Asylum Seeker is a person who has fled his or her country of origin and is seeking recognition and protection as a refugee in the Republic of Cyprus, and whose application is still under consideration. In case of a negative decision on their application, they will need to leave the country voluntarily or face deportation.
The asylum seekers (as well as the refugees) are allowed to study at the University of Cyprus, provided that they have been accepted to register to a Program of Study at the University of Cyprus.
(Of course, for the asylum seekers there is the possibility of not obtaining a visa and forced to leave the country. In such a case, the studies at the University are also interrupted).
