Education fairs in Greece. Welcome to the home of academia. Some of the world’s most influential scholars, philosophers and scientists lived and worked there. Today, Greece’s academic past lives on as the country maintains several high-ranking universities. Greece has always had a strong study and education fairs tradition. Mainly due to a huge demand for quality education and a chronic shortage of available places at domestic universities. With the UK as the biggest receiver of Greek students, the number of students overseas currently stands at 40,000. Education fairs are being organized in Athens and Thessaloniki.
