Study in Greece (SiG), a non-profit organization backed by three government ministries, has ambitions to establish Greece “on the international educational map”.

SiG plays a key role in promoting Greek education and academia at important international events and fairs.

The organization hopes to bring Greek universities to the attention of an international audience as places to study, conduct research, and collaborate. SiG also draws on the strength of Greece’s culture making it an attractive place to study.

Study in Greece (SiG) promotes Greek universities

“The Study in Greece portal has everything an international student and the international academic community in general need to know about studying, researching, collaborating and living in Greece, including study options, cultural activities and day-to-day practicalities,” the SiG official website states.

The organization “represents Greek universities at international education fairs and promotes Greek Higher Education through diverse promo-and-info events, roadshows and presentations organized in close collaboration with the Greek diplomatic authorities, Embassies and Consulates overseas, as well as foreign diplomatic missions in Greece.”

SiG also conducts international promotional campaigns to present the country as an attractive option for students to pursue higher education and attend university.

Additionally, SiG strives to foster Greek history and culture through a range of initiatives. Their programs feature a unique blend of academic courses and cultural experiences, enabling participants from around the world to deeply engage with Greek history and culture.

SiG also serves as a valuable resource for the Greek diaspora, providing information on educational opportunities and facilitating connections with Greek culture, allowing individuals to reconnect with their roots.

Development and future plans

Currently, SiG is backed by four ministries of the Greek government: Education, Religious Affairs and Sports, Foreign Affairs, Culture, and Tourism.

The organization says that it “is continuously expanding its international network of collaborating universities, foreign embassies and educational and cultural organizations, through the establishment of new cooperation agreements and MoUs, as well as the bundle of the services it offers to the Greek and the international academic community.”

Christos Michalakelis, chairman of SiG’s board of directors, recently commented that he is very pleased “that universities have set the development of international programs among the top priorities, which is reflected in the actions that are being developed and the findings that emerge at each summit.”

“It is important for the Greek state as a whole to continue to support Study in Greece, in order for Greece to become an international educational hub. The first findings are already obvious and very encouraging, but it takes a coordinated and rapid effort,” he added.
