More about us...

Our incentives

Our international students expressed and described the difficulties they faced during all stages of applying, registrering and settling in Greece. This provided the motivation to form the "studyingreece" group and start working on the gathering and the provision of infromation to international students, showing that Greece is a very friendly and a very safe destination. The iniative has gained very high popularity among potential and existing international students, a fact that is supported by the large number of questions and "likes" we have through our presence in the social networks.

Our vision
  • Contribute to the international spread of the Greek culture.
  • Support in making Greece a favorite destination for higher studies among international students and for all levels of higher education.
  • Extend the provided information and support to incude refugees and people seeking international protection.
  • Expand the group and create a network of students and faculty members across all higher education institutions in Greece.
  • Create a European and International network of higher education institutions to support student mobility.
  • Serve as the main portal providing information and support, even at the individual level, for international students.
  • Provide continuously updated information regarding the higher education news, like new postgraduate programs announcements, legislation, news, etc.
The situation

Potential international students, face a number of important problems, such as:

  • There is little, or no, knowledge about Greece, the Greek Universities and the advantages of studying here (e.g. no fees, free books for the undergraduates, opportunity for free accommodation, etc.)
  • The choice of the country, the department, and the city of studies are often chosen by chance, since there is not adequate information at the countries of origin.
  • They don’t know the Greek language.
  • They don’t usually ensure accommodation, even for the first days, prior to their departure.
  • They have no knowledge for living in Greece, the costs of living, the culture, and other important similar issues.
  • They face practical and every day’s living problems, such as registration to the University Department, public transportation, health care, Visa issue, etc.

Our University international students pointed out the lack of information and support and we decided to take an initiative and develop a project in order to:

  • Provide information about studying and living in Greece
  • Help decisions for the most suitable department
  • Provide practical advice for the international students, both new and existing, to enjoy their studying time in Greece.
  • Answer the questions students and their parents have, regarding studying and living abroad.
