The courses were totally connected with the market. My professors were extremely competent and very open to us. We could always ask for advice from them about the courses or projects. UoM gave and still gives the opportunity to develop yourself and volunteer. Moreover, the university is international, and it is easily seen by the events that are happening very frequent in which professors from other universities (local and foreign are joining).View more
I ‘ve been a student in this University for 4 years, and I studied in the department of applied informatics. Overall I have a great experience. The majority of the professors will help you and they will have nice lectures. This university has a great position in the city of Thessaloniki almost on city center but next to a part of the town that the rents are a bit lower. Also is a clean environment with nice esthetics. Although I can highlight some problems, first of all the classrooms are a bit small in comparison to the amount of students and this is a little disturbing especially in the Labs. Moreover The political parties might be aggressive by trying to make you join them. To sum up I have great memories of that place if you want to study informatics combined with economics is the place for you, because this university focuses on the economics field and next to Computer science you will learn a lot about them. If I had a choice between AUTH and UOM I would definitely choose again the university I joined. I will never regret it.View more
Good professors and amazing opportunities. The University of Macedonia is focusing on economics, so while studying Computer Science there I had the opportunity to attend many classes related to management and economics.View more
It’s an average uni with some really good teachers.
The facilities aren’t that good and not nearly enough for all the students to coexist in harmony.
The food is ok. And if you don’t like it you can go across the street for free food from another uni 😁

University of Macedonia is well-organized. You can always find someone to help you, either a professor or an administrative staff. Thanks to the synergies the University has with a variety of businesses, you can find an internship through the Career office. Also, the food is good and generally it’s clean. Last but not least, some professors are very helpful not only for their courses but as a mentor also.View more
