Registration now open for May 2023 Ellinomatheia Greek language exams

February 01, 2023

Registration is now open for individuals seeking certification for Greek language proficiency from the Centre for Greek Language. Each year, the SNF Centre for Hellenic Studies provides proctors and space at Burnaby campus to allow candidates to participate in exams. 

The Ellinomatheia or Certificate of Attainment in Greek was established in November 1998 by the Ministry of Education in response to a persistant demand from learners of Greek in Greece and in the diaspora, for official state recognition of their language level. Certification is a requriement for many professions in Greece, as well as for those seeking to study in the country. Official recognition has also been used by many students in their home jurisdictions to meet elementary or secondary school language requirements.

The exams will take place from May 23-25, 2023, at the SNF Centre for Hellenic Studies on SFU's Burnaby campus. Applications to participate are open now until March 20, 2023. Learn more on our Ellinomatheia/Greek Language webpage or the offical page of the Centre for the Greek Language (in Greek only). Applications are handled by the Center for the Greek Language and can be accessed on their website (also, only in Greek).
