The subject of this work concerns the development of Higher Education in Greece and in particular postgraduate studies. The work, although referring to subjects at the undergraduate level, focuses on the Postgraduate level by examining the legislative framework for the establishment and operation of Postgraduate Programs in Greece. The analysis also includes the legislative provisions on Ph.D. Programs in Greece. Interest in developing and reforming higher education data in Greece as well as in other EU Member States has been linked in recent decades with EU actions such as "Europe 2000", the "Lisbon Strategy" and more recently program "Europe 2020", aimed at promoting the knowledge economy in the EU, by developing research, employment, technology, productivity, information, investment, etc. The Bologna Declaration (1999) promoted the creation of a European Higher Education Area that extends beyond the borders of the EU Member States and has influenced developments in Higher Education. The objectives of HELEX were equality, freedom, autonomy of institutions, lifelong learning, mobility, ensuring quality and transparency, establishment of a credit transfer system, equality and recognition of qualifications, cooperation of the highest establishments, the establishment of the first, second and third courses, etc. between the countries of the European Union. The thesis examines aspects of higher education in Greece such as organization, quality, funding, and the legislative framework. It also presents the main standards in Europe, the Anglo-Saxon and the Continental, in the field of Higher Education and especially Postgraduate Studies.
