NEPOMAK in collaboration with the Open University of Cyprus (OUC) are proud to present the annual NEPOMAK and OUC Scholarship Award.
The OUC provides high-quality university education on the basis of open and distance learning, a new approach in the higher education system of Cyprus. More specifically, in contrast to conventional universities, students at the OUC are not required to attend conventional classes and lectures. Rather, our students have the flexibility to study at any time of the day, at home, from any location regardless of the distance from the University premises.
