Admission requirements & procedures
Admission criteria for undergraduate programs:
The criteria for regular admission to the College undergraduate programs are as follows:
A Secondary School Leaving Certificate with an average mark of at least 70%, 14/20, or equivalent qualifications.
Applicants who possess a recognized Secondary School Leaving Certificate but the average mark is lower than the requested, could be admitted to the College on a probational basis. The performance of students admitted on a probational basis will be evaluated upon completion of their first two academic semesters, a period during which they are expected to achieve a minimum CGPA of 1.50.
Transfer Admission: based on a transfer evaluation by the prospective program coordinator and the guidelines of the Ministry of Education & Culture.
Admission and Registration Instructions
The prospective student should send to the Office of Admissions at the 6 Karatheodori Str. 3011 Limassol, Cyprus or personally refer with the following:
- Completed Application Form 2015 along with the required amount of 50EUR
- Certificate or copy of the certificate of secondary school.
- One photo (passport size).
A candidate who meets the minimum registration conditions in a tertiary school of education, as required in the Article 2 of the Law 67(I) 96, but has some lack in education, e.g. if he/she does not speak English very well so that it will be difficult to attend the course of his/her program, he/she will be accepted in this program of study provided that he/she will attend the English Summer Course or Foundation Year of study. After qualifying exams he/she will be placed in the first semester of his/her chosen program.
During his/her study in the first or second semester of the foundation year of study, the student will be taught every day for at least five teaching periods per day, but there would be no practical training in industry. All courses will be compulsory.
During his/her study, as well as at the end of each academic semester of the foundation year of study, student will undergo oral and written exams, but will only be granted a certificate of attendance, without earning any ECTS or exclusion from future courses.
If the student’s performance at the end of the second semester of the foundation year of study is considered satisfactory by the Academic Council of the college, the student will be placed in the first semester of the first year of study.
If the prospective student meets all the conditions for admission but after an interview found it necessary to further enhance knowledge of English language, the student will be accepted in the specific program of study provided that he/she will participate in the summer English course and will acquire a Sufficient English Language certificate of the college with a minimum success score of 60% in the final examination.
When a prospective student is admitted to Mesoyios College, the Office of Admissions will send a Letter of Acceptance. After the candidate receives the Letter of Acceptance, he/she must pay tuition for the first year of study or the minimum amount of € l000 as a deposit towards tuition.
The final step in the admission process is the selection of courses for the chosen program of study, under the guidance of the counsellors and teachers.
The Admissions Office will notify all new students for the specific date for selection of the courses.
Student registration is a standard procedure taking place prior the commencement of the new semester. This is a process that takes place between academic advisor and student. At MC there is a registration period, during which academic advisors should consult students in order to be properly registered for their courses. Late registration is permitted under exceptional conditions, but students who have delayed entry can not be sure if there is a place for them in the courses that interest them. Some courses may be canceled as a result of low enrollment even before the end of late registration.
Students who successfully completing their registration, will receive a personal timetable. On this timetable important information will be issued such as teaching hours and classrooms where courses will be operated. Timetable changes are likely to occur during the first two weeks of classes and are publicized on the notice boards. Students may not be able to register if they have been suspended from MC or if their names are on the Registration Stop List.
Students may not be allowed to register in courses when owe:
- Money to the College,
- Books to the library
For the above reasons, stop listed students will have to obtain a Stop List Clearance Letter to be allowed to register.
Also, students may not be allowed to register to courses due to:
a) A decision made by the Disciplinary Committee:
Dismissal from MC due to unethical or violent behavior, or any other unprofessional behavior that does not comply with the Students Code of Conduct principles.
b) A decision made by the Academic Committee:
1) Student’s personal failure to meet MC’s academic progress criteria:
Diploma – completion of two consecutive semester with a CPA < 1.7
Higher Diploma – completion of two consecutive semester with a CPA < 1.8
Bachelor – completion of two consecutive semester with a CPA < 2.0
2) Student’s involvement in any illegal action or activity, which confronts the Laws of the Republic of Cyprus and as a result the student himself/herself is under arrest or when the Courts’ decision is pending.
A conditional offer is when a candidate may be asked to obtain further academic qualifications in order to be accepted onto a course. As soon as a candidate satisfies these conditions he/she should proceed to send the required documents.
Students seeking readmission must complete a new application form for consideration. International students who applying for readmission should also adhere the current process requirements and/or relevant legislation.
