Programme profile


This degree is awarded by St George's, University of London. St George's is recognised for excellence in medical education, receiving a score of 23 out of 24 in the UK's Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) inspection of medicine – the highest score of any London medical school.

Your course will be structured around problem-based learning (PBL), a method that presents you every week with a scenario or case history that you explore with a facilitator. PBL was chosen as the main learning method for the MBBS course due to the evidence indicating that it encourages learning in context, self-motivation, and active learning and thinking, rather than regurgitation. PBL also assists the development of a wide range of skills, such as problem-solving, communication, attitudinal, interpersonal, teamwork and leadership.

By covering the knowledge-base needed to understand different aspects of each problem, you will gradually acquire everything you need to practise medicine. Small groups of students learn together in their own ‘base room' with a designated tutor who is available to meet regularly and guide your studies.

Students enrolled in this programme at enjoy state-of-the-art learning facilities, the same as those used by their counterparts in London, coupled with community clinical experiences during Years 1 and 2 of the curriculum.

The first 2 years are spent studying in Cyprus, where in addition to training in the basic sciences to medicine, students will receive clinical exposure at select medical practices and medical centres. The next 2 years will be spent at our affiliated teaching hospitals: Mount Sinai and Jackson Park Hospitals in Chicago, the Sheba Medical Center in Israel, and Nicosia General Hospital in Cyprus

The main teaching hospital for the St. George’s, University of London programme at the University of Nicosia is the Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer, a university-affiliated tertiary referral hospital that serves as Israel's national medical centre in many fields.

Life Maintenance
Addressing the mechanisms, clinical manifestations and management of renal, gastrointestinal, liver and endocrine disorders which are either commonly encountered or illustrate important scientific or clinical issues.

Life Structure
Providing an understanding of the normal structure and function of the musculoskeletal system and skin at microscopic and macroscopic levels followed by the causes and consequences of injury and illness.
