Recognition of Foreign Degrees in Greece

The following pertains to Greek and foreign nationals who have studied abroad and wish to pursue further studies in Greece or a professional carrier in a field where a degree of higher education is required in Greece. The recently established Hellenic National Academic Recognition and Information Center (Hellenic NARIC - Diepistimonikos Organismos Anagnorisis Titlon Akadimaikon kai Pliroforisis - DOATAP) needs to verify the validity and equivalence of the acquired degree with those awarded by Greek institutions of higher education. This task was performed in the past by the discontinued Inter-University Center for the Recognition of Foreign Degrees (Diapanepistimiako Kentro Anagnorisis Titlon Spoudon Allodapis - DIKATSA).

Information is provided in Greek and in English.

For up-to-date information, for clarifications and to inquire about the procedures, you may contact DIKATSA via e-mail at the address or by fax at +30-1-6756709.

Please note that due to the current downsizing of the greek civil service, the DIKATSA is due to be phased-out in the immediate future - exactly what this will entail for people with foreign degrees is unclear at the present time.
