ERASMUS INCOMING UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS
IMPORTANT NOTES FOR UNDERGRADUATE AND GRADUATE COURSES
Undergraduate courses are taught in Greek. Erasmus+ incoming students are not required to take any test of proficiency in the Greek language. However, they are encouraged to attend:
- Greek Language Course (free of charge, awards 6 credits)
- Greek Culture and Civilization (free of charge, awards 3 credits).
Students who wish to attend either or both courses must include them in their Learning Agreement (more info: https://www.upatras.gr/en/international/erasmus/programma-erasmus/mobility-for-studies/).
An undergraduate incoming Erasmus+ student may carry out her/his final year project (thesis – or part of it) under the co-supervision of one of our faculty members (info regarding our staff and their specializations may be found on our web site www.civil.upatras.gr); in this case, the student (and his/her thesis’ supervisor) have to come in contact with the faculty member in question and ask for her/his agreement.
Graduate courses are taught in Greek excluding those taught in combination with courses offered by the Department within the framework of international MSc programs. Please contact the instructor of the particular course to confirm the language.
HOW WE OVERCOME THE LANGUAGE BARRIER
The student will:
- be provided with the appropriate literature in English
- interact with the instructor in English through scheduled meetings throughout the semester
- be possibly assigned a series of take-home exercises in English
- be examined in English on the basis of a final written test at the end of the semester.
