1) For bachelor’s degree students
The tuition fee for a bachelor’s degree for the 2023-2024 academic year is reduced, according to the decision of the Committee for the Gradual Reduction of Tuition fees at Institutes of Higher Education, in comparison to the tuition fee customary in the 2000-2001 academic year.
According to Government Decision No. 808 and the instructions of the Council for Higher Education, new students for a bachelor’s degree are entitled to such a reduction only if in the 2023-2024 academic year they enrolled and successfully met the academic requirements of at least 18 semester hours.
Anyone registered for less than 18 semester hours, or who failed to successfully meet the academic requirements of at least 18 semester hours, or anyone who terminates their studies during the year and who has not yet completed the above requirements, will pay the full tuition fee without any reduction according to the number of hours in which they were enrolled.
However, the aforesaid decision on a reduction in the tuition fee is based on the Government’s undertaking to finance this reduction.
If the University does not therefore receive the cover for any such reduction from the Government, the bachelor’s degree students will pay the full tuition fee, on the date to be notified by the University.
