Erasmus Programme


The School of Philosophy and Education has signed 35 formal bilateral agreements with universities abroad, thus being able to accommodate the mobility of approximately 100 students annually. Acknowledging and transferring credits is conducted according to European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), which has been integrated recently to the jurisdictions of the ERASMUS programme in order to enhance the mobility of students and the collaboration between universities of countries of the European Union.


All teaching is conducted in Greek. Incoming ERASMUS students that are not competent in Greek may take on a scientific written assignment in English or in any other language, on a topic related to the course they have selected to attend, after of course, having arranged this with the relevant faculty member. Students who know or are currently learning Greek may actively participate in class.



Courses offered in the academic year 2019-20


  • Course in English:

The Department of Education offers (upon request) exclusively for incoming ERASMUS students the course

Adult Educators in Europe: Issues of Collective Identity Construction and Professional Development (5ECTS|3hrs/week).

The course explores the conditions needed for the personal and professional development of adult educators and trainers, enhancing the attractiveness of their profession and therefore strengthening the idea of quality in adult education in Europe. Incoming ERASMUS students can choose this course as part of their studies. A course portfolio with learning material and a CD is available for ERASMUS students only, in the Department's Library (room 207, Old Building, 1st floor). Attendance is mandatory for all ERASMUS students. A written assignment in English of no more than 5.000 words (approximately 20 pages) is required to successfully pass this course. The passing grade is 5/10.


Incoming students that are to attend courses in the School of Philosophy and Education, are expected, upon their arrival at the Aristotle University, to contact the coordinator of the bilateral agreement, as well as the ECTS coordinators (of Philosophy or Education, according to their subject of studies). The ECTS coordinators are responsible for guiding ERASMUS students in their selection of courses and for any changes in the Learning Agreement, which has been signed prior to the students’ arrival.
