Education and School Holiday Programmes

Information about things to do for teenagers during the school holidays...

Cypriot society places a great deal of importance on education and most teenagers spend some of their free time involved in educational activities organised by the school or by other institutions.

As Cyprus is a European Union member state, students in Cyprus may apply for grants offered by the European Commission. They include;

  • Comenius Programme - for primary and secondary school students; the programme facilitates school exchanges to develop knowledge and understanding of EU member states
  • ERASMUS+ Programme - for students in higher education; students can go abroad to study, go for training or work
  • Leonardo da Vinci Programme - for those interested in vocational education and training

The Comenius and ERASMUS+ programmes each aim to involve at least 3 million people over the duration of the programmes.
