The Erasmus+ Program is the flagship of the European Union’s Education Programs to encourage students’ cross-border mobility within Europe. The objective of the Program is to cultivate a pan-European approach to Higher Education with the aim of promoting innovation in Europe and creating a European Higher Education Area.

Mobility of students to other countries and exposure to other cultures not only enriches their student experience, but also prepares them for a world of employment that requires flexibility and adaptability, strengthening Europe’s workforce.

Support offered to incoming Erasmus+ students

Incoming Erasmus+ students are supported in many different ways, including but not limited to a combination of the following:

  1. Whole group work – lectures in English so as for the Erasmus students to socialize and work with Greek students
  2. Small groups work so as for the Erasmus students to work in collaboration with Greek students under specific projects/assignments
  3. Individual consultation meetings with the lecturer of the course (mentoring) in order to meet the specific needs of the student
  4. Additional readings, bibliography and support materials in English
  5. Assignments and written and/or oral tests in English to assess the student in the selected course(s)
  6. Social activities with the Greek students who attend the course(s)

"I gained a lot both in terms pf experience and in terms of new knowledge. I learned to live with other people, to be part of a small community. To get out of my comfort zone and to try new things. I learned a lot about my field of study, which I hope I will implement in practice later. To work in different ways. The Erasmus program is a life experience that only if someone lives it, will understand how much it offers you!"

“I consider the Erasmus program as one of the greatest opportunities for young people in the European Union. Nowadays there is no greater knowledge than the exchange of cultures and ideas. Personally I love traveling and I have participated in many Erasmus+ programs as a student. Even before I choose what I want to study I knew I wanted to do an Erasmus+. DO IT!! There is no person that I would not recommend to participate in Erasmus. It's the best choice and honestly I'm not exaggerating. You fill 3 suitcases with experiences and 2 tons of wonderful memories”
