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.

This, coupled with dedicated, caring and helpful faculty members, has facilitated the transition from high school to a university-level standard, maturity and professionalism. Living in multicultural and historical Nicosia has helped optimise this experience through the beautiful Mediterranean weather and delicious food along with its inhabitants’ kindness and helpfulness.

Studying medicine at the University of Nicosia is an opportunity to learn the concepts of medical science along with all the clinical skills that a good doctor must obtain.

During our first day, we got to see most of the medical school’s laboratories as well as the state- of- the- art facilities used for clinical training. However, what makes this place so special is not only the high level of education that it provides, but also the amazing student life that is on offer in Cyprus. The spectacular weather, good nightlife, and delicious Mediterranean food all contribute to a great experience.

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. In addition to this, we get to use state of the art facilities in a friendly and safe environment. This international program broadens horizons as one gets the opportunity to experience a variety of cultures in one classroom. The beautiful surroundings of Cyprus as well as the buzzing student life are bonuses that add to the overall student experience.

Coming all the way from Iceland, I think it’s wonderful to live in a country where there is almost always sun and good weather. It makes it really easy to wake up in the morning and go to school and it also lightens your mood.

Cyprus is a very relaxed environment. From my first day here the people of Cyprus have been really warm and welcoming. That’s why I felt immediately at home.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. One of the biggest pros of the programme is the wide range of nationalities and cultures because students come from all over the world. Here I can experience an adventure, expand my horizons and meet new people from different backgrounds who are driven and strive for the same goal: to help people.

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. The programme, despite being quite new, has already built a good reputation and if the students have any complaints, the staff takes into consideration every detail to help improve the programme in every way possible. Overall, the level is kept very professional, with many facilities (for example, the only medical school in Cyprus with cadavers), but also delightfully friendly.

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. With a small cohort of students, within a week everyone had become friends, and the experienced faculty quickly got us settled into our semester subjects. With innovative labs and lively campuses, I can’t wait to see what new experiences the University of Nicosia will bring into my life as a medical student!

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. UNic medical school is my home.
