Universities in Greece

State Universities (AEI)


Technological Educational Institutes (TEI)

Technological Educational Institutes have recently become part of the Higher Education in Greece. They are typically equivalent to Universities but practically, their graduates have still fewer rights in both public and private sectors. As of 2005, they confer 4-year bachelor's degrees, but they run graduate programs only in collaboration with other Universities.
