Atlantis College adheres to a policy of non-discrimination in admitting students without reference to race, colour, religion, gender,
handicap or national origin. The College students are from Cyprus and abroad,blending a diverse range of academic backgrounds, experiences, special interests, talents and cultural heritage.
The general admission requirement is for applicants to have aSecondary (High) School Leaving Certificate or equivalent qualifications.
The criteria for regular admission to the College are as follows:
1. A recognized Secondary (High) School Leaving Certificate.
2. Students must provide evidence of proficiency in the English language where the programme language is English. The following are considered acceptable:
a. A score of at least 550 (Paper-Based Score) or 173 (Computer-Based Score) on the TOEFL test.
b. A grade of “C” or higher in the GCE / IGCSE “O” level English Language examination.
c. An average grade of 5.0 in the IELTS examination.
For applicants for whom English is their mother tongue or for applicants who received their Secondary Education in countries where English is the native language, the English language requirement is not relevant.
English Language Placement Test
If an applicant fails to provide acceptable proof of his/her English proficiency he/she will be required to take the College English
Language Placement Test before registration. Students who fail the English Language standards of the College will be required to take English language courses or the foundation course of their program of study. Upon successful completion of the foundation programme, students will continue with their major programme of study.
The College academic calendar is arranged so that students may start in October (Fall), February (Spring) or June (Summer). An intensive English programme begins in June.
Transfer credit is credit earned at other accredited colleges and universities, which are transferable to Atlantis College. All courses are evaluated individually, based on the College’s standards and the student’s grades.
The general philosophy governing transfer credits is that a student’s knowledge, no matter how it was gained, can be considered as long as it is relevant and can be documented. Thus, credits may be transferred to the student’s record from a variety of sources. Where the credits duplicate, credits will transfer from only one (1) source.
Transfer credits may correspond to specific Atlantis College courses. In all cases, they appear on the student’s transcript with the suffix “TR”
Regardless of the credits transferred, students must complete a minimum of 60 ECTS for the Diploma and 120 ECTS for the Bachelor degree. Evaluation of transferred credits may vary based on the individual cases and depending on the completed academic courses, presented to the Academic Affairs Office.
A transcript is required. Course descriptions, syllabi and textbooks used may be required to determine the subject covered. Courses are normally evaluated individually. In some cases, validation may be required in the form of oral or written examination. The Director of Academic Affairs carries out this evaluation in consultation with the Programme Coordinator.
Atlantis College will also accept formal evaluations by the World Education Service or other authorized evaluation services for work
completed at colleges and universities around the world. Transfer of students to the College from other institutions of tertiary education in Cyprus or from abroad should take place before or during the first month start of the course.
