Arkin University of Creative Arts and Design (ARUCAD)

mission statement

ARUCAD aims to fill the perceived absence of world-class art and design education in Cyprus and the Mediterranean region, thereby fulfilling contemporary needs and requirements. Through its interdisciplinary, cross-cultural programmes the University raises the bar in standards in the fields of art, design and communication, with the intention of contributing to cultural and intellectual life, locally, regionally and globally. Its approach highlights the fluid, transitive and hybrid nature of art, design and communication today.

international role

ARUCAD’s goal is to become one of the most reputable universities in art education, while collaborating with other institutions and universities to enrich its culture and promote diversity, whereby its students continuously improve their creative productivity through interdisciplinary and cross-cultural programmes based on traditional, modern and contemporary art teaching and learning, whilst adhering to the inseparable link of theory and practice.
