Higher education in Greece for the local population and foreigners, EU citizens, is conditionally free and is provided only by public universities. However, this is only the case when it comes to teaching in Greek. Also on the training students are provided with accommodation, meals, necessary literature, health insurance and even travel discounts. The only thing that will have to be paid is an administrative fee of about 700 euros once a year. For everyone else, education in Greece is paid.
However, there is one nuance that allows students to improve their financial situation. Thus, the very fact that a student is studying in Greece, automatically provides him with a residence permit in Europe for this period and allows you to legally earn money in your spare time, as well as to move around the European Union.
Another important advantage for international students is the lack of entrance exams. Competitive selection among those wishing to study in Greece is based on the school certificate. Well, you can apply to 20 different faculties at once and not necessarily from the same university. However, it should be borne in mind that the documents are not sent to universities, but to the state admissions committee, which works under the Ministry of Education. Consideration of her candidacies is carried out only in the period July 20-30
As for language training, the training in Greece requires good knowledge of the Greek language (at no lower B2), and for some specialties even English. To obtain a certificate, you will need to be tested at the University of Thessaloniki or Athens. For those who do not know the language, there are special language training courses of different complexity and duration of programs at the end of which also pass exams.
