DESCRIPTION AND METHODOLOGIES
University of Nicosia has taken initiatives to respond to the ongoing European migrant crisis. Those initiatives are focusing on supporting individual refugees and migrants, while also working with public bodies to improve support services.
To that extent UNIC has awarded a series of scholarships to refugees and immigrants. In addition, the Medical School’s Mobile Clinic travels around the country twice a month, offering free diagnostic tests and examinations to people in need such as residents in remote areas, senior citizens, refugees and asylum seekers, as well as the general public at charitable events. Furthermore, medical students raise awareness among teenagers on specific health issues (effects of smoking, sex education and eating disorders) through presentations.
