The problems concerning education of immigrants in general and those groups who come from a different cultural background in Greece are rather complex, and, as a result, there are difficulties in dealing with these problems. In addition, in multicultural societies such as Greece, the tolerance for diversity and equality of opportunities are required for a multicultural education. In this case study we investigate the opinion of the native students regarding the studies and the provision of equal opportunities to immigrant students.
