The academic staff of the School holds high quality qualifications, the required knowledge and experience thus, guiding students into constantly improving their knowledge, upgrading their skills as well as adopting the necessary attitude and positive behaviour both towards patients and users of the health care services in general.

At our University, theoretical teaching is conducted in small groups thus maximising the efficiency of the lesson. Additionally, the School has specialised and appropriately equipped clinical and pharmaceutical laboratories, where students can safely develop their skills. Furthermore, under the supervision and guidance of our qualified staff, students are able to apply their theoretical knowledge and skills in real life situations in hospitals, private clinics, health centres as well as pharmacies and the pharmaceutical industry. An awareness of research begins with undergraduate education programmes and further develops in postgraduate education programmes. Presentations in conferences and publications in internationally recognised journals depict the students’ research interests under the guidance of their professors.

Our postgraduate programmes aim at attracting graduates of tertiary education schools in relevant fields such as Health Sciences, Social Sciences, Law, Economics and Administration.  Upon completion of their studies, graduates will be equipped not only with a Postgraduate Title, but also with state-of-the-art knowledge, abilities and skills that will assist them both in their professional advancement and their academic career.

Justifiably, you will wonder why someone would choose to study at the School of Health Sciences of Frederick University. If you aim at offering services to fellow citizens, you are in the most suitable place.

Quality in education is our main aim. All programmes were designed and developed by distinguished scientists. Our postgraduate programmes are innovative both in Cyprus and Greece and address the modern challenges in health care. We educate scientists who will offer care to people thus, it is essential for them to receive care from the university and the academic staff during their studies.

We welcome our new students and we wish them the best of luck in their studies. To our continuing students, we wish a fruitful and productive academic year.
