Greece’s unparalleled intellectual history and enviable climate make for an attractive postgraduate proposition. Whether you’re interested in the classics or modern maritime law, a Masters in Greece represents a fantastic opportunity to earn a respected qualification in a beautiful part of the world.
Greece’s academic heritage stretches back centuries, and its current higher education institutions continue that proud tradition. A full participant in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), Greece organises its university degrees according to the Europe-wide Bologna Process. This means that Greek qualifications are recognised worldwide.
As a key member of the Erasmus funding programme, Greece also offers plenty of international opportunities in the form of collaborations with fellow European universities.
Combine that with an enviable Mediterranean climate, delicious local food and an affordable cost of living, and you'll find that Greece is compelling place to study a Masters.
There are currently around 27,600 international students in Greece.
Masters programmes in Greece are typically one year in duration, with three months normally devoted to the research and writing of a thesis.
The average cost of a Masters in Greece is €3,625 for domestics/EU nationals. However, this is only an average and costs can vary from university to university. In some cases you might not have to pay any tuition fees and in others you may have to pay up to €15,000.
Greek is the primary teaching language at universities in Greece, but a drive towards internationalisation has seen increasing numbers of programmes - particularly postgraduate ones - being offered in English.
If you’re an EU/EEA national, you won’t need a visa to study in Greece. If you’re from outside the EEA, you’ll normally need to apply for a ‘type D’ visa before you arrive in Greece.
