why study in greece?

    Greece’s geopolitical position places it at the centre of events in Southeast Europe. Greece is the meeting point between Asia and Europe and is the base of operations of many Greek and international companies in the field of trade, tourism and catering. Greece does not have a large selection of English language courses, but offers two universities where you get a US or British degree.

    Athens and Thessaloniki are top of the list when choosing study courses. As far as basic studies in English are concerned, there are a limited number of programmes, unlike in the native Greek, while for the master’s studies in English, the situation is much better. After recent events in the EU, Greece is not so popular. Nevertheless, due to the undeniable connection that Balkan people have with this country, mentality, beautiful weather, healthy and delicious food, Greece is an attractive destination for young people coming from the Balkan region.

    How much does it cost to study in Greece?


    The two main universities are the University of Sheffield and the American College of Thessaloniki. At the former you receive a British degree, and at the latter a US diploma. The cost of studies ranges from €5,000 to €9,000 depending on the programme you choose. Your citizenship plays an important role in determining the costs of other universities. For EU students tuition fees are free, and for non-EU students, their cost depends on the university and the programme of studies.


    After you have been accepted for studies, citizens of non-EU countries must go to Belgrade to apply. The documentation is almost the same as for most other countries (a mandatory medical examination), a facsimile letter from the university and a financial coverage of €6,000 to prove you can support yourself during the period of your studies.



    Greece, despite its natural beauty, beautiful weather and excellent geographical position, is not among the top choices where studying abroad is concerned. It continues to be a great tourist destination, but not so much a study destination. With the arrival of the two internationally recognised faculties previously mentioned, the situation for basic studies has changed for the better. The average cost amounts to €800 per month.

    The cost of accommodation and food varies similarly to the Balkan region. Students most often rent flats or are, alternatively, accommodated in student dormitories. After their studies, many stay in Greece to work in the hospitality industry, but most move on to another country to attend postg
