Exchange students are being accepted only from partner universities with which there are signed bilateral agreements in specific subject areas. This information can be obtained by contacting the International Relations/Erasmus Office of the home university.

In order to plan their study programme Erasmus students should be informed by the website of the relevant Department of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (http://en.uoa.gr/schools-and-faculties.html) about the offered courses and their ECTS credits. Then, students should contact their home University coordinator and ask for the approval of the courses they have selected.

Following course selection, students should fill in their Learning Agreement for Studies that will be obtained by the Erasmus Office of their Home Institution and then have it signed by the Departmental Coordinator of their Home University.  The Learning Agreement should be sent to the European and International Relations Department of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens together with the student’s Application Form.

Courses at the University of Athens are normally taught in Greek language. However, there are also courses in other languages, especially at the Foreign Language Faculties and the Faculty of Law which offers specialized programmes in English, French, German and Italian. Also the Faculty of Economics and the Faculty of Communication and Media Studies offers some courses in English. A few postgraduate courses are also taught in other languages (mainly in English). In all other Faculties there are special arrangements for Erasmus+ students. The most common one is the assignment of essays in English with the use of English bibliography.

As not all incoming students are fluent in Greek at the beginning of their study, the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens requires good knowledge (Level B2) of the English language to allow students to communicate and function within an academic context.

The UoA offers Greek language courses to Erasmus+ students, in order to enable them to understand and read the Greek language.  Even if many of the  incoming students take courses in English, basic knowledge of the Greek language will help them to get acquainted with everyday life in Greece. 

The Greek Language Courses are free-of-charge and offer 6 ECTS per semester.

Please refer to the Modern Greek Language Teaching Center website for further information about the courses and registration details.

Academic Year 2017-2018:

The students who attend the various classes of Modern Greek at the Teaching Centre comprise an audience of differing places of origin, ages, educational background and goals. They enroll in the classes with different levels of Greek knowledge, some with more or less time at their disposal, in the hope of improving their knowledge of Greek. In order to meet the needs of its students, the Teaching Centre provides programmes with varied duration (eight month, six month and five week courses), different levels of knowledge (beginner, intermediate and advanced), different times of lessons (morning, noon, afternoon or evening classes) and intensity (intensive or less intensive courses).

Students may choose the time and duration of the course. The creation of classes depends on student demand with a minimum of 15 students per class required. Before each course commences, they write a placement test and are divided in classes in accordance with their level of Greek language knowledge.

The duration of the teaching hour is 45 minutes.
