Perrotis College welcomes short-term faculty-led groups throughout the year. Our location, infrastructure, and experience hosting groups enable us to provide a wide array of services and options to create programs tailor-made around each group’s interests and needs.
Greece is famous for its hospitality! In that spirit, we welcome the opportunity to host interested faculty or administrative staff on our campus to see firsthand everything we offer. If you would like to visit the American Farm School, please email Eleni Kantylzoglou
or Helen Yarenis
for more information. We also host a familiarization trip each June. Email us for more information.
Courses in our study abroad program are transferable through our School of Record agreement with Warren Wilson College. We are also accredited in the UK by Cardiff Metropolitan University. Additionally, Perrotis College is currently seeking US accreditation through NECHE. We foresee that by Summer 2023, all transcripts will be administered by Perrotis College.
What is the application process?
Prospective students must submit the ONLINE APPLICATION FORM
and a resume. A minimum GPA of 2.5 is required for acceptance. Upon receiving the form, the study abroad committee will review the application and supporting documents. An email notification and acceptance letter will be sent to the email the student has provided.
Do I need a visa?
All of our programs are under the 89 day limit, therefore there is no visa requirement for our study abroad students.
Do my credits transfer back to my university?
Yes. All courses, including research and work internship positions are transferable 3-credits. Transcripts will be sent from our School of Record, Warren Wilson College, to the student’s home address and home institution within 45 days of completion of the program.
Do I need to know Greek?
No. Perrotis College study abroad programs are taught in English. Also, in Thessaloniki and most parts of Greece, English is widely spoken. However, Greek lessons are a part of the Greek Cultural Experience course in order to provide students a richer understanding of Greece.
How do I pay? Does Perrotis College offer scholarships or financial aid?
There are two payment methods. Either the bill can be sent directly to the student’s home institution or to the student. This depends on the collaboration between the home institution and Perrotis College. Please speak to your study abroad advisor or Perrotis study abroad staff to ensure correct method of payment. Any scholarships or financial aid must be provided by your home institution.
What classes can I take?
Study abroad students may enroll in any class they desire under our specialized fields of study: Sustainable Agriculture & Management, Food Science & Technology, International Business, Environmental Science, and Digital Marketing. The only mandatory class for all study abroad students is the Greek Cultural Experience.
Do I have to work on the farm or fields?
It is not a requirement to work on our educational farm and/or fields. Even though some courses provide field trips and field work, only prospective students interning on our farm are required to work provided that they applied for the position.
What do class schedules look like at Perrotis College?
Perrotis College class schedule follows the UK academic system. Which means that classes meet once or twice a week, 3 to 4 hour lectures (sometimes including lab work). This means that students may not have classes on some days. We encourage students to fulfill their time by volunteering and/or exploring the city of Thessaloniki.
