Cancer Biology at EUC
The MSc in Cancer Biology at EUC is the first program of its kind in Cyprus.  Based on the latest developments in the field, the program provides students with an in-depth understanding of the complex mechanisms underlying cancer development.  Students are exposed to novel preventative, diagnostic and therapeutic approaches using new technologies to deliver personalized medical treatment to cancer patients. The degree is targeted to students with undergraduate degrees in biology, biomedical sciences, medicine, pharmacology, radiotherapy, nursing or other biology-oriented fields.  Chemistry, physics or computer science graduates with a biology background may apply.  Students are supported by faculty who are experts in their field, distinguished visiting professors from abroad and modern laboratory facilities on campus. Through the Erasmus+ program, students are able to participate in high-quality research projects and thesis work with collaborating laboratories abroad.

SPECIFIC ADMISSIONS CRITERIA:
  • All applicants must have successfully completed a Biomedical Sciences, Health Sciences, Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) or Physical Sciences-related (with adequate Biology background)* undergraduate degree from a recognized academic institution.
  • Applicants should hold an undergraduate degree with a Grade Point Average (G.P.A.) of 2.50 (or equivalent; e.g. “Second Class Honours” for UK Universities or “Very Good” for Greek and Cypriot Universities).
  • As the official language of instruction is English, proficiency in written and spoken English is absolutely required. Thus, students should provide documentation showing high level of English fluency (i.e. TOEFL score of at least 550 (213 computer-based, 79 internet-based), or English IGCSE with grade C or above, or IELTS with a score of 6.5 or above GCE examination grade of C or above)**.
  • The University reserves the right to conduct interviews of applicants to strengthen the selection process, when necessary.
*In the event of inadequate Biology background, the Committee may allow the completion of Biology foundation course(s) (e.g. “Introduction to Human Biology”, “Cell Biology”, “Molecular Biology”) prior to admission. **In the event in which such documentation is not available, students are obligated to take an English Placement Test and improve their language skills prior to being admitted to the programme.
