Terms and Duration of scholarship
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs ensures the reservation of places at the Universities for undergraduate studies, as well as at the Greek Language Schools.

In the exceptional case that the final decision of their acceptance is pending,

Hellenic Aid has the discretion to accept the candidates as scholars under the condition of their submitting the relevant declaration of acceptance, within a period of two months. The undergraduate course enrollment takes place the academic year that follows the Greek Language Course (scholars excluded are those that already possess the Certificate of Greek Language Proficiency). Scholars are entitled to enroll, during September-October, only at the Department they are selected for. They are not entitled to be transferred to another department at a later stage.

For the University registration to take place, candidates should possess a certificate denoting their command of the Greek language (see above). If the candidate does not hold this certificate, he/she is obliged to attend the annual Greek Language course, during the first year of his/hers scholarship’s programme.

The said certificate is not necessary in the two cases stated below:
  1. Expatriate scholars are obliged to enroll directly in the department for which they have been selected, independently of the possession of the Greek Language Proficiency Certificate. In case of insufficient knowledge of the Greek language, Hellenic Aid may permit the scholar to attend a language course, in parallel to his/her studies.
  2. When the postgraduate course is held in English. This certificate is issued following relevant examinations either in Athens, by the Modern Greek Language Teaching Center of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, or in Thessaloniki, by the Modern Greek Language Center of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
