AU MEd in Distance Education in Greece Receives Accreditation from NARIC

Pin It

The Centre for Distance Education (CDE) has received full accreditation approval from NARIC for the Master of Education in Distance Education (MEd) program in Greece.  NARIC is the National Academic Recognition Information Centre and is the National Agency for the recognition and comparison of international qualifications and skills.

Since the MEd is now fully accredited and equal to all other Master’s Degrees issued by Greek universities, it provides a competitive edge for the CDE in both Greek and European markets. It is also the only English language Master’s Degree offered fully at a distance in Greece.  Due to the high profile of AU, graduates from this program can gain public and private employment, in addition to receiving promotions anywhere in Europe without having to obtain further accreditation for their degree.

Over the last few weeks, the first two students from this accredited MEd degree have graduated!  Big congratulations go out to Thalia Vasiliadou and Natalia Antonopoulou on this great accomplishment.
