School of Physical Education & Sports
European University of Lefke, in its multi-dimensional and rapid development, broadened its academic scope in 2016 by establishing the Higher School of Physical Education and Sports programme.
It is common knowledge that a healthy community is moulded by healthy individuals. Sports, despite its obvious significance in human vitality, is also an effective way of representing individual nations. Thus, there is a requirement for education well-equipped physical education and sports teachers as well as sports administrators, recreation leaders, coaches and scientists.
Under the light of this reality, EUL founded the Sport Management, Physical Education and Sport and Teacher Education as well as the Sport Coaching Departments under the umbrella of the School of Physical Education and Sport. Subsequently, this paved the road for future developments in the University meeting its social responsibility. The various departments strive to create and educate sport managers, coaches, PE and sport teachers, who are aware of the functional structure of human organisms as well as managing the biological and psychological effects of training. Ultimately, our graduates develop the potential sportive skills of youth.
The Sport Management Department commenced its academic studies in 2016, and continues to add new departments to its body, in line with physical and academic appropriateness.
Students who graduate from our department will be able to hold office in both governmental positions as well as the private sector.
In line with its mission of social responsibility, our University added the Higher School of Physical Education and Sports into its body. Initially with the Sports Management Department in 2016 and later in 2017 with the Physical Education and Sports Teacher Education Department and Recreation Department.
Prospective students who register to our departments will find themselves in a wonderful position, as they will be able to conduct their sporting activities in a beautiful island country. Not only does the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus have a rich sporting history, our University complex emphasises a special relationship and care toward sports.
Furthermore, the Great Leader of Turkey, Atatürk, had important words regarding sporting history and athletes; ‘Sport is not only the domination of the body’s strength. Intellectual capability and strong character contribute to this. Athletes who lack intelligence and comprehension, are not able to undermine those who lack strength but possess intelligence and comprehension. I admire the athletes who are intelligent, agile and ethical’. Following the words of our leader, I hope this quote illuminates our path in best educating our students.
