Hellenic American University is host to a diverse, multi-cultural student community, with international students accounting for about 20% of the total University student body. As a university with a mission to educate global citizens, it is committed to maintaining and strengthening the diversity of the University community, and welcomes applications from students throughout the world.
International applicants who wish to study at Hellenic American University must obtain the appropriate student visa before enrolling and attending classes. The appropriate documents for the visa application will be issued upon admission provided (a) they provide proof of sufficient funding to cover the cost of their studies (tuition, fees, living expenses and incidentals) for the duration of their program and (b) have paid the required non-refundable deposit. Please note that verifying proof of sufficient funding is a legal obligation on the part of the University and unless satisfied the institution will be unable to issue the appropriate visa documentation
