Our Foundation Courses prepare students who wish to pursue their university education in Britain. The curriculum of the programme aims to bring students to a level equivalent to passes in three GCE A-level subjects. The one-year foundation courses last for two semesters (total of 30 weeks of teaching) starting at the beginning of October and ending in mid-June. Attendance of classes is on a daily basis with 4-5 teaching periods (hours) on average per day depending on the specific foundation course. The course can also be taken over two years as part-time to suit students who wish to complete it along the final two years of Greek Lykeion. All our foundation courses are delivered in English.
