University Of Nicosia visit

The ACU  signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the University of Nicosia (UNIC), Cyprus, in August 2019.

International collaboration is central to our ambition to build a better world through higher education: by bringing universities together from around the world – and crucially the people who study and work within them – the ACU helps to advance knowledge, promote understanding, broaden minds, and improve lives. With over 500 member institutions in more than 50 countries.

The MoU was signed by the UNIC Rector, Professor Philippos Pouyioutas, and the ACU Chief Finance Officer, Caroline Harrison. Professor Andreas Charalambous, Executive Dean of the Medical School, will be UNIC’s representative in its relations with the ACU.

Caroline Harrison, ACU Chief Finance Officer, said: ‘I look forward to cultivating our institutional relationship and especially, the prospect of exploring the option to establish a regional ACU office at UNIC that can actively contribute in building a better world through higher education’.

Professor Charalambous added: ‘Collaboration within the ACU network is an excellent fit for UNIC, which has been instrumental to the internationalisation of higher education in the wider region’.
