Mediterranean College was founded in 1977 and it is the first College since 1992 that has offered in Greece academic study programmes, both undergraduate and postgraduate, of some of the top British State Universities through exclusive franchise agreements. The franchise agreement institution relieved thousands of Greek families from the stress and the great financial burden that studies abroad could entail and ensured for thousands of Greek, as well as foreign students, degrees conferred directly from the associating British state universities. In fact, today, after the signing of the Presidential Decree 38/ 2010 that integrates in the Greek Law the Community Directive 36/ 2005, the degrees conferred in Greece within the framework of franchise agreements with European Union Member States universities ensure for the graduates the same professional rights with the graduates of the Greek Universities and Technological Educational Institutes.
The British state university academic study programmes offered by Mediterranean College on undergraduate or postgraduate level cover a great range of the most modern and most popular in the labour market educational fields, such as Business Management, Informatics, Psychology, Education, etc. that guarantee young people immediate and safe career prospects both in the Greek and the international labour market.
In the twenty-first century, Mediterranean College (MC), in collaboration with powerful foreign universities, emerges as a private higher education institution with a leading role in the fields of the study of Economics, Information technology, Social Sciences, and Engineering, offering high quality programmes in a nurturing environment, where quality is always dictated by the needs of the students.
In order to realise its vision of academic discrimination, student success, educational and technological innovation, as well as social endeavour, the College attracts and secures devoted professionals and educational staff with exceptional abilities, recognized for their specialisation in the fields of teaching, student guidance, training, research and service. Building on these secure foundations and principles, the MC aims at the realisation of its vision of becoming a unique international centre of learning in Greece.
