Student Support Services
Students may find useful information about the latest local news, developments and regulations set by the local government in the CyI Updates and Community Messages page on the CyI website which is regularly updated.
If you are eligible for GESY, you should make sure you are registered with a doctor so you know whom to contact if you get sick. If you are an international student from a country outside the EU, and you fall ill, you should contact a doctor covered by your medical insurance plan.
The local coronavirus hotline can be reached at tel. no 1420. Anyone who suspects that they have the coronavirus should call this number. If symptoms are not serious, you should contact your personal doctor.
If you have tested positive for COVID-19, please make sure to notify the Office of Graduate Studies.
- After working hours, please contact directly the Health & Safety Officer
Students as well as staff members can report any work-related matter/problem they may face or any personal problem related with the situation we are facing, and CyI can provide assistance. Institutional confidentiality will be held to the maximum degree allowed by law.
