Students sitting their university exams

We work closely with universities, colleges and educational institutions in the UK and can make arrangements to administer examinations, resits and admissions tests in Greece for candidates who cannot travel to the UK.

Why take or resit a university examination with us?

We will make all the necessary arrangements for the local delivery of your exam, including:

  • compliance with the regulations of each university, educational institution or professional organisation
  • arrangement of a suitable venue with appropriate facilities
  • receipt of your exam materials and their secure storage
  • dispatch of scripts via a reputable international courier to ensure safe and traceable delivery.

Please note that we are unable to provide facilities for examinations that have a practical component.
