Therefore, the exemptions for the above-mentioned courses will be withdrawn from 1st of June 2019.
Graduates of University of Piraeus and University of Aegean will be still able to apply to have these exemptions granted until the end of the academic year 2018/19 finishing 31 May 2019.
There will be a specific route for them to apply for, and be granted these exemptions, upon request directly by each student.
