The program is well organized and students have the ability to select from a range of courses, depending on their field of specialization. I also liked the separation of the semester into two bimesters, which enables a more focused learning environment. I also like the students here. They are very friendly and I have already met several fellow students from other subjects. The fact that the majority of students were Greek only helped to get to know the country and the language even better."
