Your eligibility:

To be eligible for admission, prospective students must hold a Degree in Law from a Higher Educational Institute. The Steering Committee may also accept a Degree in a field other than Law, provided that at least some of the course taught are related to the LL.M. Programme.

Language proficiency requirements

Prospective students must provide proof of at least a C1 level certificate of the English language. The proficiency must be demonstrated by means of an internationally recognized test (corresponding to C1 level).

Candidates who do not possess a title which proves their competence in English language can instead sit a placement examination which will be conducted by one of our academic staff, based on a legal text.

Admission criteria

The Admissions Committee will assess each application, based on the following criteria and adhering to our equal opportunities policy:

  1. The grade point average (G.P.A.) of Degree in Law or a relevant subject, as demonstrated by a full academic transcript of records.
  2. The grade point average (G.P.A.) of a postgraduate Degree in Law or a relevant subject, as demonstrated by a full transcript of records (if any)
  3. The applicant’s curriculum vitae (in English).
  4. The applicant’s proficiency in the English language. If English is not the applicant’s first language, proficiency must be demonstrated by means of an internationally recognized test (corresponding to C1 level) or a University Degree taught entirely in English.
  5. The applicant’s skills in the French language, as evidenced by the respective language certificates (if any).
  6. Personal interview with an admissions representative, which will take place by electronic means. Only candidates who meet the admission requirements will be invited to interview.

Only for candidates who have completed their undergraduate studies at a non-Greek University:

According to the Greek law 4957/2022, holders of academic degrees awarded by foreign Higher Education Institutions do not have to apply to DOATAP for the recognition of their degree, as a prerequisite to continue their studies at a higher level in a Greek Higher Education Institution (MSc; PhD).

For continuing your studies in Greece, you apply directly to the University and program you are interested in, according to its admission requirements.

The University is responsible for the academic assessment of your degree/s. For this purpose, the University examines whether the institution that awarded your title belongs to the National Registry of Foreign Recognized Higher Education Institutes and whether the title type belongs to the National Registry of Foreign Recognized Academic Title Types of recognized foreign institutions posted on the DOATAP website.

Certificate of Place of Study is mandatory under the Law 4957/2022 only if the degree title has been awarded by an Institution included in the list of foreign Institutions awarding degrees through a franchise agreement with private entities in Greece, under the article 307. In this case, in addition to the other supporting documents specified, a “Certificate of Place of Study” (issued and sent by the foreign university) is also required. Be aware that when a foreign institution certifies as place of study (in whole or in part) facilities of a private institution in Greece, recognition of academic equivalence is not feasible.
