Located 6km Southwest of the town, the University of Ioannina, one of the leading academic institutions in Greece, became an independent university in 1970. As of 2014, there is a student population of 15,000 enrolled at the university (11,000 at the undergraduate level and 3,500 at the postgraduate level).
Ioannina University is one of the most attractive univercities in Greece, because studying in Ioannina is a lot of fun.
Located in a beautiful, modern European town, the university is simply perfect for students, as everyone who studies there thinks so! The town is large enough to offer a variety of activities, but small enough to feel like home. The distances are short, so everything is less complicated than in a big city. That's why it's also an ideal place to live.
