Over the past two decades, the University of Nicosia has led the development of life and health sciences programmes in Cyprus. The University of Nicosia started the first medical programme in Cyprus in 2011 by offering the St George’s, University of London graduate-entry course.
Our Medical School, the largest in the country, now also offers a 6-Year MD degree programme designed for high school leavers, an MSc in Family Medicine for practicing primary care physicians and a PhD in Medical Science. More than 500 students from 58 countries around the world are enrolled in our Medical School, coming from as far away as the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
In addition to our achievements in medical education and research, you also benefit from world-class faculty members, experienced and supportive staff, international partnerships, and state-of-the-art facilities and learning resources. The student-centred curriculum allows for the early development of clinical skills and reasoning, and promotes collaborative learning, critical thinking and reflection, skills that are essential for your future career in medicine.
Our graduates are practising as doctors across the world, including the USA, Canada, UK, other EU countries, Israel and Lebanon.
