Cyprus is an island nation in the Eastern Mediterranean. It is a small state of the Commonwealth, with a population of just over one million.


COL’s work in Cyprus is primarily in the areas of higher education through the Virtual University for Small States of the Commonwealth and in technology-enabled learning. Participants from Cyprus have attended regional and international events hosted by COL, and learners have benefited from COL’s open online courses and other resources.


Partnerships are fundamental to COL’s work. Strategic partnerships allow COL to broaden its reach and engage at global, regional and national levels, while implementation partners support COL’s work in communities and institutions across Commonwealth Member States. Partners include multilateral organisations, regional bodies, national governments, government agencies, foundations, civil society organisations, public and private (not-for-profit) institutions and the private sector. COL partnerships assist in improving and extending teaching and learning services to people in the developing Commonwealth.

COL’s partners in Cyprus include:

  • Ministry of Education and Culture
  • University of Cyprus
