2017

Establishment of University Schools and Departments – Law 4452/ 2017

According to Law 4452/2017, a Polytechnic School is established at the University of Ioannina and operates since academic year 2017-2018.  It is composed of the following Departments:

  • Materials Science Engineering
  • Computer Science Engineering
  • Architectural Engineering

Moreover, a Department of Tourism Studies is established at the University of Piraeus.  The Department is part of the School of Economics, Business and International Studies.  Its mission is, among others, to contribute to the graduation of high-level scientists with a comprehensive education on tourism matters, in general and on the tourism industry, in particular.

Finally, a Department of Economics and Tourism Management is established at the University of Aegean, based on Chios island.  The Department’s mission is the systematic training of scientists capable to meet the needs of the international labour market in economy and tourism management, as well as tourist enterprises.

2016

Law 4369/2016

The National Register for Civil Service Executive Officers is being introduced according to Law 4369/2016 “National Register for Civil Service Executive Officers, position classification structure, appraisal, promotion and selection system of Heads (transparency-meritocracy and effectiveness in Civil Service) and other provisions” within the framework of reorganising the Civil Service.  The Register consists of candidates for occupying administrative positions of responsibility, such as Presidents, Vice-Presidents and Heads of Legal Entities of Public and Private Law.

Teaching Staff of all ranks, HEIs and TEIs (Universities and Technological Education Institutes) are eligible to register as candidates, upon their request, in the afore-mentioned electronic Registry, which is maintained by the Supreme Council for Civil Personnel Selection (ASEP).  The selection of candidates for filling in administrative positions of responsibility (the so-called Civil Service Executive Officers) is being conducted after a call for Applications by the competent Minister, upon recommendation of the Special Council for Civil Service Selection (ESED), also introduced by the same Law.  ESED is responsible for the appraisal of the qualifications, the scientific and research work and the overall work experience of the candidates in relevance to the position announced.

Moreover, according to the above-mentioned Law, the position of the Civil Service Secretary is proclaimed in every single Ministry and candidates are selected from the National Register for Civil Service Executive Officers. Civil Service Secretaries fall under each Minister and support the execution and administrative implementation of policies, as these are defined by the Government and its Institutions. 

2015

Law 4327/2015

According to the Law 4327/2015, students are no longer automatically disqualified if they fail to complete their studies within the normal period of study which equals to the minimum number of semesters necessary for the award of diploma, according to the indicative curriculum of the Faculty plus four semesters.

2014

Facilitating access for students with disabilities in Higher Education Institutions


According to Law 3794/2009, those suffering from serious diseases are not enrolled in Departments of Higher Education Institutions, where due to the nature of science exercised is difficult for them to attend, in accordance with a reasoned decision of the Board, approved by the Senate and announced before the beginning of the academic year for which the selection is made. However, the new Law 4283/2014 (Government Gazette 189/issue A/10-09-2014), repeals this provision, opening the way for access to people with disabilities in Higher Education Institutions.

Other Reforms in Higher Education

  • The Ministry of Culture, Education and Religious Affairs is moving ahead as regards the implementation of law for the abolishment of studies with no time limit. Students enrolled in Higher Education prior 2006 are required to finish their studies until June 2014. This is the first time that Higher Education Institutions are requested to clean their student registries up.
    • Those who owe their dissertation, thesis or internship or have participated in examinations or had declared to attend courses in at least one semester during academic years 2012/13 and 2013/14 are entitled to sit in exams for all subjects, for the examination periods of September 2014 and February 2015. However, student status for these cases expires as of 30-04-2015 onwards;
  • During 2013, external evaluation of Higher Education Institutions was completed up to a percentage of 85%.
  • During 2014, the completion of the evaluation of Higher Education Institutions is expected, as well as the publication of relevant results.
