Mediterranean College is the first independent Anglophone College to be found in Greece, in 1977. Since then, it has been continuously operating according to standards of countries with a long tradition in higher education, such as the United States and the United Kingdom. The Mediterranean was the first college in Greece (in 1992) to “franchise” a degree programme from a British State University.
Today, in partnership with reputable UK universities and awarding bodies, Mediterranean College offers a broad portfolio of franchised undergraduate, postgraduate and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses. Students have the option of registering to programmes that are delivered on a full-time or part-time/ flexible mode and are taught in either English or Greek.
Upon successful completion of the courses, students are awarded degrees and qualifications that are issued by the collaborating Universities awarding bodies. The Mediterranean is a College licensed and approved by the Hellenic Ministry of Education and its degrees are internationally recognised and professionally equivalent to the ones awarded by Greek State Universities. Degrees are also recognised by the UK NARIC.
The College conforms to multiple quality benchmarks: It is accredited by the British Accreditation Council (BAC), as an institution providing higher education and is reviewed by the UK Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), an organisation that monitors the quality standards of UK Universities. Currently, Mediterranean College operates two campuses in Athens and Thessaloniki, located in the centre of the cities thus being easily accessible by all means of public transportation.
In a contemporary learning environment, the College offers its courses in 7 Academic Schools: Business School, School of Tourism & Hospitality, School of Computing, School of Engineering, School of Psychology, School of Education, School of Health Professions. All students are supported in their learning experience by highly qualified and committed academic staff, rich and developing libraries, extensive IT facilities and electronic resources and fully-equipped labs and workshops.
The College has also undertaken leading initiatives, including the development of a holistic Employability Scheme that enhances students’ employability, in collaboration with a wide network of industry partners.
As a student-centred college, Mediterranean makes every attempt to develop strengths and capabilities in every student by offering support services, such as Personal Tutoring, Counselling, Learning Support and Career Services, Bursaries & Scholarships. The Student Affairs, the Alumni and the International Office secure our students’ welfare and the active Students’ Union promises an exciting student life.
In the 21st century, Mediterranean College – in collaboration with reputable overseas universities – has evolved to a higher education institution with a leading role in Greece, in the study fields of Economics, Business, Computing, Social Sciences, Tourism, Health Professions and Engineering.
