It comes as no shock that Greece shares several of their core fundamental classes with that of American universities, such as the University of Indianapolis which has ties to the Indianapolis American city. However, the campus is stationed in Athens, Greece. However, what may come as a surprise to some students is the amount to technical colleges available to international students. Necessarily, Greece is not traditionally thought of as a “tech center” city, yet, many up and coming technological apps, cryptocurrency, and other future tech innovations are coming from this country.
Cost of Living for Students
Greece is one of the more affordable European countries available, and students will be able to budget more accordingly. Students should set aside per month at least 350 EUR – 800 EUR. When it comes to budgeting while living in Greece, students will find that it is a lot easier to do so when they live closer to the college or university they are attending. This will cut down on all transportation costs.
Tuition Cost and Expectance
Luckily, all international students are only expected to pay, €1500 per year for undergraduate studies. This is significantly less than the surrounding European countries that are within the EU.
When it comes to studying for a Master’s program, students can expect the public universities to ask for at least a minimum of €1500-€2000 per academic year.
Languages Spoken in Greece
While the official native language is Greek, the country of Greece has a profound and interesting history of multi-cultural heritage. Other languages spoken throughout the country include Albanian, Turkish, Aegean, Arumanian and Bulgarian, Macedonian (Slav-Macedonian), Russian, Romani, Cretan, Cappadocian, Pontic, Maniot, Thracian, Tsakonian, Yevanic, German, Italian, , French, and English.
While international students will have no trouble being easily accommodated while in Greece, students are encouraged to take part in the native history of the country’s main language. Not only is this an enriching experience but this can allow a student to better understand their surroundings and make friendships throughout the country.
Also, in Greece, students who are studying Greek will actually be able to benefit from full waived tuition fees because the student is studying the history of that country. Which is seen as a specialty and important priority among the universities or higher education centers in Greece.
