Undergraduate Admission

Candidates for a bachelor degree program should submit a school leaving certificate from a recognized six-form secondary school (high school) with an average grade of 75% (Greek Cypriot secondary schools) or a grade “C” or its equivalent (other secondary schools), or equivalent qualification. Candidates who submit a six-form secondary school leaving certificate but do not meet the above grade requirements may be admitted on a probationary status, if they show potential for educational advancement. The probationary status will be removed, subject to a satisfactory academic performance. Candidates admitted on probationary status may also be asked to enroll in foundation courses in order to improve their skills and/or to take reduced load.

Such candidates should, along with their application form, submit the following documents:

  • A six-form secondary school (high school) leaving certificate or equivalent qualification.
  • Official transcripts (grade reports) and syllabi (course descriptions) for all University coursework taken to date.

Transcripts are evaluated by the relevant department to determine the number of credits to be transferred in accordance with the Frederick University curriculum requirements and the candidate’s academic performance.

Transfer students, regardless of the number of credits transferred should complete at least half of the ECTS credits required by the program of study at Frederick University in order to be eligible to graduate. For a 4-year 240 ECTS program, a transfer student must complete a minimum of two year full time study (120 ECTS) at Frederick University in order to be eligible to graduate.
