Student Reviews

Thirsty for experiences
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

In general it was pretty good

Focus on what matters most!
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

In general, the school is satisfactory. It provides you with the right knowledge and stimuli so that you can evolve. I just think that (as in most universities) the teaching was very formal and boring, without sparking your imagination. It was more a matter of memory than creative logic. Overall I was happy with the degree as I was given the opportunity to perform Erasmus...

A good university in Greece

Very fine university, trying their best to go bigger but that's not possible without public funding
