University of Nicosia has reported to take BTC and offer MSc Digital Currency.
I was interested in this and wanted to learn more about the program. There is not much online. Anyone know who is running this or how to contact them directly?
Also I went to apply to the university and guess what, they take paypal but there is no way to pay in BTC that I could find
Pretty disappointing but hopefully they are just updating things.
I live in Cyprus, University of Nicosia is the largest uni here. Respected one. I have friend who finished Hospitality management there and I can say she is really good professional.
They do not accept BTC payments directly through the website, you have to call their financial department:
"Making Payments Using Bitcoin
If you would like to pay your tuition and/or fees using Bitcoin, please contact the Finance Department at the University of Nicosia at +357 22 841518" Check this page: http://www.unic.ac.cy/about-us/university-of-nicosia-digital-currency-initiative/bitcoin-payments
The University of Nicosia is launching the first Master of Science degree in Digital Currency that will be offered to students worldwide through online
and in-person formats in Spring 2014.
