Message from Founder

Final International University was established in North Cyprus in 2015, and opened its doors to students at the beginning of the 2016-2017 academic year in a brand new, purpose-built campus in Kyrenia, one of the most popular and beautiful tourist destinations in the Eastern Mediterranean region.

The University was founded by the Final Group of Turkey in partnership with the Acapulco-Destination Management Group. The Final group has nearly forty years of experience in the educational world, and currently operates 415 educational institutions, ranging from primary schools to universities. Over three and a half million students have graduated from these institutions, and twelve thousand teachers are employed by the group. Final is also a leading publisher of educational books and magazines. 

In setting up Final International University, the group partnered with the Acapulco-Destination Management Group in North Cyprus, the group behind, amongst other enterprises, the five-star Acapulco hotel, one of Kyrenia’s premier luxury hotels, and a leading specialist in not only tour organisation but also air and sea transport services.

We believe that this collaboration - between one of Turkey’s top specialist educational groups and one of the leading lights of the North Cyprus tourism industry – has the potential to develop a unique presence and brand in the field of higher education, and provide a natural bridge between the worlds of academia and business. It also enables us to provide an ideal environment for students to take advantage of a high-quality international education at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

In opening FIU, we have invested heavily in time and resources and employed a top quality team of academics and administrative staff to ensure that we are able to offer students both locally and internationally an educational experience that will stand out in the region for its quality of teaching, research, care, and career opportunities. Above all, we wish our graduates to benefit from our dedication to innovation, dynamism and renewal and to carry these values with them into their chosen fields of employment.

We look forward to a future full of hope, success and high achievements in all areas and to making vibrant contributions to our communities locally, regionally and internationally.
