Parallel Studies at ACT

With the requirement demands in the employment market increasing each year, it has become imperative for any graduate to secure their place in their respective field; and with every field depending even more so on other disciplines and sciences, parallel studies provide a unique opportunity to steward oneself towards a more well-rounded professional résumé.

Parallel to Greek University Studies allow students at Greek public universities to follow another program at ACT. Given the flexibility of programs at American colleges, students are able to manage the demands of both programs and equip themselves with a broader skillset.

For example, a student of Medicine who aspires to manage their own medical facility would benefit from completing a Bachelor’s in Management.

What are the advantages of Parallel Studies at ACT?

Graduate with 3 degrees

ACT is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), one of the most prestigious accrediting bodies in the US, responsible for accrediting some of the most highly ranked US colleges and universities such as Harvard and Yale.

In addition, ACT’s undergraduate degree programs are validated by the Open University, UK.
