About IHU

The International Hellenic University (IHU) was established by Law No. 3391 in October 2005 and is based in Thessaloniki, Greece. The IHU is Greece’s first state university, where programmes are exclusively taught in English.

Our philosophy is based upon the following three concepts:

  • Academic excellence
  • Practical relevance
  • International outlook  

With backing from the Greek State and the regional business community, the IHU aims to develop as one of Europe’s leading research and academic institutions.

It already attracts a strong international academic faculty and outstanding students from Southeast and other European and Black Sea countries.

We draw from, and build upon, the uniqueness of our multicultural student body while preparing students for the challenges of a rapidly changing global society.

Our Mission

IHU’s strategic mission is threefold:

  • Provide research and education that meet the needs of the international community.
  • Enhance understanding of the economic, socio-political and technological issues facing the societies we serve, through teaching and research of the highest academic standard.
  • Create an international and diverse student and faculty community to foster greater understanding between cultures and nations. 

The IHU currently offers sought-after postgraduate degrees in three Schools:

  • Economics and Business Administration
  • Humanities
  • Science and Technology

As a state University, all degrees awarded are accredited by the Government and are recognized in the European Union and internationally.



The university campus is located close to Thermi on the Thessaloniki - Nea Moudania  highway (14th km).

Visitors are welcome to view the facilities. Appointments can be made to meet staff and be shown around.
