December Speaker - Valia Tsiakala

An exciting new pathway into Medicine has been developed for DLD students on our Science Foundation Programme
9 Dec 2019
Written by Sarah Wyn Jones

This week at DLD we welcomed Valia Tsiakala from the University of Nicosia (UNIC) to talk about the benefits of studying Medicine at the largest university in Cyprus. UNIC have developed relationships with some of the best hospitals in the world for employment after graduation and the opportunity for students to develop surgical skills early in their studies with access to human cadavers. DLD College have developed a special pathway for our Science Foundation Programme students to progress to Medicine with UNIC over the last 6 months and more recently one of Yr 13 A level students have already received an interview for 2020 entry. We look forward to developing this relationship with UNIC in the future as a potential pathway for our students to progress to further study in this highly competitive field.
