi faceted education that GAU provides.  This is grounded in a tradition of academic excellence, dedicated to the personal and intellectual developmental of its students.  It aims to develop men and women prepared – and capable of – assuming highly responsible roles in life.

GAU is the oldest university in the island of Cyprus, our location in Girne /Kyrenia, North Cyprus has links with the past.  In keeping with the legacy of our rich history we are confident that our current international educational environment is second to none.  Our campus is a garden square of 35 acres, which combines fine traditional elements with a beautiful environment and state – of – the – art technology.  You will have the opportunity to balance your studies with healthy recreation both on and off campus.  You will find friends all around the world to talk to, to study with and share the multitude of joys experiences of our university life.

GAU will provide you with a dedicated faculty who possess a genuine love of learning.  The comprehensive curriculum composed of a wide range of courses that are offered within an environment conducive to your success.  We will challenge, stretch and strengthen your thinking in ways that you never dreamt possible.  We will expect more, require more, and tolerate less than any other institution in your academic life thus far.  At the same time we will afford you every possible avenue to achievement.

The reality is that, even with the best of all these things, we cannot learn for you.  You must learn for yourself, you must learn from each other, and we will learn from you.  You must demonstrate high motivation willing to invest the time and the energy needed to achieve life’s truest success.

Since 1985, GAU has grown in its understanding of itself, as a modern University. We have high expectations of ourselves and our students and endeavor to raise our standards of education through the use of external accrediting bodies. We are proud of the many accreditations we hold, and the ones that are still forthcoming.
