Study in Greece

Want to study in Greece, the very birthplace of academia (or, in Ancient Greek, Akadēmía)? This Mediterranean country is widely recognized as the intellectual wellspring to which modern western culture owes many of its linguistic, philosophical, cultural, legal, social and ethical beliefs and systems. Concepts of individualism, freedom, democracy and government all have their roots in the great thinkers of Ancient Greece, whose ideas are still widely read and debated today. Keen to follow in the footsteps of Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Epicurus and so many other great questioners and innovators? Read on…

Greece: Extra funding for universities?

Published on Mar 21, 2015

Greek universities are facing hard times. The university of Athens is no exception: just this year it is facing a deficit of almost five million Euros. The new government has secured a eurozone bailout extension for 4 months, but will there be any extra funding for universities?

Universities in Greece

There are just over 20 universities in Greece, spread across the country and all within the public sector. While teaching is mainly in Greek, specialized study programs are also available in other languages (most commonly English), at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. These universities are joined by 15 Technological Educational Institutes (TEIs), which offer higher education programs with a focus on practical and professional skills, in subjects such as applied technology, healthcare, agriculture, management and art and design.

Six universities in Greece are included in the QS World University Rankings 2014/15, with the country’s highest-ranked universities as follows:

National Technical University of Athens

The National Technical University of Athens is Greece’s highest-ranked institution, placed within Europe’s top 250 universities and among the top 450 universities in the world. Established in 1837, the National Technical University of Athens (or NTUA) is one of the oldest universities in Greece. Today it has around 15,000 students, most studying five-year programs that lead to a diploma equivalent to a Master in Engineering or Science. Its nine academic schools (faculties) cover a range of engineering disciplines, as well as architecture and applied mathematics and physics. Teaching is in Greek, but students attending as part of the Erasmus exchange program complete projects in English. NTUA has several campuses, all located in the lively and historic Greek capital, Athens.

University of Crete

The second Greek representative in the QS World University Rankings is the University of Crete, placed among the world’s top 460 universities and the top 250 in Europe. The university’s two campuses are both on the largest and most populous of the Greek islands, Crete: one is in Heraklion, the administrative capital of Crete, and one in Rethymno, which is an ancient town dating back to the Minoan civilization. Established in 1973, the University of Crete has developed quickly, and has almost 17,000 students enrolled across its five faculties. It participates in various educational and exchange programs, including Erasmus, Lingua, Tempus and others, and has numerous partner universities across the world.

EBRD to invest in Greece

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) will start investing in Greece on a temporary basis in response to a request from the Greek authorities for the Bank to support reforms and a return to economic growth.

The EBRD’s shareholders voted for the Bank to invest in Greece until the end of 2020.

The Bank’s investments – backed by technical assistance and policy dialogue – are intended to strengthen progress in the reform of Greece’s economy and contribute to its recovery.

The organisation will deploy its expertise in attracting and encouraging foreign and domestic investment, strengthening the role of the private sector and deepening regional integration.

Specifically, the EBRD will help address the issue of insufficient capital for Greek private companies, especially small and medium-sized enterprises. This is a key barrier to growth, where the EBRD can contribute significantly with its equity and commercial debt products.

The EBRD will also engage, where possible, in expanding the private sector’s role in infrastructure and energy. Greece is a natural trade and investment partner for many countries in south-eastern Europe where the EBRD has a strong presence. The Bank will support investments and policy measures which are conducive to integration.

EBRD President Sir Suma Chakrabarti said: “We are very happy to be able to apply our particular expertise in the private sector to the Greek economy. The EBRD will be fully engaged to make the most of its temporary mandate in the country. By concentrating on the private sector we are seeking to actively contribute to the reform and recovery of the country’s economy.

Greece is a founding member of the EBRD and to date Greek companies and banks have invested €2.3 billion in joint investments with the Bank in the EBRD’s recipient countries, with a focus on south-eastern Europe. In 2010, under the Vienna Initiative, the EBRD supported the subsidiaries of Greek banks in the region at the height of the global financial crisis.

The government of Greece requested that the country be granted EBRD recipient country status, in a letter dated 25 November 2014 which said that EBRD engagement would “provide value-added in tackling the consequences of the financial and economic crisis and addressing the structural challenges in the Greek economy that it exposed”.

The request was reconfirmed by the new government on 2 February 2015. Following the Governors’ approval the EBRD will now engage with the Greek authorities to prepare a country strategy for Greece which will provide the framework for its engagement and identify priorities.

The EBRD also intends to open an office in Athens.

Vocational Education and Training

The changing role of VET

The workshop will ‘kick-start’ the new (2015-2017) Cedefop work on the changing role of vocational education and training. This work, to be based on a combination of different research methodologies, aims to provide an in-depth and detailed insight into the overall standing and role of vocational education and training compared to other sectors of the education and training system. In many countries we now observe that the number of candidates attending initial VET is diminishing, reflecting the perceived attractiveness of higher, academic oriented education. As a consequence, the lack of skilled workers is becoming a problem in certain parts of the economy. At the same time we can observe that the character and profile of VET is changing, for example by the introduction of advanced vocational courses at higher levels (levels 5-8 of the EQF). This combination of threats and opportunities signals that VET is undergoing fundamental changes. Gathering a limited number of researchers and key stakeholders from different parts of Europe, the workshop will provide an opportunity to reflect systematically on the challenges and opportunities facing VET and how these differ between countries.  The workshop will provide inputs to Cedefop’s planned research activities and help to clarify their conceptual and methodological orientation.
