Education through teaching and research is central to the University’s mission. This is a dynamic process which involves the integration of new knowledge generated through basic and applied research for enriching teaching and developing curriculum. 


Excellence in teaching is a complex aspiration:


“The concept of excellence in academic teaching goes beyond the capacity for clear, comprehensible, interesting teaching while in class. It encompasses all the activities that open new scientific horizons for the student, provide inspiration and guidance through research, impart a sense of scientific values and inspire a quest for truth”


V. Xanthopoulos - St. Pnevmatikos Award Secretariat, FORTH


The University aims for quality education and aspires to excellence in teaching in the degree programs offered at all levels:


  • Bachelors (B.A, B.Ed,  B.Sc, MD)
  • Masters (MA, MSc) 
  • Doctoral (PhD)


Each of the University’s Departments offers an undergraduate programme with a wide range of core and elective courses leading to specializations within each discipline. Bachelor degrees involve 4 years of study, and the Medical Degree follows a 6-year programme. Postgraduate studies and research training benefits from inter-disciplinary collaborations between Departments, with the Research Institutes of FORTH, and with other national and international partner institutions. The University currently offers 52 Masters Programs, as well as doctoral education in all fields.
