Over the last decade, state-of-the-art laboratories have been developed in all research areas of the University, many of which excel and stand out internationally. At Frederick University, students have the opportunity to engage in research projects that are at the forefront of international research.

The central pillar of Frederick University’s success is its unique student-centric approach. The way the university operates is centred around the student, both collectively and individually. Every function serves the student needs, so that they can perform at their best, develop their talents and abilities and fulfil their dreams. Several services have been developed over the years to support the students before, during and after their studies. These services are intended to enhance academic, personal and professional development and help students deal with any difficulty.

Taking into account the conditions that have been developed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Frederick University decided to continue to offer significantly reduced tuition fees for the academic year 2021-2022 
Full and partial scholarships are offered to new full-time undergraduate students based on the average grade on their High School Leaving Certificate from public or private secondary schools in the Republic of Cyprus. Partial scholarships are offered to new postgraduate students based on their academic performance in their Bachelor’s degree. Full or partial scholarships are also offered to students based on their performance in sports, while special scholarships are offered to transfer students. The University also offers financial aid to candidates, based on various socio-economic criteria. 

To develop the skills students need to have in order to be competitive in today’s challenging and constantly changing industry, often traditional teaching methods are not enough. Consequently, Frederick University has developed co-curricular activities that complement classroom education and help students develop skills such as critical thinking, analytical skills, creativity, leadership and emotional intelligence. Through the ‘Active Students’ innovative initiative, the University has launched Units that offer non-formal education and promote the involvement of its students in such activities, programs and learning experiences. Students have the opportunity to apply theory to practice in real working conditions, to develop and test innovative ideas, to work with companies and organizations, and to develop skills and competencies that are important for future employers.
Some examples of these Units are: Mobile Devices Laboratory-MDL, eHealth Lab, Frederick University Formula Racing Team, Robotics Academy, School of Nature, Creative Lab.
