Studying for a degree takes a lot of energy, time and commitment. However, there are always opportunities to relax, enjoy yourself and engage with your fellow-students, not only between university classes but also in activities outside your study curriculum. Social Clubs & Student Activities are a good way to interact with others, to get to know the city and the society you are part of and .. to have fun!
The UCIPS organizes, together with its students, a number of Social Clubs & Student Activities, which are free of charge for all UCIPS students & alumni! In the following you may find several activities that took place at the UCIPS facilities over the years.
EMHS Society- Ethical Marketing in Health and Science: The EMHS Society is founded by two young and ambitious healthcare professionals and candidates for the MSc in Biotechnology, Bioeconomy & Law of the International Hellenic University with the vision of creating a positive change in global health and science. Their passion is driving their motivation and commitment to a cutting-edge, human-centric and inclusive healthcare model. Though this joint effort, they aim to establish international collaborations, raise awareness around ethics in health and science as well as introduce world-class initiatives to engage world-class stakeholders from the healthcare and scientific industries who share the same vision with them!
