Full-time courses across our five faculties typically last for three to four years, although some degrees such as medicine and architecture have a longer duration.

If you have taken the Apolytirion Eriaion Lykeion or Apolytirion of Lykeio (National Certificate), we can typically accept grades ranging from 18.5 to 20.

Greek students with Apolytirion scores lower than 18.5 are usually required to complete a foundation programme before commencing undergraduate studies.
