University of Nicosia Medical School 2020 entryWatch
I just got an offer from the University of Nicosia in Cyprus to start this October and was wondering if anyone else on here has applied/thinking of applying/gotten an offer?
Are you a UK student? Post A-level application or school leaver? Sorry I'm just excited to talk to someone else interested since nearly no one I talk to has heard of the medical school.
What was the interview like? What questions do they ask etc if you don't mind me asking
Nothing surprised me or threw me off. Your responses are recorded and sent to other assesors, and you can have a few seconds between questions to clear your head whilst the camera isn't recording.
Hope that was helpful, honestly don't worry about it. Have you gotten an invitation?
Hi! I just got an offer too but I'm still not sure whether to accept it or not. There are other universities I want to apply to in Europe and since I'm still not 100% about the uni sure I don't know if I'm willing to pay the tuition deposit to secure my place. On the other hand, it's a safe choice to have in case I don't get in anywhere else. Are you going to accept it?
Ok I think I will probably do the same, because it looks like a pretty good choice. I'm not a UK student, but I originally wanted to study in the UK but I didnt get any offers. UCAS extra is that an option to add another university choice if you didnt get accepted anywhere else?
My name is Habib and i am a 4th year MD at university of Nicosia. I did my bachelors degree at Coventry Uni in the UK and moved to Cyprus for Medicine.
I had some free time due to the COVID lockdown so i thought i'd come on here and find students who want to study at UNIC and answer any questions
Let me know if you have any questions and i am more than happy to answer them.
So yes, i would definitely recommend it.
When i came 4 years ago i was definitely skeptical, i wasn't sure what i was getting myself into. However, i can safely say now that i do not regret a singe decision i made.
The doctors, professors, facilities, library - everything is what you would want it to be in a medical school. Could there be improvements in certain professors? yes, but what university doesn't need improvements.
The anatomy lab has enough cadavers for everyone and if not they split the groups to the according sizes. The clinical labs where we practice OSCEs is really good. The way they programme is designed - the first 3.5 years being 80% lecture/tutorial/PBL based and 20% being clinical practice. Then the shift to 4th year + where its 95% clinical is really good. Even the 20% clinical in years 1-3 are so good - you technically learn all the different kinds of clinical examinations.
Year 1 is a bit boring because it is bio, chem, physics etc.. so you just have to push through that - its mainly there to filter those who won't be able to deal with the pressure.
Our first graduating cohort is this year and if there are any updates i will let you know
If you have any specific questions, do let me know.
