Overview

The Biomedical Sciences programme from University of Nicosia is an integrated programme committed to promote instruction of core theory, practice and research principles of biomedical sciences as well as to promote the teaching of clinical specialities (modalities) in one of the following fields: Immunology, Microbiology, Clinical Biochemistry or Hematology.

To begin with, the programme aims to enable graduates to specialize in Immunology (this application). In due course, concentration courses in the other fields (i.e. Microbiology, Clinical Biochemistry and Hematology) will be added to the programme, giving the option to graduates to study and specialize in one or more areas if they wish.

Career Prospects:

Biomedical science has to play an important role in healthcare. The component subjects taught are in the forefront of scientific research and, therefore, the graduates of the programme will be able to understand current discoveries, controversies and concerns regarding human health and diseases. 

The programme graduates, therefore, can be employed in various areas in the public and private health related sectors since their education covers both, the biological and medical science. In addition, completion of this programme can be considered as part of the 9 year minimum postgraduate training for Biomedical Laboratory Scientist that is required for registration of specialist expertise towards licensing to practice and direct a Bioscience/Clinical Laboratory.

Overall based on the core courses and specialization courses that students can take, it will qualify them upon graduation to work or provide service or do research in the relevant field, at a private or public hospital or at pharmaceutical industry medical or research laboratories.
