1) You’ll get a degree from St George’s, University of London
Graduates of this programme are awarded a UK Primary Medical Qualification while studying in Cyprus!
Here’s what students from the UK have to say about their experiences…
“I studied both of my previous degrees in my hometown back in Scotland. With my medical degree I wanted to experience a new place and a new culture. Studying abroad whilst gaining a British qualification was the perfect option for me.”
Jennifer Yau, Class of 2019 (UK)
“I saw the St George’s programme as an amazing opportunity to get to immerse myself in a different way of life alongside my studies, believing I would be much richer for the experience. Not only am I living somewhere that is very foreign to me, but I also get the chance to study alongside people from all over the world, all with different knowledge and perspectives that enables us all to have a more rounded character which will be invaluable when we graduate and are practising medicine.”
Natasha Grace, Class of 2018 (UK)
2) There are Clinical Placements in Three Countries: United States, Cyprus and Israel
You’ll get the opportunity to spend the final two years of your degree at the Baltimore Washington Medical Center in the USA or at Limassol General Hospital in Cyprus.
US and Canadian students may also complete the final two years at Swedish Covenant Hospital in Chicago while Israeli students can complete their final two years at the Sheba Medical Center in Israel.
“Throughout my studies I have been exposed to specialties in various clinics and hospitals, both in public and private medicine, consistently being taught by consultants at the top of their respective fields.”
The course is structured around problem-based learning and you’ll gain clinical experience from the first month! The curriculum is identical to the SGUL MBBS curriculum – even exams are taken at the same time as those in the UK.
“I have already learned so much, both in terms of clinical science and skills but also in the social side of medicine from both lessons and the diverse cohort that I am in. The core learning process of PBL is incredibly conducive to success and the emphasis on self-directed learning introduces accountability to us early on.”
