Greece may soon become an attractive destination for international students
in higher education, as acclaimed Greek public universities are launching
new competitive undergraduate programs taught entirely in English.

Although a few of them have already been successfully operating
postgraduate study programs in English and French in recent years, the
first entire programs for undergraduate  foreigners were only introduced in
late 2020

Naturally, the first undergraduate study degree program offered in English
by a public university in Greece was the BA in Archaeology, History, and
Literature of Ancient Greece by Athens University’s School of Philosophy,
which welcomed its first students in autumn 2020 and is open only to non-EU

A year later, the prestigious School of Medicine of the Aristotle
University of Thessaloniki -the largest academic institution in SE Europe —
launched its own undergraduate study program in English.

A total of 950 applications were submitted from twenty countries — although
half of them were from Cyprus — to claim one of just 60 seats in the debut
year of the 6-year course taught in the land of the founder of medicine,
the great Hippocrates.

In the meantime, more public universities are designing their own
undergraduate study programs in the English language.
