A student visa is required by the European Union for non-EU citizens or residents staying in Greece for more than 90 days. Semester students are responsible for obtaining the visa and will need to travel to a Greek Consulate at their own expense to apply for their passport/visa in person. Keep in mind that you should start the visa process 10-12 weeks prior to the semester you are planning to enroll. Fall Quarter students do not require a visa.

I grew up in a small town in Vermont and attended the University of Vermont, very close to home. Spending a semester in Vienna during my junior year opened my eyes to the world and ignited a passion for travel, languages and cultural exchange that I still have today. I graduated from UVM with a BA in Economics, and then saved all summer so I could backpack around Europe for five weeks with a friend. Shortly after that, I lived and worked in Sweden for a year. I have continued to travel and soak up other cultures and languages whenever I can. I truly believe that studying abroad changed the course of my life and made me who I am today. As an Admissions Officer with AIFS, I am thrilled to be helping students have similarly life-changing experiences abroad.
