The School of Medicine of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA) is launching an English medical degree programme for international students in September this year.

The university said in a statement that the programme would be the same as the one followed by students in the Greek course.

Eligible students for the course will have had to attend the “final two classes of high school (or equivalent school) in a country other than Greece and should have obtained a high school diploma or other equivalent secondary education diploma (June 2022 or earlier) that entitles them to admission to higher education institutions in the country where they graduated”.
