Welcome to the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens
Studying at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens
The National and Kapodistrian University of Athens in the framework of the Erasmus programme has established bilateral agreements in specific scientific areas with more than 300 European Universities, with which it exchanges annually an increasing number of students for undergraduate, postgraduate or doctoral studies. The number of the Erasmus incoming students is more than 4.700 since the beginning of the programme.
Courses at the University of Athens are normally taught in Greek. However, in some Faculties there are also courses in other languages (mainly in English) while in all Faculties there are special arrangements for Erasmus Students with no sufficient knowledge of Greek language.
The Modern Greek Language Teaching Centre of the University offers Greek language courses to incoming Erasmus students. Students who have succeeded in the examinations at the end of each semester obtain 6 ECTS credits.
The Department of European and International Relations provides information and support to all incoming students, so that they can be active members of our university community.
Orientation Days for the Erasmus incoming Students are organized at the beginning of each semester.
