Information about professional registration
Please note that programmes delivered overseas do not lead directly to professional registration in the UK.
Queen Margaret University has validated the following allied health professional (AHP) programmes in Greece:
- BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy
- BSc (Hons) Dietetics
- BSc (Hons) Occupational Therapy
- BSc (Hons) Speech and Language Therapy (formerly known as Logopaedics)
- BSc (Hons) Podiatry
These programmes are delivered by the Metropolitan College at their campuses across Greece. These programmes are not approved by the United Kingdom's Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and do not provide direct eligibility to apply to the HCPC register. If a graduate from these programmes wishes to work as a registered AHP in the United Kingdom, the graduate would require to apply for HCPC registration through the international route. Applications are considered on an individual basis and further details are available from the HCPC website. While Queen Margaret University and Metropolitan College cannot guarantee that any individual graduate will be accepted for registration by the Health and Care Professions Council, there have been numerous examples of graduates from the programmes who have achieved registration.
Graduates of Metropolitan College who wish to work as allied health professionals in Greece need to follow the Greek legal framework the EC Directive 2005/36/E. For further details, please visit the Greek Ministry of Education website.
The following programmes have been validated in line with guidance from the relevant Greek professional body:
- BSc (Hons) Nursing

These degrees are not approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council. Following the UK's exit from the European Union, the legislation regarding recognition of nursing and midwifery qualifications in Greece has become more complex. The partners are liaising actively with the Greek and UK governments in order to resolve the difficulties that have emerged. Please contact Metropolitan College for more up-to-date information.
