Study in Greece

What is “Study in Greece” ?

Study in Greece is Greece’s national agency for the internationalization of Greek Higher Education. Operating under the auspices of four Greek Ministries: Education (http://www.minedu.gov.gr/), Foreign Affairs (http://www.mfa.gr/), Culture (https://www.culture.gov.gr/), and Tourism(https://mintour.gov.gr/), SiG is fully supported by the Greek State.

The Study in Greece portal (https://studyingreece.edu.gr/) hosts and maintains all the pertinent information related to the Greek academic world, study options for international students and student life in Greece. Presenting and promoting the wide variety of international study programs offered by Greek Public Universities, SiG constitutes the official bridge between the Greek and international academic community. SiG’s core mission is to promote Greek Public Universities abroad through the participation in international education fairs, the organization of international promotional campaigns and the development of a series of digital platforms that enhance networking and collaboration between Greek and international universities, academics and researchers. In addition, SiG organizes short-term courses in collaboration with Greek and international HEIs, which offer international participants the opportunity to combine studies, culture and leisure in Greece.

SiG is continuously expanding its international network of collaborating universities, foreign embassies and educational and cultural organizations, through the signing of memoranda of understanding (MoUs).

SiG also aspires to become the point of reference for the Greeks of the diaspora who want to find useful information about studies and educational activities in Greece, discover the Greek culture and connect with their roots.
