Education for the Goals

Courses in University of Crete

We are in the process of mapping SDG-related degree programmes and courses offered at the University with a view to promoting the inclusion of education on sustainability in UoC curricula, open on-line courses and summer schools.

The language of instruction for most of these is Greek, but English options are usually available for incoming Erasmus/exchange students.  

As a course can relate to more than one of the SDGs, you can sort by broad category of SDGs [SOCIAL  –  ENVIRONMENTAL – ECONOMIC] as well as by clicking on the individual SDG you are interested in 

SDG course mapping currently concentrates on the following Goals.
