IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Measures in Relation to COVID-19

We are currently, collectively experiencing unprecedented times due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. Akademia College – along with educational institutions worldwide – continues to follow developments closely and to take every precaution and measure to ensure the wellbeing of our community, academics, students and stakeholders, whilst in parallel establishing methods to offer the highest standard of tuition during this crisis.

It goes without saying that the college is adhering to all guidelines set out by the Cyprus Ministry of Health regarding the protection of public heath and the restriction of the COVID-19 virus, and as such, the college has taken decisive action to prevent the spread of the virus and to minimise the impact of its effects.

We recognise that these are challenging times for both educators and students, and as a college, we will offer maximum flexibility to facilitate distance learning programmes and visual training courses.

Our team continues to work tirelessly to find new ways to leverage Information and Communication Technologies to implement modern e-learning through distance participation in all programmes. We will offer further updates to all stakeholders upon finalisation of the approach adopted in the coming days.

Specific measures have been taken and guidance is given to staff on an ongoing basis and regularly updated in line with that of the Cyprus Ministry of Health. Key to our actions is the closure of our college building for the better protection of everyone who cooperates with the college - in whichever capacity, and we kindly request that stakeholders do not attempt to visit the physical premises of the college. This is a necessary measure to ensure that we are operating responsibly, safeguarding public health, and do not allow the virus to spread.

Although the college building remains closed, we maintain regular communication through the use of telephone, email, facsimile and the Moodle platform on our website. Where documents are required to be delivered to the college and/or prepared by the college, please communicate with us by telephone and further instructions will be given.

As we continue to monitor the evolution of the situation, we urge everyone to follow developments calmly; to adhere strictly to all instructions and recommendations made by the competent authorities of the state, and to take all necessary precautions to limit the spread
of the virus in Cyprus.

With the occasion of Greek Orthodox Easter, we would also like to offer a message of support and hope to all our stakeholders. We pride ourselves on operating as a ‘family’ and it is the continuing bonds we share that motivate us to work hard to deliver our educational courses in the safest manner possible.

If we all work together, we can see better days ahead, and this is the true meaning of the Easter spirit – an ethos of coming together for the collective good, which Akademia College has always upheld, and will continue to do so as we navigate these unchartered seas.
