The Hellenic American Union has been administering exams since 1957. It is the ideal choice for Cambridge English exams for the following reasons: unparalleled experience and expertise; commitment to Quality; excellent experience for exams stakeholders; technology and innovation; passion for exams.
The administration of language examinations and examinations which lead to professional certifications is an indispensable part of the Hellenic American Union’s orientation to support stakeholders’ professional and personal development. No other exams administrator in Greece has such a large, special unit as its Center for Examinations and Certifications, dedicated exclusively to exams, with so much personnel committed to serving exams stakeholders’ academic and administrative needs; no other exams administrator provides so many valid and reliable exams under one roof; no other exams administrator retains such excellent partnership with so many international, prestigious examination boards.
The Hellenic American Union administered its first language-competency examinations in 1957 – its year of establishment. In 2012, it administered its first Cambridge English examinations after becoming an autonomous, open Cambridge Assessment English test centre.
The Hellenic American Union brings to the table unrivalled years of knowledge and expertise in successful exams organization and administration and effective accommodation of various needs of those candidates who participate in the exams it administers.
We constantly employ our ‘know-how’ in the best interest of all exams stakeholders (language school owners, teachers, students, candidates, parents) and take great pride in offering a variety of opportunities for internationally recognized, high-quality certifications.
The Hellenic American Union Center for Examinations and Certifications always places emphasis on the quality of services it offers. To this end, the Center applies a quality management system to all its functions and procedures using, among others, the following means:
- systematic, objective, and rigorous selection, training, and evaluation of personnel in accordance with Cambridge Assessment English regulations;
- closely-monitored exams administration;
- standardized rules and guidelines for all examination processes;
- systematic, innovative, and needs-based support to candidates, foreign-language schools, and teachers.

It has been awarded by TÜV HELLAS - member of TÜV NORD Group – with the certificate ISO 9001:2015 for its following activities: "Planning, organization, and administration of examinations" and "Provision of services to candidates, foreign-language schools, and teachers".
Our commitment to exams integrity and excellent services to all exams stakeholders have rendered the Hellenic American Union Center for Examinations and Certifications one of the most prestigious exam administrators in the international English-language testing community.
During exams administrations, at the heart of what we do is the best experience we are able to offer to Cambridge English exams stakeholders.
