Universities start opening their doors for in-person teaching

Hundreds of students returned to lecture theatres, labs and classrooms in Greece on Monday 4 October after an academic year of remote education in 2020-21, as several public universities started opening their doors for in-person teaching, reports Ekathimerini.

Athens University’s schools of philosophy and literature, the universities of Crete, Ioannina and Thessaly, and the National Technical University of Athens were among the institutions that opened a week ahead of the majority of the country’s faculties.

Students and educators need to display a COVID-19 vaccination or valid recovery certificate to be allowed into offices and teaching areas, or must have a negative rapid or PCR test, taken twice a week, up to 48 hours ahead of attendance.
