Notes for Greece

Credentials in GreeK:
Ptychio (ΠΤΥΧΙΟ)
Metaptychiako Diploma Eidikefsis (ΜΕΤΑΠΤΥΧΙΑΚΟ ΔΙΠΛΩΜΑ ΕΙΔΙΚΕΥΣΗΣ / Postgraduate Diploma of Specialization)

*Diploma (ΔΙΠΛΩΜΑ)
Engineering is usually a 5 year full-time course (program) that leads to a Diploma. It is common practice for engineering schools within universities to award a Diploma rather than a Ptychio for these programs.

Greece was one of the original signatories of the Bologna Declaration 1999. The current degree structure, which has been in place since the early 1980s, involves three main cycles of education: typically a four-to six-year first cycle, a second lasting between one to two years, and a third cycle lasting three years or more.

The Diploma Supplement should be automatically issued to graduates. The basic content of the document should be identical for all higher education institutions.

ECTS credits are now used by all higher education institutions, whereby one year of full-time study corresponds to 60 ECTS credits.
