Prepare all the necessary documentation you will be asked to prove you qualify for higher education studies. The documents you have to prepare are listed below:
Please, pay to attention to the fact that all documents must be translated into Greek and ratified for their authenticity by a Greek diplomatic authority abroad or by the Translation Service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Greece.
Although Greece is not a signatory country of the Lisbon Convention, if you successfully completed upper secondary studies, are in possession of a valid school leaving certificate and qualify for higher education studies in your home country, you may also qualify for higher education studies in Greece. However, you are requested to prove your level of knowledge of Greek and have studied another foreign language, such as English, Spanish, French or German. In some cases, you must also satisfy course specific requirements. For example, if you are applying for mathematical studies, you must have studied mathematics.
If you are applying for a master's program at university in Greece, you are required to be in possession of a relevant bachelor's or equivalent degree diploma.
In the event you are applying for doctoral studies at university in Greece, you are required to be in possession of a relevant diploma or master's degree program.
The language of instruction at higher education institutions is Greek. Therefore, you should be ready to prove your level of command of Greek with the results you receive after taking the exams in Greek language from any of the institutions below:
- Modern Greek Language Center of the University of Athens
- Modern Greek Language Centre of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
If English is not your first language and you might be taking courses in English while at university in Greece, you are required to prove your level of command of the English language through the results you received from your studies at upper secondary school or through the results you received at the TOEFL or IELTS tests. The minimum accepted score for the TOEFL test is usually 570 (paper-based) or 90 (Internet-based), and 6.5 for the IELTS test.
Admission to the majority of undergraduate studies (first cycle) in Greece is subject to the fulfillment of a minimum grade point requirement. This is the grade point you receive after passing your upper secondary school studies in combination with the grades you receive at the university entrance examinations in your home country. Therefore, always check with your Greek university about the minimum grade point you need to obtain. You can use the European grades comparison chart to learn how you would score in Europe.
In general, the minimum grade point to access Master's and graduate studies is approximately 7,5 out of a maximum of 10. [Learn more about the Greek grading system at higher education level]
