A key objective of the University of Cyprus is to strengthen the cooperation and the already close relations with the Greek and Cypriot Diaspora. In this direction, various actions are organised, such as the “Discover Cyprus” Programme of the National Federation of Cypriots (NEPOMAK), the hosting of professors and students from the Diaspora at the University of Cyprus and the cooperation with the Office of the Presidential Commissioner for the provision of scholarships to students of the Cypriot Diaspora.

Through these actions, the strengthening of research and educational cooperation with academic institutions in which there is an organized Cypriot community is achieved, as well as the promotion of the Cypriot history culture abroad, and the attraction of expatriate students and academics to the University of Cyprus.
