I am extremely happy with the education I received here in EMU. I strongly believe that I made the right choice. We belong to the grand EMU family. On leaving this beautiful institution, I am a bit excited and at the same time sad.
I feel lucky to be part of Eastern Mediterranean University. We are also living the happiness of belonging to the first group of students finishing the first phase of our studies here in EMU. Although we are leaving now, we will also be a part of EMU.
