For the evaluation of the application to the Postgraduate Studies Programme, it will be examined whether the candidate’s institution of study is or may be included in the National Register of Recognised Higher Education Institutions of Foreign Countries and whether the candidate’s degree is or may be included in the National Register of Types of Degrees of Recognised Institutions of Foreign Countries.
The Hellenic Open University, if the degree is included in the list of article 307 of Law No. 4957/2022, must request a “Certificate of Place of Study”, which is issued and sent by the foreign university. If the place of study or part of the studies is confirmed as the Greek territory, the degree is not recognized, unless the part of the studies that took place in the Greek territory is in a public higher education institution or in a recognized foreign educational institution within the meaning of paragraph b) of article 299 of Law No. 4957/2022.
The MSc “Graphic Arts – Multimedia” is structured in two (2) academic years, which include four (4) Thematic Units (Th.U.) and the preparation of a Diploma Thesis (D.E.). The minimum duration for the completion of the programme is two (2) years. The total number of credits (ECTS) required for the award of the Master’s degree is 120 ECTS.
The structure of the program is as follows:
Instructions for the declaration of Th.U.
In the first year of study, if you register a subject you can register either GTP50 or GTP51.
In the second year of study, if you choose a subject, you can declare either GTP60 or GTP61.
The presentation of the Master’s Thesis will take place after the successful completion of all the topics of the Programme of Studies.
In the process of declaring a Thesis, the previous year’s Thesis should be exhausted first and then the next year’s Thesis should be declared. For example, if a postgraduate student has successfully completed 1 Thesis from the first year and wants to choose 1 Thesis for the following year, he/she must necessarily declare the second Thesis of the first year and one from the following year and so on.
In order to complete the programme in two academic years, you must successfully complete in the first year of study two Thesis and in the second year the last two Theses in parallel with the Master’s thesis.
It is recommended that you compensate your time so that you do not choose more THEs than you can meet.
