National Technical University of Athens

The National Technical University of Athens was founding in 1837 as a technical school operating on Sundays and holidays to architecture students. By 1840, the school has grown into a regular day school offering a wide range of programs. The NTUA has also been at the heart of some hugely significant events in Greece’s recent history. After German troops occupied Greece from April 1941, the NTUA adopted a new role when it became a centre for the National Resistance movement, while maintaining its standing as an academic institution.

Today, the university has over 14,000 students. There are nine academic schools that are split into 33 departments. The university is divided between its central Pattision Street, which now hosts only the School of Architecture, and the main 190-acre Zografou Campus which is 6km north of the city centre.  

Exchange places

The exchange agreement between King's and The National Technical University of Athens allows for up to 2 Full Year Equivalent (FYE) places for undergraduate and postgraduate. This equates to 2 students going for a full academic year OR 4 students for a single semester OR a mixture of the two. 

Eligibility for King's students

Important: Final decision on students' study abroad application to their host institution rests entirely with that host institution. Students must also meet their departments’ academic requirements to obtain final departmental approval to study abroad. It is usually at least a 60% average prior to departure, however this can vary amongst departments. Students should double check with their Study Abroad Tutor if they are unsure of their academic requirements.

King’s students that wish to study abroad at this institution should check the ‘Undergraduate options by department’ page to see if this institution is indeed an option for them. 

Estimated living costs

Please see here for current estimated living costs, but actual expenses may vary depending on student lifestyle. A reminder that King's students on exchange are not required to pay tuition fees to the host university, but you may incur administrative and/or orientation fees at the host. There may also be mandatory insurance costs, and transcripts may incur a fee.

Please also note that, if required, student visas often require applicants to supply evidence of financial support throughout the duration of the study abroad programme. Sometimes this will mean showing financial evidence for a specific amount, so please pay attention to the advice on this from the host institution.
