Medical Expenses and Insurance

The University operates a Medical Center staffed by qualified medical and paramedical personnel. The Clinic physicians are not obligated to make house calls, but, if circumstances permit, they will usually respond to emergency calls. They will refer students to specialists if necessary. As an EMU student you will be entitled to free checkups but you will have to pay for medications which are bought from pharmacies outside the campus. Laboratory tests and dentistry require the student to pay a nominal fee.

Students can also use the Gazimagusa Public Hospital. There are also private hospitals where the cost of a visit is around $30. We strongly advise students to take out medical insurance which will reimburse you for medical and hospital expenses you may incur in Cyprus and elsewhere overseas before they leave home.
TRNC HEALTH INSURANCE FOR ALL EMU

Students According to the protocol signed between the Eastern Mediterranean University and T.R North Cyprus Ministry of Health and Social Aid, Health Insurance will be issued to all registered overseas students. This health insurance will cover the following health services provided by health institutions registered under the Ministry of Health and Social Aid.

a. Use of the Emergency Services/ First Aid of the hospitals will be free of charge.

b. Examinations in policlinics and diagnosis services (laboratory services, X-ray) will be free of charge. However, students will have to pay for other advance screening techniques (I.e. MRI, topography) and the cost of prescriptions.

c. Pulling out tooth or filling services of the dentists will be free of charge.

d. For treatments which require hospitalization, all necessary treatment and medicine during the hospitalization period will be free of charge.

e. Students will need to pay all other services that are not mentioned above and who had services from health institutions that are not registered under the Ministry of Health and Social Aid.

f. The Ministry of Health and Social Aid will be responsible from any inconveniences or problems caused in services.



Alcohol, Drugs and Smoking

No alcoholic beverages or illegal drugs, including marijuana, may be used on the campus, in the EMU dormitories, or at University-sponsored activities. Nor should they ever be consumed in public on the streets. (Marijuana is, of course, illegal, as are other harder drugs.) Turkish Cypriot law prescribes severe punishments for persons found guilty of using illegal drugs and even more severe penalties for those selling them. A foreigner in North Cyprus is subject to Cypriot law, and neither embassies nor Eastern Mediterranean University can not protect a student from arrest or prosecution under Cypriot law.

Non-smokers will find themselves in a more liberal smoking environment in Cyprus, when compared to the West. While it is against the law to smoke in government offices, supermarkets and stores, you will find that many cafes and restaurants do not have a no smoking area. If you ask politely, for someone not to smoke in your presence you may find success. "Politely" is the operative word here. The empowerment that non-smokers have achieved in the West has not come to Cyprus yet- although we are showing improvement! Smokers, on the other hand, will most likely find themselves in paradise, enjoying with vicarious glee the ability to light up anywhere and anytime the nicotine demon begs to be fed (though not in EMU classrooms or corridors please). If you're a smoker, your main problem will be that you may smoke more than before, and when you return home, part of the reverse culture-shock will be learning the social niceties of having to refrain from smoking in public.

EMU has a policy which prohibits smoking in closed and restricted areas (inside all university buildings, including offices) however you are bound to find a cloud of smoke in the cafeterias.

Is it possible that the person who is receiving treatment in the occupied area on the NHS is a convicted criminal?

It would make some sort of sense.

From... List of unrecognized higher education accreditation organizations

Many, but not all, of the entities in the list below are considered to be fraudulent accreditation mills that were set up to help diploma mills lure students and whose "accreditation" has no legal or academic value. Some other listed entities are religious accreditors, whose accreditation may have doctrinal significance but lacks recognized academic value.[7] Also included are some organizations that do not offer educational accreditation but have been falsely identified as accrediting bodies by organizations that claim to have been accredited by them. A notable example of this last type is UNESCO. UNESCO has no authority to recognize or accredit higher education institutions or agencies.[5] Nonetheless, because diploma mills have claimed false UNESCO accreditation, UNESCO itself has published warnings against education organizations that claim UNESCO recognition or affiliation.
