MSc Postgraduate Programs


The Cyprus School of Molecular Medicine offers accredited MSc Postgraduate Programs. The Programs are offered in Full-Time (one year) and Part-Time (two years) modes of study. Each postgraduate program consists of five taught courses; four courses are core courses and one is elective. MSc Postgraduate Programs also include a research or a library project.

A minimum number of 50 ECTS from the taught courses (including tutorial sessions) of the program and a minimum number of 40 ECTS from the research or library project must be completed while enrolled on the MSc program.

MSc in Medical Genetics (accredited)

The Medical Genetics MSc programme is aimed at clinicians and scientists who wish to gain an in depth understanding of Medical Genetics and the several applications within the wider field of Biomedical Sciences.

The course MG101 is designed to help understand the gene and its function, DNA structure, mechanisms of transcription and translation, gene expression, cell division, patterns of inheritance, pedigree analysis and genetic counselling. MG102 covers all the issues of human cytogenetics and genomics and targets the behaviour of small and large size genetic changes and their pathology aiming at the understanding of medical genomics with special emphasis on the investigation of the human genome in medical research and practice. MG103 teaches the great majority of methods that are applied in Medical Genetics with relevant application examples aiming to help the student understand, interpret and critically evaluate laboratory research and diagnostic results. MG104 focuses on the biochemical aspects of genetic diseases. All the above courses pay special attention to examples from the clinically relevant activities of the CING Departments which is the advantage of this programme as compared to those taught at purely academic institutions. Finally, the students have to take a research module which can be a library project, however the advantage of CSMM is that it enables students to take a laboratory project and work along with the many activities of the CING departments.

Students will be able to get an in depth understanding of all aspects of Medical Genetics. Clinicians will be able to use this knowledge for better management of their future patients with an inherited disease and targeting requests for diagnostic genetic testing. Scientists will be able to competently work in a research or diagnostic laboratory dealing with the multiple aspects of Medical Genetics. In addition, the programme will enable graduates to play a major role in future research programmes on Medical Genetics and Translational Medicine, both cutting-edge research topics.

MSc in Molecular Medicine (accredited)

The program promotes excellence and educates students on the significant issues in Molecular Medicine. The challenging curricula includes mandatory taught courses which cover the main aspects of Molecular Medicine and a number of elective courses enabling students to broaden their knowledge on other fields of Molecular Medicine. The MSc Research or Library Projects on various aspects of Molecular Medicine are conducted in the state-of-the-art Departments and Clinics of the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics (CING). As an International Centre of Excellence, CING carries out pioneering research in Medical Genetics and therefore provides MSc students with the knowledge and tools to complete a competitive Research or Library Project. MSc Students have the opportunity to attend courses in innovative fields which include Molecular Basis of Monogenic Diseases, Molecular Basis of Complex Diseases, Neurosciences & Neurogenetics and Gene & Cell Therapy.
