“The University of Nicosia Medical School inspired me from the first day. Beside the state-of-the-art lecture rooms, there are sophisticated laboratories for anatomy, clinical skills and simulation, and the library provides access to various international medical resources. The lifestyle in Cyprus is very relaxed. Apart from the ideal Mediterranean climate, people here are really warm and welcoming. In addition, having classmates from diverse nationalities and cultures adds to and intensifies my experience.”

Yasir Ali Al-Shehhi, Oman, Medicine - Class of 2022

“Moving to Cyprus in order to join UNIC was one of the biggest stepping-stones in my life. UNIC provided me with far more than just education. The Careers Office at UNIC is who assisted me in finding my first job at Nielsen almost a decade ago. From a fresh graduate in an entry-level position, today, I lead Global Consumer Research for Multi-billion Dollar Brands while working with C-level executives and representatives of The Fortune 100 Most Powerful Women. At UNIC, you are made to see that the sky is not the limit!”

Anna Rangelova, Bulgaria , Tourism, Leisure and Events Management - Class of 2008, MBA - Class of 2010

“Spending my student years in Cyprus and at UNIC was an important landmark in both my personal and professional development. The international environment and the opportunity to combine first-class studies and training with practical knowledge was a great approach and an extraordinary experience, which fully prepared me both for the hurdles one faces as an adult and the challenges in the globalised business world we now live in.”
