KYSATS is the competent authority of the Republic of Cyprus for the recognition of Higher Education qualifications obtained home and abroad. It also acts as the Education National Information Centre. It is an independent body funded and administratively supported by the Ministry of Education and Culture.

KYSATS recognises qualifications, such as degrees, diplomas or certificates which are issued by recognised Higher Education Institutions, the programmes of which have been educationally evaluated-accredited. The reference of evaluation for the recognition of titles awarded are the titles (degrees) awarded by public universities of Cyprus in the same discipline.
