It is a remarkable educational institution that offered me the possibility of a maximum academic experience. However, a negative point is the liking of specific teachers, which pose a problem in the educational process, highlighting the element of authority. Another negative element is the absence of a link to the labor market.
The Aristotle University of Thessaloniki is the oldest educational institution for research and development of classical studies in Thessaloniki. It contains a very good database suited to the development of the humanities, but lacks the support of certified qualifications in the context of lifelong learning
I graduated many years ago, but the five years I spent there are unforgettable. The majority of the teaching staff were great, easily accessible and committed to providing high-quality learning experiences. Student life was awesome and the academic culture very supportive.
