The titles of professors, associate professors and doctors of sciences of China and Cyprus now have an equal value. This became possible after the signing of the Agreement on the mutual recognition of academic degrees of these countries over the weekend.
The basic agreement was concluded in Beijing within the framework of the meeting of Ministers of Education, Costas Cadiz and Chen Baocheng, and it is based on mutual recognition of the academic titles of Cyprus and China. Thus, the title of professor in Cyprus universities will have the same power in China, and vice versa, Chinese university diplomas will be recognized in the academic and professional community of Cyprus.
As a result of the signed document, in the near future a Chinese cultural center may appear in Nicosia.
