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, Class of 2020, Belgium
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, 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, 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, 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, Class of 2020, Cyprus

Career Prospects

Graduates who are from one of the countries that constitute the European Economic Area or Switzerland will be eligible to apply to EEA member states (and Switzerland)  to practise medicine. Each member state has its own regulations as to which stage of its training programme you will enter, and any additional requirements that you will need to demonstrate (such as language proficiency).

For as long as the UK remains within the European Union, our degree will be recognised in that country and you will be able to apply for Full Registration with the UK General Medical Council (GMC).  Future arrangements will be dependent on the terms by which the UK withdraws from the EU.

Please note that different arrangements apply to graduates who are not from EEA countries or Switzerland, and you should seek further information from your Admissions Advisor about practising medicine in Europe.

To practice in countries outside of the EEA/Switzerland, graduates will need to meet any other requirements of the country in which they apply for licensure.

Our Admissions Advisors can provide further information on your career options with this MD degree.
