What Our Students Say
Within the first weeks we were already immersed in the world of science, not only by learning a multitude of new diverse topics but also by delving deeper into any previously acquired knowledge from school.
Melina Mahr, MD, Class of 2020, Belgium
Joining the St George’s, University of London medical programme in Nicosia hasopened up several doors of opportunity. As a medical school it offers a well developed and intriguing way of delivering medical education to students. We learn theory and actually apply it on the spot, which I find to be one of the best ways to deliver the material; it is essential in allowing us to emphasise what we learn.
Carlos Sader, MBBS, Class of 2019, Lebanon
Having the opportunity to study medicine abroad, specifically in Cyprus, was an opportunity that I could not turn down. The small scale classes ensure maximum individual attention allowing each one of us to flourish and reach our full potential. This is done under the wings of highly educated, easily approachable faculty, who are always willing to go the extra mile.
Athena Michaelides, MD, Class of 2020, South Africa
The MD-6 year programme is extremely organized and has a competitive student body. It is really easy for international students to adapt because we get a lot of support from all the school’s staff as well as students from the second year.
Sjoefn Ragnarsdottir, MD, Class of 2021, Iceland
What I find exciting about this specific programme is that at the end of our course we have opportunities in both Europe and USA. Having classmates with nationalities spanning from Iceland to South Africa, one can easily see the benefits and how it helps the students grow in different aspects than just academically.
Alexandra Christina Popa, MD, Class of 2021, Cyprus
Warm weather, buzzing cafes and beautiful sunsets, Nicosia welcomed me home on the first day of my arrival in Cyprus. The international atmosphere that both the city and the University of Nicosia provided me with was one of excitement to learn about new cultures, an integral part of becoming a doctor.
Jecomien Nel, MD, Class of 2021, South Africa
I take pride in being a part of the University of Nicosia medical school community. The opportunities that we have been granted as medical students are innumerable. The experiences we have been offered in and out of lectures are indescribable. And the people that have stepped into our lives and not only provided us with their knowledge and experiences, but also became friends to us, are simply one of a kind.
Ahmet Ozyigit, MD, Class of 2020, Cyprus
I came to the St George’s programme in Cyprus because I heard that it offers many opportunities to get clinical practice early during the degree.
William Verbist, MBBS, Class of 2020, Belgium
The program was excellent and pursuing it turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. I unreservedly recommend the MSc in Family Medicine to every GP. I can also say work at my practices has increased in volume since I completed the course as today’s patients—because they are able to cross-reference information online—are in a better position to realize if their doctor is up to date on new medical developments or not.
