Summer Schools

Summer Schools are organized by the University of Crete and take place on both the University campuses of Rethymnon and Heraklion. These short courses offer the opportunity to combine educational courses with inspiring social activities, explore the Minoan and the modern Cretan civilizations, discover the spectacular scenery of Crete and join local cultural events.

UoC Summer Schools provide students with an opportunity to experience quality education/research training in a variety of disciplines: Ancient Greek History, Archaeology, Life Sciences, Arts and Humanities, Education, Chemistry, Medicine, Computer Sciences, Business and Social Sciences.

The University also organizes every year a short course on Modern Greek language for non-native speakers.

Summer Schools address different learning levels: undergraduate, postgraduate, doctoral. These short courses are accredited, and most award between 5-6 ECTS on completion.
