Erasmus is an initiative under The Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Commission for Education & Training. The European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme enables people at all stages of their lives to take part in stimulating learning experiences, as well as helping to develop the education and training sector across Europe. The Erasmus programme in each country is coordinated by a national agency and in Cyprus it is run by the Foundation for the management of European Lifelong Learning Programmes. Higher Education in Cyprus is provided by public and private institutions and it is regulated by the Department of Cyprus Higher Education, of the Cyprus Ministry of Education and Culture.
