Students will be studying in Famagusta, in the northeast region of the country. This historical city contains the deepest harbor of the island, and during medieval times it was considered the most important port city as it was a gateway for trade between merchants from the Silk Road and Western Europe. Located right on the coast, it offers picturesque views of the Mediterranean sea contrasting with ruins located nearby.


Students will stay in the on-campus housing, but will have the option to stay with host families on the weekends to better immerse themselves in the language.
