Ptycheion in English Language and Literature at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

A ptycheion is four-year academic qualification roughly equivalent to a BA, which also doubles as a teaching qualification. During my studies in Athens I majored in Language and Linguistics, attaining a grade of 7.64 out of 10 (roughly 2:1 by British standards).
