According to the Institute of International Education’s (IIE) annual Open Doors 2023 survey results, an increasing number of Americans are choosing Greece as a study destination. More precisely, Greece has risen in the global rankings to become the eighth most popular study-abroad destination for US students, with 4,484 US students enrolled in Greece for the 2021/22 academic year. Greece ranked ninth in 2022 and seventeenth in 2018, demonstrating Greece’s tendency to become a top destination for American students.
At the same time, a growing number of Greek students chose the United States for their studies, with a total of 2,539 Greek students studying in U.S. academic institutions during the 2022/23 academic year, marking an increase of 5.5 percent compared to the prior academic year. Almost half of the Greek students in the United States (1,141) attended graduate programs, 790 students attended undergraduate programs, and the rest attended other, non-degree programs. The previous year, 2,407 Greek students studied in the United States.
