FAQ

Can I find part-time paid work in North Cyprus?

Although some students take up this option whereby opportunities are found, it is best for students to focus on their studies. The Student Residence Permit provided is a permit to live and study in North Cyprus, and it is important to note that employment opportunities are not only rare, but that there is a lot of competition and wages are not usually sufficient to cover the cost of tuition.

What happens to my fees if I am refused a visa in my home country?

Your fees will be refunded in full.

Can I register at FIU just to study English?

Yes, as long as you are qualified for university entrance, you could register to spend 1 or 2 semesters studying in our English Preparatory School.

Can I fly to North Cyprus via airports in the south of the island?

Please bear in mind that free movement between the two sides of Cyprus is only possible for full EU passport holders. Most of our international students therefore have to use Lefkoşa Ercan Airport and transit through Istanbul.
