Students are taught and trained in Cyprus. Teaching is conducted in English, with a minimum work load of 360 ECTS of the education and training required to complete the Bachelor of Medicine Degree over six years. No ‘premedical’ coursework is required as the program of study provides an all-inclusive, full basic sciences thematic unit. The early exposure of students to clinical experiences emphasizes the importance of the basic sciences to its clinical application and serves to stimulate students’ interests in medicine. Graduates of European University Cyprus School of Medicine can exercise their profession in any country of the European Union and other international health care systems.
