Applications for postgraduate studies (Masters and PhD) are made directly through the relevant academic department.   Prospective candidates can find all the necessary information on the application and selection procedures through the postgraduate programme guide and/or through the website of the relevant department.  

Calls inviting applications to a Masters programme are announced through the University’s homepage and through the Department sites.  Application deadlines are usually in March for Masters programmes starting in October (beginning of the new academic year), but check the exact dates through the Department site &/or with the Department’s postgraduate secretary. 


PhD candidates can submit applications at any time, but are advised to make an application not later than June for PhD studies that will begin in the new academic year (October). PhD candidates should contact the postgraduate secretary of the Department in question concerning specific requirements and deadlines.


Candidates for the Masters programmes must have a Bachelor Degree in a related field and PhD candidates are normally also required to hold a Masters degree.  If the Bachelors or Masters degrees were obtained from a University outside Greece they need to be approved by the National Academic Recognition Center (NARIC). In this case the formal starting date for doctoral studies is the date of approval of the degrees by NARIC.
