What our Students Say

Yehonatan Marziano, Class of 2023, Israel

Excellent preparation

The early clinical exposure of the programme provides excellent preparation to become a doctor anywhere in the world. And, as an Israeli student, my clinical placement allocation at Sheba Medical Center is extremely important, as a top hospital in Israel and worldwide.

Dr Limor Marko, Pediatrics Resident, Meir Medical Centre, Kfar Saba, Israel

Amazing programme

The fear of moving to a different country with a foreign language and different culture combined with an intensive medical programme disappear the moment you arrive in Cyprus. It all starts with a great team at the Medical School that will do their best to make relocation easy and fast. It goes with an amazing programme – offering skills and facilities to achieve self-confidence before meeting with real patients.
