CSSL24 / Application


We try to make CreteLing affordable to as many people as possible and we charge only the fees that are absolutely necessary for the running of the school. We are happy to announce that we have received a grant from the Van Riemsdijk Foundation to offer a small number of fellowships in the form of a tuition waiver or in the form of a dorm fee waiver. If you are a recipient of a Van Riemsdijk fellowship, you will be notified of this in the letter of acceptance. Students of the University of Crete do not pay tuition fees. Retired faculty (from any university) do not pay tuition fees, in recognition of their contribution to the field, but are not eligible for dorm accommodations. We are, unfortunately, unable to accept applications from high-school students.

For participants who are interested in connecting with others for shared off-campus accommodations, there is a related option on the application page.

Admissions Procedure

Everyone interested in attending CreteLing needs to apply to the school by submitting the online application form, uploading their CV (in pdf format) and, if a student, providing the name of a referee. (Please make sure your referee submits the letter by the deadline. Without it you cannot be admitted to the school). Before submitting your online application, please read the instructions, terms and conditions carefully.

If you apply by April 3, you will be notified about the status of your application within 15 days. The tuition fees associated with this early deadline are lower than the tuition fees associated with the regular application deadline (May 8).

After receiving their acceptance letter, applicants need to confirm their participation via e-mail to the administrative officer at creteling.ao@gmail.com and proceed to payment to the school (i.e. registration) within the deadline mentioned in their letter of acceptance. Accepted applicants who do not confirm or pay within the deadline will lose their spot.

Applicants who submit their application by the regular deadline (i.e. May 8) will be notified about their admission to the school by May 23, at the latest. Again, after notification regarding their admission, applicants need to confirm their participation via e-mail to creteling.ao@gmail.com and proceed to payment within the deadline that will be given in their letter of acceptance.

Registration is completed only after payment has gone through. Registered participants will receive a letter with their password in order to log in to Course Material and select their Courses.

  • I) Faculty (active or retired) and PostDocs need to fill in the online application form and submit a CV. No letter of reference is required.

    • c) ask their referee/supervisor/instructor to send a reference letter to creteling.admissions@gmail.com. If we do not receive a letter of reference, your application is not complete, so please make sure you stay in touch with your referee to make sure the letter is submitted.
Note that:
  • a) UoC students will receive a tuition waiver.
  • b) UoC students will be eligible for the tuition waiver only if they fill in the application form using their institutional e-mail address.
  • c) Van Riemsdijk fellowships will be based on merit (based on the applicant's CV and reference letter) and will be equally distributed among undergraduate and graduate students.
  • d) After submitting your application, you will see a confirmation page. This means your application has gone through successfully. Please make sure you save a copy of the confirmation page (in the unlikely case that something goes wrong). If you are unable to submit your application, please write to creteling.ao@gmail.com
