Student mobility takes place only through the bilateral agreements which are signed by faculty members of the University of Piraeus and apply for the academic year in question. One or more faculty members (Academic Coordinators) from each department are responsible for the bilateral agreements with European universities. The students who will participate in the Erasmus+ programme are selected by the Academic Coordinator in February and March for the whole of the following academic year (winter and spring semester). Students can find the names of the Academic Coordinators for their department and the partner institutions in the relevant booklet which is posted by the Department of International and Public Relations of the University of Piraeus.
In addition to the general entry requirements, the Academic Coordinators who are responsible for the bilateral agreements may specify further conditions, which must be published in the call for applications. Before selecting the host university, students must first submit an application to the Academic Coordinator and find information about the university in question. Guidelines regarding the registration process, curriculum, duration of semesters, availability of accommodation and other practical issues that are essential for students who wish to study abroad are available on the websites of all universities under the headings ‘International Relations’ and ‘Erasmus+ programme’. Students can also consult the information files of partner universities which are kept in the University’s Department of International and Public Relations during opening hours (Tuesday to Thursday, 10am – 2pm).
Moreover, the Erasmus+ programme offers students and recent graduates of the University of Piraeus the opportunity to complete a placement in universities, businesses and organizations in the countries that participate in the programme, in order to gain work experience in an international environment.
