The main language of instruction at National and Kapodistrian University of Athens is Greek with the exception of the Departments of Foreign Languages and Literature which offer courses at  each Department’s main language.

In addition, the School of Law offers specialized programmes in English, French, German and Italian while the Departments of Political Science & Public Administration, Economics and Communication & Media Studies offer a number of courses in English.  A few postgraduate courses are also taught in other languages (mainly in English).

In all other Departments there are special arrangements for Erasmus+ students who have only English language knowledge. The most common one is the assignment of essays in English with the use of English bibliography.

The University of Athens requires good knowledge (Level B2) of Greek or English language which will enable students to communicate and function within an academic context.
