Marios Hadjicharalambous 

‘’Studying at CII for the Msc Environmental Health was a tremendous experience both in academic and personal aspects of my life. By gaining knowledge from experts on their field Professors (from Harvard and CUT) and expanding my knowledge on health sciences such as Risk Assessment, Air Pollution, Epidemiology, Bio-statistics and many more subjects helped me on choosing the correct path for my career. My opinion for CII is that it is like a thinking-tank, involving both academic staff and students promote new opinions, new procedures about environmental health sciences and promotes environmental awareness through each graduation. CII is also a multicultural center, since it takes candidates from all over the world, so we had the opportunity as a class of 2011 to meet and interact with people from countries abroad such as Nigeria, Italy, Egypt... and adapt some aspects from their culture. I would definitely suggest to anyone that has an interest in environmental studies to study at CII’’.

Marianna Christodoulou

‘’Obtaining the MSc in Environmental Health has proven to be both an enjoyable and invaluable experience. The knowledge I acquired whilst undertaking the Course had been directly transferable in my role as Environmental and Lab Supervisor enabling me to apply both Environmental and Health understanding in a constantly evolving sector. Today, a year after graduating I find myself in London pursuing a PhD with confidence. I would undeniably recommend the Environmental Health MSc to prospective students!’’

Alessandra Lafranconi 

Four years ago I was in Cyprus at CII, with Rafael, Muhammad, Marios, Popi, Andrea, Maria, Olusegun, Galatia, Christos, Constantia, and many other classmates and friends. Suzanna was our teaching assistant. Rodosthenis was ‘’the-student-from-last-year-who-is-going-to-Harvard’’.The year at CII gave me knowledge (as Medical Doctor, I didn't know much about Environmental Health!), gave me real-life soft-skills (everybody knew I hated group-work; by the end of the year, my ability to work together improved a lot!), gave me good friends (my best fellowstudent, Eva, is now my wedding-planner - yes, I am getting married next August!) I am now enrolled in the Residency Program of Hygiene and Preventive Medicine at the University of Milano Bicocca. The M.Sc. in Environmental Health gives me a "competitive advantage" (as Nick Ashford would have called it). Also, in the last years I have been called to participate into two big projects (Global Burden of Disease, WHO; UpsideDown Protect, EC) because of the expertise I developed at CII. The year at CII was rough, but def. worth it! Do it :) ‘’

Michele Padovan

Since I was in Elementary school, Science fascinated me. Laboratory classes and the habit to watch documentaries leaded me to achieve my degree in Biological Sciences. After I obtained my first degree in Biology, working at the Institute of Tropical Medicine of University of Sao Paulo I heard about the MSc Program from Harvard School of Public Health in association with Cyprus University of Technology. So I decided to apply since the thought of get a Master degree was latent. The desire of working with Public Health leaded me in to apply. Through this MSc program in Environmental and Public Health I had the chance to develop my knowledge and become familiar with different scientific approaches such as Risk Assessment analysis, Exposure Assessment, Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Toxicology, Environmental Law, Occupational Health, Genetics and Public Health. 
The multidisciplinary and multicultural experience that I had in Cyprus was unforgettable.
At CII I made amazing friends that I will carry for the rest of my life, and I was privileged to attend classes with world-renowned Professors which were also inspiring people to us.
In 2012 I gained my Master degree and came back to Brazil with more accurate abilities and skills but my enthusiasm and need to start a new project. Now I am a 2nd year phD student from the Faculty of Medicine of University of Sao Paulo, and currently I am doing the second half of my research in the UK, at Queen Mary University of London with the major reference of my Research.
I highly recommend CII and its Programs to prospective students.
Good luck guys and enjoy this unique opportunity!

