About

Here at Medicine (MBBS) programme at University of Nicosia clinical and communication skills are given the importance they deserve, simulation being a key teaching aid – whether simulated patients, manikins, or complex state-of-the art computer-based simulations. 

In the Medicine programme E-learning is another important learning tool, students having access to the St George’s intranet site and library resources. The scientific basis of medicine is strongly emphasised throughout the course, but particularly in the first two years. 

The school in Cyprus is equipped with a brand new dissection room to learn anatomy using prosected specimens, imaging, anatomical models and computer-assisted learning.

The first two years of the course take place in Cyprus, the last two years in state-of-the-art hospitals in the United States, Israel or Cyprus. Students will graduate with a degree from St George’s Hospital Medical School, a constituent college of the University of London. This is a truly exciting opportunity for international students to undertake an identical programme, sit the same assessments, and gain the same degree but learn in different, and highly respected, clinical environments. 

The links between the University of Nicosia and St George’s are strong and fruitful. St George’s faculty and staff make regular visits to Nicosia to observe teaching, participate in assessments, take part in planning meetings and ensure the quality of the course provision. This is an exciting project for our two universities and we look forward to welcoming you on the course.

Accreditation

The MBBS programme is offered under the degree-awarding powers of St George’s, University of London, and shares the same recognition in the United Kingdom and almost all of the rest of the world. St George’s was the first medical school in the United Kingdom to offer a graduate entry programme in medicine and is the only independently governed medical school in that country.
