The online application form provides further details on the documents required. Please note that gathering the necessary documentation and preparing your application may take a while. So make sure you start working your application well in advance of the deadline.

How do I verify the authenticity of my school / academic certificates and transcripts?

If the documents are not issued by the issuing body in English, they will need to be translated in English by a sworn translator (sworn translations have legal validity and are recognized by official institutions). Then, your documents will need to be verified. According to The Hague Convention (APOSTILLE) this can be done by the relevant authority in the country where they were issued. More information can be found here.

To verify the authenticity of a document issued by a state that has not ratified the Hague Convention, the holder of the document for verification applies to the Greek Consular Authority in whose region of responsibility the document was issued so that the said Consular Authority can contact the agency that issued the document in question and verify its authenticity. If the authenticity is verified, the Consular Authority certifies the authenticity of the document. If you are unsure of which services are available for your country or the country where the document was issued, please check here.

After the interview the evaluation committee will confer and will notify you with one of the following three decision letters:

  • Unconditional acceptance: the committee is convinced that you meet all the requirements and you have secured a place in the programme, irrespective of further grades you may be awaiting to be issued.

  • Conditional acceptance: the committee believes that you are on a good trajectory to meet the requirements, but they want to see additional evidence. The additional requirements will be described in the letter and once you meet them, your conditional offer will become unconditional.

  • Reserve list: your application meets the standards but it fell short due to high competition in the application process. You will enter a reserve list and if a spot becomes available you will be notified.

  • Non-acceptance: this can occur for a number of reasons including (i) there are omissions in your application, (ii) your application does not meet certain standards, or (iii)
