Dear Prospective Students,

I am proud to introduce you to the School of the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics (CING). The CING School offers postgraduate education to a relatively small number of MSc and PhD students through cutting-edge programmes, much sought by students worldwide. We offer our Medical Genetics, Molecular Medicine and Neuroscience programmes at the MSc and the PhD levels and our Biomedical Research programme at the MSc level.

These programmes offer a unique teaching and learning environment that triggers the students' passion and stimulates their interest and imagination. The CING School provides the springboard for training the next generation of scientists in an environment that fosters excellence and ensures a high standard of education.

Please take time to go through our prospectus. You will soon appreciate that our innovative MSc and PhD programmes cover a broad spectrum of exciting disciplines and offer a combination of taught courses and research in our highly advanced laboratories. The CING programmes are specialised, but each has multi-disciplinarity and complementarity to expose you to the latest advances in the field and inform you about the challenges ahead. Our academic staff is experienced and passionate about their work, so we promise you a high calibre education that will impact your life and shape your future career. A unique feature of our programmes is that students are exposed to the everyday applications of new knowledge and thus obtain first-hand experience in real-life diagnostic and research applications.  CING School students are exposed to quality education and execute their projects alongside experienced scientists and doctors of the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics. Our programmes are intense and comprehensive in areas with rapid advances. They aim to stimulate the students and present the great potential genetics and molecular biology hold for significant advances in the medical field. Students benefit from the vast experience gained by the CING staff, who have extensive expertise in these challenging fields.

Many scholarships are also available to MSc and PhD students based on academic merit. In addition, CING students benefit from the ERASMUS+ mobility actions, and we are proud that many of our graduates are employed soon after graduation. For further information about our programmes do not hesitate to contact our very able staff in the academic office.

I invite you to join the CING School community and experience the organisation's professionalism, stimulating, and challenging environment first-hand.
