Widely recognized as the home of the philosophers, sages, and scholars, Greece is just the perfect place for higher education. 

Greece is vastly spread out into 9 regions with around 227 residential islands. 

Although Greek is the official language of Greece, English is also widely spoken. 

Pakistan is 2 hours ahead of Greece, it is situated at the intersection of Africa, Asia, and Europe. 

Athens is the capital city of Greece. This city along with Thessaloniki and Crete are popularly known as student cities. This is usually due to the incredible number of students studying in various universities in these populous cities.

2. Education In Greece

To promote and increase the literacy rate, free education in public institutions and schools is offered by the Greek government. This is also for the students belonging to the immigrant groups which are living permanently in Greece. 

About 90% of all schools in Greece are public and a majority of the pupil body study in these public educational institutions. 

The Bachelor's degree program is generally 4 years and is called the Ptychio. However, for medical and engineering programs it can be 5 years. 

The Master's degree program is called the Metaptychiako Díploma Exidíkefsis (Postgraduate Diploma of Specialization). It is of a 2-year duration. 

The doctoral degree is named the Didaktoriko. This can be from 3-5 years depending upon your area of research.
