Hello everyone, my name is Ira. This year I entered the Girne American University (GAU) the faculty of graphic design. My friend also applied to North Cyprus last year, so I became interested and decided to find out more about it. She shared with me the contacts of Alvi Consult and then the company helped me with all the details. They told me in detail about each of the universities and helped me choose the most suitable option. At first, when I generally thought about entering a foreign country, I thought that I would deal with all the documents myself, but in reality, it turned out to be much more difficult to do, because there is little reliable information on the Internet, or rather, it is difficult to reach exactly the information that will turn out to be reliable. In 2020, the challenge has been compounded by an unstable situation around the world. But despite this, the company Alvi Consult helped me as much as possible and saved me from many mistakes. So, I would like to say a big thank you to the company for taking over all organizational issues and making my flight to another country as comfortable and smooth as possible!

I applied to the Cyprus International University (CIU) to the Faculty of Interior Design. I really like this university as it offers more opportunities than on the south side of Cyprus. Alvi Consult helped us a lot, they did all the work that we had to do to apply to the university.

My name is Aida Buzgulova, I am from Kazakhstan, the city of Almaty. 5 years ago I couldn’t even dream that I could apply for a 75% scholarship to an American university abroad, with my beginner level of English. But I was so lucky to meet the agency that provided me such an opportunity. So I flew to this wonderful island and applied to the Master's program at the Girne American university (GAU), to the Faculty of Business Management (MBA). The first year I studied at the Foundation school to learn the language and now, having graduated the Master's program successfully, I applied for the Ph'D program of the same faculty. Why this university? - because that agency recommended it to me as the very first and best university on this island, and I was already convinced of this when I arrived. This university is located in the most beautiful city of the N.Cyprus, Girne (Kyrenia) - where there are mountains and the sea. Many people call it as mini Italy, and I endlessly thank God and myself for being here and for studying in this multinational, multidisciplinary university with a high and trustable reputation; with beautiful views of the sea and mountains from any windows of the buildings, where teachers and working staff turn to you as to the best friend. They are always ready to help with questions, give knowledge and respect professionally; made friends all over the world, and where the atmosphere on the campus is like in the most actual American films: fun, vivid, and captivating. Wanting to learn one foreign language (English), I learned two (Turkish too), because in the country everyone speaks in two languages: English and Turkish. And it's very cool to develop more widely, getting to know the culture of different nationalities. But the most important thing that I like best here is the climate: constantly sunny, warm and favorable for human life (all year round). I think this is the best place where anyone would want to live!

Good afternoon everyone, my name is Sveta. This year, I applied to the university in North Cyprus for the second time. Of course I contacted the company Alvi Consult for the admission process. I applied for the Faculty of Psychology at Final International University. I didnt make choice between universities, as from the beginning I already knew that I will be applying to Final University. I really liked the approach of the university to learning, the infrastructure of the university and the very responsive people studying there. This year has become really difficult, and even more so for moving to a new country, but that is why Northern Cyprus was a kind of island of hope for me. The situation during the pandemy here improved faster than other countries, and the state still has control over the situation in its hands. North Cyprus is a great start for students who are just starting their independent life. I am infinitely grateful to Alvi Consult for the fact that even after my plane has already landed in Cyprus, we keep in touch and there is nowhere to panic) With Alvi Consult, I knew that before I could close my eyes, I would receive my student letter. To feel that everything is really “for people” is sometimes unusual, but here it is just like that!

I am from Turkmenistan. I graduated from undergraduate and graduate programs at the Cyprus International University (CIU). On admission to the bachelor program, I received a 70% scholarship, and on a master program received a 100%. During the master program, I got the opportunity to work at the university. My student days at the university and on campus are unforgettable. For all the same time, I met different people from different countries and still communicate and are friends with them. Among all the universities in Northern Cyprus, I chose CIU because it matched all the criteria, and I have no regrets about my choice. I say that CIU is the best university in Northern Cyprus.

I am originally from Russia. I study the Architecture program at Arkin University of Creative Arts and Design (ARUCAD). The first time I entered to the university, I was immediately captured by the creative, sensual atmosphere from the university, from the people who taught there. Living on the island for 5 years, I seemed to be in another place, amazed by kind and open-minded teachers. Teachers give you useful knowledge and reveal exactly talent, without loading you with unnecessary information, which will not be useful in the future. I have never seen such a vibrant and colorful university.

I am a student at Cyprus International University (CIU). I entered the faculty of economics, department of business administration. Many people ask me why North Cyprus:
1. I always wanted to know what it is like to study on an island with a soft climate.
2. People who loves swimming in Cyprus have the opportunity to relax, sunbathe on the sandy beaches of resort towns, such as Girne and Famagusta, for 8–9 months a year.
3. The goal of each student is still mainly education. In Cyprus, there are no distractions for study, and the entire system is built for the convenience of students.
4. Almost every university has a free transport service (every hour students can take the route that they need from the university bus stop).
5. And of course, the fact that in Cyprus you can get an international education. There are branches of American and European universities on the island. And all this at affordable prices.
On the island of North Cyprus, in addition to getting a good education, you can have a great student year. You can think carefully about your future, and tune into work. Indeed, Cyprus is a place for calming the spirit and the very place for making plans for the future. Student here realize what they want from life and move on to goals with an international diploma of North Cyprus.

I am a Syrian-Lebanese student at Arkin University of Creative Arts and Design. Despite being a small university, it's absolutely a fantastic place to study. The staff is extremely friendly, professional & understanding. The university education system is a combination of theory and practical skills, which helps me be more confident as a filmmaker. It is a lot of work, but you can feel yourself improving every day. Coming from a foreign country, I am certain that I made the right decision in choosing Arkin University.
