In addition to the above:

  • Certification issued by the University as a recognized higher education institution by the state of origin.


All the above documents issued by authorities of another State (school, other educational authority, etc.) must be certified for the authenticity of signature by a Greek diplomatic authority abroad or by the diplomatic authority of the foreign country in Greece with ratification by the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Assuming a positive assessment of the student's full application file, New York College will issue the Letter of Acceptance in order for the applicant to request the STUDENT VISA from the Greek Embassy or Consular Office. This letter is sent to the Greek Consulate of the country of origin of the international student for the issuance of the Student Visa type D (D) to study at New York College in Greece. Each Consulate has its own requirements for the issuance of a Student Visa and a further personal interview may not be needed.  Others may request more supporting documents (e.g., financial situation, parental guarantees, criminal record, certification). For this reason, contacting the local Consulate for detailed information is recommended. The Student Visa lasts up to 90 days and is valid from the time it is issued by the competent authority. It is therefore very important to travel to Greece as soon as possible and start the application for a Student Residence License immediately because this process is time consuming.

If your VISA is rejected, New York College undertakes to reimburse the applicant the full amount already paid, minus EUR 650.  Therefore, we recommend that you apply only if you are absolutely sure that the above-mentioned documents are available.

Student VISA holders are not allowed to work in Greece.

International students are required to have a good standard of English before starting any program. For students whose native language is not English, NYC requires a minimum of IELTS 6.0, or a recognized equivalent.
Students do not need to have taken the test before applying, but will need to have gained the minimum test scores before they begin classes. The English Language Department offers classes and workshops to improve language skills for students whose English level is less than the required standard.

NYC may require students from some nations to submit High School Diplomas or other academic qualifications to World Educational Services (WES) for an official evaluation.

Students whose level of English is lower than the required they may still apply and register onto intensive English Language classes in the first semester of their studies with NYC.
