Undergraduate courses

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.

Undergraduate entry requirements

Our Undergraduate Prospectus lists entry requirements for A levels and International Baccalaureate students for each course.

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.

Students who have completed two A Levels in addition to their Apolytirion can apply for direct entry to undergraduate courses. Typical offers will require a grade of at least 17 in the Apolytirion.

This summary is provided as guidance and requirements may vary for individual courses, which often require high grades in relevant subjects.

Students taking APs or SATIIs should refer to entry requirements for the USA.
