We are here today to promote our university and establish the right network in Saudi Arabia.

“We are here to highlight Medical and Veterinary study programs. It is an excellent opportunity to meet and engage with Saudi students and officials from interested entities.”

“In (UNIC) our main interest is to make it easier for the students. Thus, we are here today to take the opportunity to meet with them, explain our study programs and to develop this relationship.”

Koudounias noted that the next fall semester begins in September, hence it gives the students time to be prepared where (UNIC) offers them coaching to guide them in whatever they need.

“To become a medical doctor, you need to give emphasis on biology if you are aspiring to become a veterinary doctor you will need more emphasis on chemistry, which can be provided as foundations by the university to ensure that students are going on the course and meeting our entry requirements.”

Koudounias also accentuated the value of the regular virtual and physical open day events held by (UNIC) where students meet with faculty members and staff who explain to them more details about the curriculum, clinical training and laboratory work.

Speaking about the curriculum of the Medical and Veterinary study programs, Koudounias described it as very innovative in the sense that it keeps a balance between what is being taught in a classroom and the clinical training that takes place in one of the (UNIC) partner hospitals for medical students or clinical partners and farms for veterinary students.

Being asked about the (UNIC) collaboration with Saudi Universities or related organizations, Koudounias described the university's participation in the International University Expo as the first step towards future cooperation with diverse organizations such as medical and

veterinary related associations and to pave the way and raise awareness about (UNIC) and to welcome Saudi students as well as other nationalities.

On whether (UNIC) offers internship programs , Koudounias stated that the university prefers to enroll students from the first early semester to be able to follow the curriculum and normally (UNIC) does not have transfer students from different universities which is done for the benefit of students who enroll from day one into the program to take the opportunity to pattern into the curriculum, subject and university life.
