The CSMM is housed within the premises of the Cyprus Institute of Neurology & Genetics in a thriving part of Nicosia, with easy access to a whole host of amenities and within easy reach of the city centre. We look forward to the expansion of the CING premises over the next five years, which will create a research and innovation centre, providing more laboratories for CSMM students to join.
The students of the Cyprus School of Molecular Medicine can choose from a great range of private apartments and houses within walking distance from the School. Other services and amenities available within walking distance from the School, include a mall, supermarkets, coffee shops, restaurants, clubs, banks etc.
The Education Office can provide information on local rental properties in the area, upon request.
Open channels of communication with the student population are very important to the CSMM. We therefore highly encourage student representation. At the beginning of each Academic year, all students from each Program will be requested to elect one representative who will participate in meetings with the Education Office, often in the presence of the Dean, in order to discuss student matters. We welcome communication with students and we encourage you to get involved in student life at the CING and CSMM!
Student life is an integral part of education, offering you unique prospects for personal growth, as well as development of leadership and communication skills. We are committed to providing the necessary support and resources to ensure that you will enjoy your time studying at the CSMM.
Postgraduate education is a demanding and intensive period in a student’s life, leaving little time for recreational activities and life out of the lab! However, especially for international students, it is worth spending some time exploring the many opportunities which Cyprus has to offer in terms of leisure activities. The Education Office can offer travel guide booklets and maps to international students for this purpose.
The Education Office organises various types of student events such as orientation events, team building activities, graduation ceremonies and graduation parties as well as seasonal events where applicable.
Careers Office services such as CV Workshops and interview skills seminars are also organised by the Education Office in cooperation with the Institute’s Human Resources Department. The aim of the Careers Office is to assist students and alumni in preparation for all career related issues.
