UCY is an active member in more than 60 international university networks and associations (at both institutional and departmental level), such as the Network of Universities from the Capitals of Europe (UNICA), the SGroup – Universities in Europe network (SGroup), the International Association of Universities (IAU), the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) and the European Universities Association (EUA).  UCY’s leading role in the wider Euro-Mediterranean region is also evidence by its Rector’s participation in the Board of Directors of the Mediterranean Universities Union (UNIMED).   One of UCY’s most recent achievements is its participation in the university alliance YUFE (Young Universities for the Future of Europe) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8VmnGhYM0E&feature=youtu.be) with 9 other European universities. YUFE is one of the 17 alliances of European universities selected by the European Commission in 2019, to develop and implement the first models for a European University. The YUFE alliance aims at bringing a radical change in European higher education by establishing itself as the leading model of a young, student-centred, non-elitist, open and inclusive European University.
