Incoming Students

Erasmus+ supports traineeships abroad for students currently enrolled in higher education institutions in Programme countries at Bachelor and Master level as well as for Doctoral students. These opportunities are also open to recent graduates.

 

By doing a traineeship abroad with Erasmus+, you can improve not only your communication, language and inter-cultural skills, but also soft skills highly valued by future employers, as well as become more entrepreneurial.

 

 

 

 

 

Incoming students should

- (depending on their academic background and research interests) seek the initial approval of a faculty member of one of TUC Schools to conduct their traineeship under their supervsion at their own laboratory. Approval is given by the supervisor by filling in and signing the document INITIAL APPROVAL FOR A TRAINEESHIP, which then must be included in the student's application package to TUC's Erasmus Office.

Accommodation

Erasmus students cannot unfortunately be accommodated at the Halls of Residence of the University Campus because the places available are already very few for the greek students themselves.

As a result, Erasmus students are accommodated in various rooms (or studios) in town. There is also the possibility that students share a room in some private owned houses. Depending on their preferences and the places available, the personnel of the Erasmus Office, will help accommodate the students and will try to satisfy their needs.

Depending on the size of the studios and their location in town, prices might range from 300-400 (per studio) per month, or about 200-250 euros per month, (per room in the house). Generally, all charges are included in the option of the house. 

Students should inform the personnel of the Erasmus Office at least one month in advance, on the exact date of their arrival.

The personnel of the Erasmus Office cannot be responsible for students who either fail to submit their application before the deadlines or those who fail to inform the Erasmus Office on the exact date of their arrival. 

Students who do not comply with the rules and the procedure must bear the responsibility to find a place to stay themselves. If, however, there are still some places available, then they will get extra help from the Erasmus Office Personnel.
