English in Cyprus, the largest international language school in Cyprus, has joined the Quality English brand of English language schools. This is the first international recognition of any English Language school in Cyprus.
There are now 63 schools and colleges within the Quality English and Quality Education group.
Cyprus was part of the British Empire until 1961, 4% of the population are British, and over 1 million tourists arrive from the UK every year. The island has been developing as an English Language destination for the past 10 years.
Stephan Roussounis, Director of English in Cyprus, said “This is a significant milestone for us, we are delighted to join an exceptional group of independent schools. Recognising Cyprus as a 9th English language destination for international students is momentous for the island, not just our school.”
The Quality English logo is an assurance that you, as a student, will have a rewarding and enjoyable experience, whilst improving your English Language skills. Quality English Schools are privately owned, independent and run by the people who own them. Quality is paramount to the principles of these schools which have to have local accreditation certifying their high academic standards.
Quality English Schools are selected from the best independent schools and colleges in English speaking countries. They carry out a comprehensive assessment to ensure that they meet its criteria whilst also gathering feedback from current students, and the agents the school or college works with. Regular inspections are carried out to ensure the high standards are being maintained.
Jonathan Swindell, Chief Executive of Quality English said, “Cyprus holds huge potential as a destination for study travel and, in English in Cyprus, we have a school with all the high standards and attributes needed to be an exciting addition to the Quality English group.”
The Cyprus Tourism Organisation also commented on the news, with acting Director General Mr. Marinos Menelaou stating, “The Cyprus Tourism Organisation is delighted that Cyprus is increasingly being accepted and considered as a prime destination for international students to learn English language skills. We congratulate "English in Cyprus" on its membership to "Quality English", and believe their success will act as a catalyst for more schools to develop and extend theri English language facilities to foreign visitors.”
