One of the positive legacies of British imperial period is the tradition to maintain cultural ties and connections' framework between Cyprus and Albion, Britain. In regard to our interest, it is education system, and, especially so, what was inherited by Cyprus education system from Britain, past and present. With well kept traditions of British schools, colleges and universities. Naturally, the academic language in such institutions is English.

Understandably, the peak of the integration between the two island-countries was in the period of British rule on the island. Although, even now, a lot of native English speakers continue to live in Cyprus at present time. Besides, Cyprus was and is quite popular with British retirees and UK seniors on leave in general.
