Scholarships and financial aid
The School of Journalism and Mass Communication awards up to a total of 6 scholarships annually (up to 2 for each pathway) to candidates who have already been given an unconditional offer and can provide evidence of genuine financial need. Candidates should apply for these scholarships until August 31, 2016, and, if selected, they are liable for reduced tuition fees i.e. € 1.000, payable in three equal installments on the aforementioned dates.
In addition, every academic year 3 scholarships are awarded to the students that have the top overall grades in each pathway, upon the completion of the 1st semester of their studies. These scholarships take the form of a fee-waiver for the remainder of their studies, i.e. are equivalent to the amount of € 2.000. In the event that the students awarded the scholarship have paid their tuition fees in advance, they receive a refund of the aforementioned amount.
Applicants are strongly advised to seek information about the educational agreements that exist between their country of origin and Greece, since these typically include the award of grants for study in Greek Universities.
