Must Read! A message to all old and new students in Cyprus

The new academic session (Spring Semester) in universities in Cyprus had only just begun and here's a few things every old and new students should know.

New students will be coming in while old students who traveled for the short winter holiday will be coming back but not many of you are aware of what to expect or what to do.

-As a foreigner arriving in a country for the first time on a study visa, the first thing to do is go through the country's immigration laws and get a resident permit.

-Most students has failed in this area year after year which put them in big trouble with immigration and police.

- It is very important that you start and complete your registration within the first week of resumption. After that, proceed with your resident permit (This is done online). Failure to do this within the stipulated time can land you in trouble and make you an alien in the country.

-Take class attendance very seriously and make sure to attend at least 75% of your classes for the semester. If there is a need to miss class, communicate it to your teacher or the appropriate authorities. 

-For those who do not want to register for a particular semester due to financial reasons or so, make sure to freeze that semester and pay off your debt. That way, you can get a resident permit and stay legally in the country.

-For those who may had dropped out of school and failed to freeze, make sure to settle your account with the university and register for the new semester.

-Make sure you have full access to your university portal. This will allow you have access to the university when needed. Dont wait till you debt pile up before paying, pay any little thing you can lay your hands on.

-Stay away from trouble and crime. Do not indulge in illegal activities like stealing, fighting, selling and smoking of drugs. This can land you in jail and then deportation.

-Always tell your trusted friends about your every movement.

-Make sure to have a registered sim card.

-Always ask questions if you feel lost.

-It's sill winter/spring and the cold is still very much in force, dress properly to avoid health issue. If you feel winter clothes are too expensive in Cyprus, try to get a few when coming.

-There is no readily available jobs in Cyprus, but you too can do something to make money rather than be a liability. You can render service, import stuff and sell or do something you think you have a talent for. Do not waste your time waiting on promises or waiting for a perfect job. (We need bloggers, maybe you can help us too lol)

-Try to be an active member of your student union or society. 

-If you must party, please stay out of trouble.

-If you must drive, make sure you are not drunk and not on high speed. Accidents are common everywhere but you too can avoid it.

-Above all, you are here for studies and that should be your main focus. Strive for the best and give your country a good name.
