UNICAF Scholarships

The UNICAF Scholarship Programme was founded to offer gifted underprivileged students from Africa the opportunity of furthering their education by studying towards a University of Nicosia distance learning degree.

The UNICAF Scholarship Programme is one of the most generous scholarship programmes available for African students and provides opportunities for studies towards the distance learning MBA, M.Ed or BBA programmes of the University of Nicosia at a fraction of the cost. The normal fees for the MBA,M.Ed or BBA degrees are €10,000 out of which UNICAF subsidises €8,000.  Students that qualify and are studying towards the distance learning MBA, M.Ed or BBA degrees will therefore pay ONLY €2000.

For the last two decades the University of Nicosia has been offering partial scholarships to international students. The vast majority of these students were able to make a significant contribution to their home countries and in many cases at the highest level.

The primary objective of the UNICAF Scholarship Programme is to provide the opportunity to students from Africa to pursue advanced academic studies and to earn internationally recognised qualifications by studying through distance learning.

Applicants will be expected to meet the following eligibility requirements:
  • Be a permanent resident of an African country.
  • Be earning less than €12,000 per year.
  • Be available to commence their academic studies within 6 months from the date of receiving admission.
  • Meet the entry requirements of the respective programme of study.