Rodos Rodosthenous

It was back in 2008 when I started exploring options for the next step in my career. As a graduating Molecular Biologist and Geneticist, I realized that the etiology of many of the ‘modern world’ diseases could not be explained by genetics. Very quickly, I developed a keen interest in gene-environment interactions and magically one day my online search landed on CII’s website. In 2009, I was enrolled in the M.Sc. program of Environmental Health together with 12 more, great students from all around the world. 
The year at CII was a unique experience by all means! Multidisciplinary, multicultural and professional are three words that describe the environment at CII. I had the pleasure to learn from professors with global impact in their fields, participate in real life problem-solving projects and collaborate with some extremely qualified and enthusiastic students. CII offered me the opportunity to learn from the best and opened new doors in my career. But most importantly, CII nurtured me with the right attitude and way of thinking to solving any problem in my career and personal life. This is the key to a successful career and for this I am very grateful.
Today, I’m a 4th year Doctoral Candidate at the Harvard School of Public Health where I focus on developing new non-invasive prognostic markers of environment-disease interactions. Undoubtedly, CII has played a critical role in my career so far. I encourage everyone who’s interested in Environmental and Public Health, Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Environmental Policy to apply. CII is a true ‘hidden gem’!

Katerina Stylianou

In 2011, as a graduating mathematician, my dream was to be able to use my knowledge in a human health related setting. Three years after, I do not only have the opportunity to follow my dream by pursuing a PhD in Environmental Health Sciences at the University of Michigan School of Public Health, one of the leading universities in the field, but also find myself becoming part of a vibrant interdisciplinary community that aims to to improve health and avoid harm. I would have never had achieved this if not for CII!!
I am one of the fortunate CII alumni that had the opportunity to benefit from both MS programs offered at CII (Epidemiology and Biostatistics & Environmental Health). Each program offers a unique opportunity for both scientific and personal development. Starting from the program curriculum, all the courses equip students with the necessary tools required for pursuing any career in the public health sector while at the same time challenge your scientific and personal abilities. Besides the opportunity of gaining knowledge in many public health related topics (Risk Assessment, Water/Air Pollution, Exposure Assessment, Biostatistics, Epidemiology just to name a few) from the top experts in the field, the structure and intensive nature of the courses and program itself promote and enhance the development of skills such as time-management and team-work. Finally, the programs do not only contribute advanced knowledge and training but since students from all over the world with various backgrounds and expertise participate, this is a tremendous opportunity to find yourself in a very diverse environment and experience different cultures, built new friendships, create memories on a personal level and challenge your thinking and perspective on a scientific level.
I would highly recommend CII and its programs to anyone interested in graduate level studies in public health!


Lia Markogiannaki

Hello CII allumni. It's been a year and a half that left CII, where I was participated in the Environmental Health master class. While the most courses were rather demanding and in general the program quite intensive, now that these difficult days passed I have only good memories. First of all, the aforementioned master course provides a great opportunity to post-graduate students from relevant expertise fields, to be introduced to the basic meaning of Environmental Health within short but sufficient in knowledge courses of variable scientific sectors. I would definitely recommend this master not only for the knowledge but also for the important skills that I acquired. Trying to put them in a hierarchy, some of them were the ability to adapt quick in demanding and difficult situations, the time-management and the team-work in a multinational and multicultural environment. The most important of all though is that during this year I had the blessing to meet great people, starting from the professors and ending to my classmates. For the time, I am back to Greece where I come from, unfortunately under the crisis circumstances which translate into lack of job offers and opportunities. However, the Environmental Health master helped me to improve my expertise. Furthermore,my practicum research that I conducted in CII, was recently published under the surveillance and guidance of my professor, Dr.Makris which was undoubtedly an advantage for my C.V. So, it's been a year since I started working in a consultancy company that deals with european fundings for a number of sectors, including environment. To sum up, the experience that I gained in CII is always in my mind condensed in the phrase "work hard,play hard and you will never lose".

Pia Mhanna and Antoine Gegrayel

Hello CII from Montreal, 
My husband Antoine Gebrayel and I are both master graduates of CII.. Studying Environmental and Public health in the Cyprus international institute was such a nice, memorable and once-in- a lifetime experience on all aspects.
Antoine Gebrayel and I are both so grateful to the privilege that this program offered us. Starting from the experienced professors (both CII and Harvard), going to the various courses that we took and the rich program. We were exposed to a lot of topics and learnt a lot. In addition, Antoine and I will never forget the beautiful country Cyprus, the memorable moments with our friends there, and the fun we had. 
Overall, we think it was an amazing experience and encourage new students to take the most of it.
