Coming to a foreign country can be both exciting and difficult. In order to get some practical help and get to know student life you can apply for a tutor.In our Universtiy there are special tutors for foreign students working on a voluntary basis.
Accommodation is an important consideration while you are living away from home. University of Macedonia is not a campus University and due to the shortage of housing (there are only 3 dorms available), almost all the exchange students will be accommodated off campus. This can be a not so cheap option, so sharing with fellow students helps to spread the cost.
The Library of University of Macedonia is a modern academic library which aims to offer essential educational and reference work, responding to the demands of a dynamically arising academic institute, such as the University of Macedonia.

Very well organised university,the best professors
I personally think that our courses are interesting and relatable with the object of our department.
Overall a good university. Positively, it attracts significant number of international students due to the English-taught courses that it offers. The quality of the teaching personnel is relatively high with few exceptions. However, scarce connection with the job market still halts its institutional quality. Especially regarding social sciences' tracks.
